whet your whistle wednesday: issue four

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and to be honest it isn’t my favorite holiday. I love the dinner and I am thankful for so many things but I would rather move on to Christmas.  I have my radio set and ready for when the local station switches over to holiday music. Thanksgiving certainly deserves it due but after that this post is on to Christmas. 
Forty years ago A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving premiered and it is still going strong. A small idea became the magic to make it happen and the perfect recipe.
And now lets head on to Christmas…

Then my mom got her own tree in the entry way and she got to decorate it however she fancied. I have a hankering to get a little artificial tree that could be a place for cute kitchen themed ornaments.
Last year I turned the front doors into gifts. For Halloween I made it into a mummy and for Christmas this year I really want to do a take on this snowman
I always love the look of pastel holiday decorations like this felt garland. I hope I can find the right spot for them in our house this year.
