I have added a box of chocolates from my favorite local chocolatier! Now this gift can be enjoyed *after* Turkey Day right? Enclosed will be a white pumpkin plate, cloth placemats and napkins in Fall colors, Thanksgiving paper cocktail napkins, Fall leaf candles, a set of silk Fall leaves to scatter about, a sweet little *gobbling* turkey and 4 happy harvest time crackers for your holiday table! Good luck! Now, this sweet gift arrived the day after my mother was hospitalized so I am very slow in thanking my treasured friend, Sheila. Sheila is one of our dear Canadian bloggers and a more special lady could not be found anywhere. She is a talented writer and has the best heart, the sweetest soul. Please pop by and visit her if you have not yet done so. You will be warmed by her charm. Thank you Sheila...this arrived at a time I needed to find a smile. The sweet socks have warmed my tootsies and oh how good that chocolate is! I love it! The magazine is wonderful! I have had it with me on some recent late nights and it was such a precious diversion! The *to Do List* is just what this addled brained lady needed! Grace and I both enjoyed the red wrap with the cute kitty stickers! She cut each one off and has them saved on her memory board! How can I properly thank you for your kindness? I send you love and warm hugs and all my thanks. This is the front of the card Sheila packed inside...it is exactly how I feel about her and how I feel about each one of you. I have so much to be grateful for...so, so much.

Sweets Gifts and My Heartfelt Thanksgiving Giveaway
Popping in to say I am still working my way through blogland a few at a time. Please know I am visiting you all and catching up on all your news even if I am unable to leave a comment. You are all so special to me and I have such warmth in my heart from all the sweet words that have given written here in the past few weeks. I feel blessed each day to have discovered this world of blogging and to have forged the friendships I have with all of you. Yes, I am so blessed to have my beloved life long friends here and around the country...people who have known me forever, seen all my bad habits, and STILL like me! No small feat! I hope they know how much I cherish each one of them. But with every sunrise I remember how lucky I am to have *met* each of you here in blogland. The support and love and friendship that I have discovered through this modern medium is a gift. A gift that I do not take lightly. To say thank you to you all I have put together a little Thanksgiving box. I do wish I could send one to every one of you who find your way here and actually read the drivel I write. That is not possible unfortunately but I hope that one of you will enjoy the little box and be able to use what is tucked away inside. Yes, I am late to get this done. I will take what comments are left between now and Monday at 6 am. If you left a comment today or yesterday and do not get back (Weekends are like that I know!) I will put your name in the hat, so to speak, as well. This way I can pop it in the mail Monday afternoon and give it a chance to arrive before Thanksgiving Day. For all my dear Canadian friends, I realize it is far too late for you this year but if one of you is the recipient, I hope you can tuck it away for next year! For those in Europe perhaps it will be something fun for you to have next Fall...a little fun from a silly American lady.
