Thanksgiving in the Country

November 26, 2009

Here are a few pictures from Thanksgiving at my sister’s log cabin in the woods. It was warm and cozy and festive inside, and food, stories and laughter filled the house.

Dinner’s ready to serve!

The table is set. The crowd is about ready to gather around.

I love this whimsical folk art dove.

This pie safe was built by hand by my brother-in-law, using wood  from a big tree that he cut. The tin was hand punched by family members, a project that lasted over a period of two years.

The portrait is of my grandparents and uncle.

Here is the website that my niece created on the history of this amazing place.

I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving today enjoyed time with friends and family.

      Eric, that is so humbling to hear. I can only hope to share a little bit of the same love for art and life that I’ve enjoyed through the years. I’m touched that it creates such a positive response from you.
