Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!!...FIT Quickie!!..

I am logging in real fast to post the FIT, will be back later with more.  I am running around like a turkey with my...well, you know;)  Love, Jamie

Ok, I am back.  Wow!  This has been a busy Holiday Season already!  I am hosting the turkey dinner this year and getting everything  together has really has been a job!  I actually had to unpack some of the stuff I needed!  LOL!!  (The invitation to help me unpack is still open, by the way:)  I hope you have a wonderful day with your family and friends.  Be careful in your travels and save room for some punkin pie:)

Love, Jamie

 I have been unpacking some ephemera and thought these mushrooms would be great for Fall.  And they are edible:)

 This is an albumen photo from the civil war era.  These photos are larger than cabinet cards.  Some that I have are 10 by 12.  This photo measures 10 by 6.  I often wonder if during this sitting they had an ambrotype  or tintype image made also.  Their clothing is a wonderful example of late 1850's -1860's fashion.  These six are a brother and his sisters and they all look very serious:)  I love the names on the back of the photo.  You know it always tickles me to find identification on my photos.

 Mother, Molan, Monroe, Martha, Manda and Maria:)  At first I thought the numbers showed where they were sitting.  But I now believe they are to show their birth order from oldest to youngest.  That Martha is a stern looking Gal is she not?  LOL!!

 These two FITS are are from a series of German bird prints.  I can never seem to pass up the blue eggs.  I love the blue eggs the best:)

Quotes for Today:

"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures."
~Thornton Wilder

"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving."
~W.T. Purkiser

"May your stuffing be tasty
  May your turkey plump,
  May your potatoes and gravy
  Have nary a lump.
  May your yams be delicious
  And your pies take the prize,
  And may your Thanksgiving dinner
  Stay off your thighs!"
