I've seen this somewhere else and I can't remember if I've posted it before...sorry.  Anyway, this one is from Gwenny Penny and I think it is such a smart way to display your fun Christmas cards you get from friends. Every year I am wishing I had something like this. :)

Thankful leaves

Great idea to be prepared for thankful thoughts to turn into a tree or garland. From Goose and Binky


My house is greatly in need of Thanksgiving decor and I was desperate to make something this weekend .So I grabbed what I had on hand: a piece of wood, cardstock, paint, and modge podge and made this very simple Thanksgiving sign.  The font that I ended up using from my list in the previous post was Fleur Corner Caps. It's nothing special, but it add's a little to the top of my entertainment center.
