I picked them up for you as a little souvenir on a recent beach trip to Mexico. Enter to win by leaving a comment on this post briefly telling me your favorite holiday memory–funny is preferable but doesn’t increase your chances to win, ha. I’ll leave comments open through December 3rd, giving you time to revive from the Thanksgiving coma.
While it would be nice to be back on this Caribbean beach…
…I am looking forward to this Thanksgiving weekend as a last burst of fall before heading into Christmastime. A fire is flickering in the dining room, the guest room is ready (reveal soon–looks gorg!), and the pantry and refrigerator are stocked with all the fixings for cozy meals. And, y’all, branches bedeck the house like a woodland wonderland. I’m going out on a limb to say that this post leaves you inspired. (I really shouldn’t have, sorry.)
You see, when I put a few fall branches in my kitchen this week and saw the breathtaking effect, I couldn’t stop there. Because if there is one nice place for fall branches inside, there are hundreds.
The leaves fill in the gaps, furnish where furniture is missing, create that drama needed in an unfinished home. You may have time, if your region provides, to cut your own before the turkey is served.
There are more leaves in the house, but I’m sparing you.
I am thankful for you all who stop by The Painted House. Mostly I feel like I’m barely plugging along here, light years behind the blogging times, but it is still fun for me. I hope you find inspiration here in the offbeat beauty of life.
I hope you enter the little giveaway–a nice little gift for you or you could regift this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!
