Thanksgiving Day

A little father-daughter bonding.

I am just back from our fall show. It was a successful day. I always enjoy setting up and then rearranging as items sell throughout the day. I collect holiday items all year and then cram out some crafts at the last minute. It amazes me what will sell one year and the next no ones even looks at it. It is a challenge to have a good mix so there is something for everyone. Next year Sandra and I hope to have a holiday event out here at the property.

I like to collect kitchen antiques.

Sandra made some pretty things out of burlap and lace.

Last year we were at the Portland Temple for a wedding then back to Pendleton.

We spent our day setting up the reception room for these two.

We transformed the cultural hall into a harvest barn.

One of the pretty tables we set up. This one was for the wedding cupcakes and cheesecake.

We bought some trees 3 years ago and left them potted knowing we would be moving eventually. We watered and fed them in our backyard. When we sold the house we moved them to mom's for safe keeping and she watered them for us all year. Now it is time to get them planted in their new home.

It is a was a nice afternoon with a break in the weather so we took advantage.

We can watch this grow for many years to come, unless the deer and elk eat it this winter :)
