Wishing all of my US friends and followers a
I'm coming to you with a new challenge from
I love the simplicity of this photo from our host
this week, Sarah Anderson.
I love the fact that not only is she from the UK,
but so is this week's sponsor for the challenge,
The significance, of course, is that Thanksgiving
is non-existent in the UK and yet both Sarah's
color scheme and our sponsor's stamps
(which were generously provided to our DT)
both conjoured up thoughts of this US holiday for me.
I love this sentiment...
This year our family, immediate and extended, is going through
many changes that are just not conducive to celebrating our
holidays the way we have for over 25 years.
It toughest on the young adults, namely my children and
my dear nieces and nephews.
A house full of family numbering upwards of 30....
talk about memories. That is why this sentiment is
so poignant to me.
So this season, I am spending time encouraging
my children to begin trying new traditions
of their own. It will take time, but I know it can be done.
On another note of mixed emotions...
The Play Date Cafe Design Team are saying
goodbye to two girls who have brought a
whole bunch of good things to our challenge.
Lisa and Sue are moving on to some new
creative adventures and I wish them
all the best. We were fortunate to have had
them extend their stay with us to a full 9 months,
so I can't be stingy!
But I do know that things will not be
the same without them.
Please make sure you stop by The Cafe,
check out the inspiration pieces from our DT
and make sure you leave some love
for Lisa and Sue.
