Everything Thanksgiving Wrap-Up

So how was everyone's weekend? Ours was pretty good! BUT, this weekend was the end of Daylight Saving Time...now it's getting dark at around 4:30 pm...and my boys were up at 4:45 this morning...seriously 4:45??? I didn't even know there was a 4:45 a.m. Does your state follow this crazy time "rule?" (I think almost all of them do now...) There was an explanation about why/how it started on one of the radio stations this morning...something about farmers & farmhands & whatnot...(I wasn't really listening...IT WAS 4:45 A.M. for Pete's sake...)...but I'm thinking about starting a petition to eradicate this crazy custom...

Anyway...my eyes are now clear & I've had my first gallon cup of coffee, so let's move on...

I can't tell you how fantastic the Everything Thanksgiving Celebration was! I got some fantastic ideas...and my list of "to-dos" got a LOT longer...I hope you found as much inspiration as I did! Now, hopefully I can accomplish some of the things on that list in the next 2 weeks (yep...that's how long we have until Thanksgiving...holy crow).

I want to share just a few more of the projects that caught my eye...

I can almost smell these clove-studded oranges from Steph at The Silly Pearl...aren't they wonderful? My dreary kitchen is desperately in need of just this very thing...so guess who's heading to the store today to pick up oranges and cloves? That's right...my husband...(ha).

If you haven't seen Jaime's (Crafty Scrappy HappyFall Mantel before now, then you must head over to her blog to check it out. This girl has the most amazing style...everything she touches turns to gold...I LOVE her use of feathers in her decor...beautiful...

These beautiful Fall Yarn Topiaries from Sharon at Crafts 'n Coffee would make the perfect Thanksgiving centerpiece...the colors and textures are so warm & cozy...love...

And these Fall Letter Tiles from Nikki at Everything Under the Moon are just darling! She uses a technique that I had never heard of before...Elmer's glue & paint combine to make the coolest crackle effect...

If you didn't get a chance to check out all of the projects that were linked up you can find them here...

And if I've featured YOUR project (now or ever!), I would love if you would grab an "I Rock" button to display on your blog (you can find the code on my sidebar)...

Make sure you come back tomorrow...some BIG announcements gonna be happenin'! Small hint...check out my sidebar...(smile...)


  1. oh Maggie...i soooo feel your pain. Hugo slept in until 505 this morning. how come i forget about daylight savings time? and then WHAM.
    im afraid i may need to start having Hugo skip naps to try and right this horrible wrong.

  2. Maggie!! Thank you for my feature!! Button grabbed :)

  3. wow these are amazing...thanks for sharing..

  4. Thats really early! My kids have been waking up early as well...I worked my butt of last night to sand this dresser before it got dark.

    Love the mantel decor by Crafty Scrappy Happy!

  5. Oh my, that is way too early. I can't function well at that hour. I hope they find a good sleep pattern soon. I hate it getting dark so early. But my son likes that it's light out when he gets up for school. He has to be out of the house by 6:30.

  6. Thanks so much Maggie for featuring my oranges! They sure do smell sooooo goooood!
