Digital Doodles in the News & Thanksgiving Decor

Hello! What's the weather like in your neck of the woods? Is is chilly? Does anyone have snow? We have a cloudy, drizzly day here in North Carolina. The perfect day to put on some music and do some crafting. Or  wouldn't it be fun to do some baking! I'm forever watching my weight and right now I need to loose about three pounds, so the baking will have to wait until next week! ;)

Anyway, I was excited to see the Digital Doodles Home Sweet Home stamp was in print over at Scrapstreet. The talented Amy Heller created this card a while back and it caught the eye of the folks at Scrapstreet.


Such a beautiful and creative card! Amy printed one of the houses from the image onto a real piece of wood! Very creative, isn't she? I love all the pieces of paper, stitching and buttons!

Just a reminder and in case you didn't see my Tuesday post, all Digital Doodles stamps are 25% off this week exclusively at Two Peas in a Bucket. Most stamps are just 74 cents!

I managed to take down the Halloween decorations and put up some Thanksgiving pretties over the past couple days. Would you like to see?


Here's the mantel with a leaf garland, a berry wreath, a pilgrim couple and so on. I love rich autumn colors!



This is the console table in the family room. It's fun to incorporate regular household items into holiday displays such as the pitcher that's usually in the kitchen and I placed a pumpkin in the bird cage. All you need to make your own Thanksgiving display are a few pumpkins, leaves, dried corn, and fruit.


This end table in the family room has a top shelf and one at the bottom. The top shelf is usually occupied by a box of tissue, nothing special, but the bottom is seen through the glass and makes it look pretty. These items, except for the leaf stems are everyday items too.


I how I enjoy these large glass blown pumpkins I purchased at Target a few years back! The back side of them is open to place candles in. You should see how beautiful they look at night with the soft glow of candle light! The mirrored tray was a recent purchase at one of my favorite antique stores. Just $20! I can use it year round for any holiday display!

Do you decorate for Thanksgiving. I used to decorate just for Christmas with the exception of a few pumpkins at Halloween and Thanksgiving. Maybe a bunny and some eggs at Easter. In recent years I've really gotten interested in dressing the house up for each season/holiday. It's a good time to move some things around and keep the house looking fresh and different.

I thank you once again for popping in to 'see' me. I'm looking forward to some blog hopping today so I can see what everyone else is up to. There's nothing like viewing all of your crafty projects to get me in the mood to do my own crafting. See ya soon! :)
