"Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece" ~ Fall Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!

(Today, the 17th, is the November Blog Hop for 
"Just A Few Friends" on Facebook, by Elsa)

I have been invited to join a wonderful group of artists led by Elsa at 
"Just A Few Designs", called "Just a Few Friends" on Facebook!!

This group is made up of artists who want to dedicate a project or more a month. This is mainly to keep up mojo and lend support and encouragement through the art of crafting!

I am the newest added "cub" to this "den" of artists!
(You can see a list of everyone in the group over on the left 
side of my blog under the "Roar With Pride" banner! )
So, today is my first blog hop with the "Den of Friends".

Weather you're coming over from Yvette's blog or just dropping by,
 I thank you for coming over! 
But you may want to start from over at Elsa's blog 
then follow the line up from there!

Here's the list!! I'm at the end...:)

then me!:)

Here is my project for the month of November which was to create a Fall Home Decor piece! So, I created a Thanksgiving Table centerpiece with some cork trivets from IKEA my husband picked up for me while he was on a trip! He's so sweet, he said he thought I would like them and maybe make something out of them....which I did see once before and almost got, but then I put them back, trying to be frugal.....I'm glad he grabbed them for me, now I don't feel so "spendy"...not that they were, but you get what I'm saying!

I made some handmade Fall Mum Flowers in my last post, here they are again...
Ah, they're so pretty...I hope you like these! 
I did make a video tutorial for them you can watch HERE! :)

So, here is my centerpiece!
(I have also made these burlap rose buds 
I sell here on my blog, you could find them at this link)

Here's my video tutorial on how I put it together, enjoy....

  I hope you like this!! It is a great feeling when you make something beautiful for your family....and on a special day of Thanksgiving! I can't wait to put a little tea light in it and place it on our table for our traditional 
Thanksgiving dinner....just around the corner!

I do pray you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with your friends and family this season! Sending you hugs today!

    This centerpiece is just gorgeous! We celebrate Thanksgiving twice - once with my family (about 30 of us) on the Sunday before Thanksgiving (tomorrow) and then on Thanksgiving day with my hubby's family (about 11 of us). I never really do any decorating for Thanksgiving or fall, but this hop is making me want to! I love this centerpiece... I don't think I will get one made before tomorrow as I am still up to my eyeballs in pie baking (I took a break for this hop!), but maybe by Thursday? Thanks for the inspiration!! I LOVE THOSE MUMS!
