Thanksgiving Follow Up


Thanksgiving Day I spent 2 hours cleaning the nook glass and got the little tree up but not decorated.
I love the sparkle of clean glass.



Bob brought in one of the largest ever of our purple Kings Mantle flowers and I snapped it for you to see the brilliant purple.

I amThankful I am  in Florida with brilliant sunshine and bare feet and flowers for Thanksgiving.

Perfect Purple Kings Mantle

and showed it to the lazy dogs soaking up sunshine.

pretty sparkle in that glass.
In Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving we have brilliant sunshine but it's covered with clouds, we have bare feet but we have to have the thermostat turned up to at least 75 and we have flowers but their silk :)

I love to LOOK at sparkling glass but I tend to be a klutz so I don't collect much glass. It's not safe in my presence. :))

Oh, very nice! But the dogs don't look impressed! LOL

Marie Flutterby said...

One dog is like "I don't care mom" and the other is thinking "Can I eat it?" lol love your pups ♥

Beautiful flower and goblet shot!

The sparkling glass and lights is indeed festive, Sandra. We have not even started or thought about any decorating as we are too busy sorting and packing for another trip to NH.

Your photos are great Sandra. Love that sparkling glass and the gorgeous purple color of your flower. Cute doggy pic too. Enjoy your day in that balmy Florida weather :-)

Happy dogs. They don't know how lucky they are. And I too love sparkling glass and also little white lights.

Ginny said...

TWO HOURS?! HOW can it be? The King's Mantle is beautiful and fit for a king...or queen. Jake is showing some interest, but Baby wants nothing to interrupt her nap!

Scott said...

This is a beautiful and vibrant flower. I guess dogs just don't appreciate the beauty with their B&W vision.

Rebecca said...

Pretty glass. I could use some of that sunshine today.

Florida is really terrific in the winter time isn't it? I love the sunshine and the colors. Say what product do you use to clean your glass so well?

Terri Buster said...

Very pretty and sparkly!

Susannah said...

Every picture is sparkling like crazy. It is so shiny....it could blind me...like the flash of a camera. See I told you, you were so clean that your home is as clean as a whistle! You know....I like it myself! The purple flower is fabulous. I think I enjoy it so much now that it is snowing up here and 42 degrees tonight. I want spring so I can grow my flowers like you do! Take care -

Nice to see the sparkling glasses with a bit of fir peeping close by. We've had snow and since we are northerners it just feels right at this moment. As does the sunshine.
Barefeet still work indoors:)

Catherine said...

Enjoy your warm sunshine you lucky girl!

I love the sparkle of the tree and glass.

Ida said...

We had lovely warm weather, in the 60's for Thanksgiving. Today it was 8 degrees out this morning. Brrrr....should warm back up to the mid-40's next week.
Your glass stuff looks very pretty and sparkly there.

Deb said...
