  1. What beautiful, beautiful images, Marsha!!! I am with you- I won't decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. This year I did put my outside lights up because we had some warm days (unheard of here this time of year). However, I won't light them until Friday...I am kinda old school like that!
    Have a blessed Thanksgiving, my friend. xo Diana

  7. Hi Marsha, went to Sutton place blog got an Eng. Muffin bread recipe, it's 5 AM and I realize now not to cook before a few cups of coffee. Forgot to let it rise, It's been in oven for 10 minutes, just pulled it out and top is hard, guess it won't rise now. Warning be awake before cooking.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  8. Wishing you and your family and friends a wonderful Thanksgiving Day Marsha. XXXX

  9. Marsha-

    I hope that your Thanksgiving has been wonderful.


Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have taken a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
