Greetings, dear reader!

As promised, I am back with some fun ideas for your thanksgiving table! 

 First, however, I would like to say how thankful I am for all the artists (of every stripe) in the world. Artists like Mary Engelbrieit who share their love and passion via their incredible artwork makes my heart soar! Thank you! You make the world a more beautiful place and I for one do NOT take that for granted!

I recently purchased some old editions of Home Companion magazine...I just love how Mary shares her artwork in each edition! Here is a sweet image that I absolutely adore:

I just love the sweetness of this I started thinking about ways I could use it on my table...first, I did a little photoshop magic...

I moved the "Thank God" sentiment to the bottom of the stack of leaves, and then expanded the "leaf pile" outward. Trim around the image and voila! Napkin rings! (cut additional rectangles of white paper and glue to the edges of the images if you need to make the napkin rings a bit larger!) Be sure to click on the images twice to get the full sheet size to open.

Print one image per page and make "thankful crowns" for each guest and family member...

Again cut to size a strip of white paper and glue to the edges of the image to create a paper crown!

I hope you have fun with these adorable images! More soon!
