Okay so I left you at the wreath which is still such a favorite of mine. But we also had a really cool Thanksgiving idea too. So I originaly got this idea from http://www.babeofmyheart.com/. I tried to find it but lets face it I'm highly distractable. If you go over there you probably would find it in the begininng of her November blog posts. Any hoo, she painted a tree on a large piece of canvas and then put a wooden dowel at the top with some string then she had all of these leaves that she would write what she was thankful for and then attach them onto the tree form through out the Thanksgiving season. I loved it but again let me remind you I am highly distractable and I wasn't going to do all of that. Well, low and behold, I remembered that I had an iron tree (do you remember those hallmark trees that you hung pictures on?). I saved it even though I had zero use for it but I just knew I couldn't throw it away. E would have killed me. It wasn't something that was bought with a 40% off coupon. So, I pulled it down out of some closet and used a leaf stencil I had in my scrap book stuff and waa-laaa. The Blankenship family Thankfullness tree.
