wonderful bling

 
 I hosted Thanksgiving yesterday and it was a wonderful day sharing our new kitchen with dear friends.  My sons are home from college and one of my sons assembled our new table from CB2.
The light was installed two days ago, just in time for Thanksgiving.
 One of the benefits of hosting are receiving lovely hostess gifts that I call "Wonderful Bling!"  Flowers, an aromatic candle,
 Seated next to my son who is home from University is also very wonderful.
Yes, hard to believe that I have twins in college.
Congrats to Brooke from "Velvet and Linen" - (no. 28 randomly chosen) who won the giveaway.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. Loved that light even before we began the renovation, reminds me of a bright star or a snow ball or a dandelion in spring...I found it at Klaff's nearby.

Really? Oh my goodness, how exciting.
I have one more thing to be grateful for!
Thank you so much Patricia. What a wonderful Thanksgiving gift.

I'm so glad you had such a beautiful, warm and happy Thanksgiving. As I emotionally prepare myself to send my son to college next year, I can understand how happy you must be to have your son home to share Thanksgiving with you. You both are glowing!

Thank you again for this fantastic gift!!!
