Many Thanks

Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and got to share lots of love with family and friends.

I wanted to share some photos of our Thanksgiving dinner table.
I have to say that my mom sure has a magic touch with her talent of creating a wonderful ambiance in our home.  Since she is an amazing floral designer, we always have fresh flowers and a whimsy of creativity floating throughout the home.

My parents have this ridiculously awesome dining room table that was designed by the Landscape Architect Jack Chandler.  The steel table is a creation of his feng shui combination of art and functionality.  The table has a center that is hollow to allow artistic creations to come to life out of it.  

For Thanksgiving I helped my mom create this wild centerpiece.  The first object put into the center was a large branch.  We then added dry florals, feathers and leaves.  I strategically placed wheat grass in a way that created movement, like they were blowing in the wind.  We added fresh Casa Blanca flowers to bring a pop of freshness to the table.  It ended up being a perfect Thanksgiving centerpiece that was artistic, yet functional-- as it didn’t obstruct anyone’s view at the table.  

I was quite productive this Thanksgiving break—I turned into an Art & Crafts machine!

Here is what I did:
-Started and finished knitting an entire scarf 

-Painted a painting
-Made hand-made Christmas cards for friends
-Made ornaments for my parent's Christmas tree

I was a non-stop knitting-baking-painting-craft machine!

Boy, did it feel good to start AND finish some projects though!  I will post my creations soon to share with you!
