Pleasing The Senses

As we are are distributing candy to masked little robbers our thoughts will be thinking toward the next event in the next coming days... First will be the celebration of Thanksgiving, another wonderful time spend sharing with family and friends... Making these a time of joy, is very important... Our thoughts seem to want to think about holidays of our childhood or early days of raising our families... Not saying we have to go back to the days of no electricity to create a old fashion holiday season... What is pleasing to the eye? Candy canes, popcorn strands, home-made gingerbread cookies.. Just precious little cookie cutters hung on a tree or used as a napkin ring can be very sweet. The most favorite sound of all to look forward to however as we give thanks is the sound of laughter... Four of the senses always seem to come into play when you think of the holidays season... Pleasing to the eye.... Pleasing to the ear..... Pleasing to the nose...and pleasing to the taste..... Have you starting your planning or decorating yet? I am working on vignettes in different areas of my home.... My fireplace is now done and a antique table in the corner of my living room completed and as soon as I finish this post I want to do my antique pie safe and the ledge in my front entrance.... and possibly a shelf in my living room... We will be leaving later this afternoon to attend the Tinora girls volleyball tournament that take place in Kalida.... we will have our supper out and cheer on our girls......

We have a tradition of making gingerbread men every year. Some for gifts and some to eat. One year I put popcorn chains and gingerbread men on the tree (after staying up half the night doing it)only to find the next morning our two cats had eaten most of the decorations!
