Giving Thanks


It is a couple of days early, but that's okay...

I'm in a mood to give thanks, anyway.


to all of you, who have left comments and
sent me private messages

who have encouraged

uplifted

and

rooted for me



and to one very special long-distance friend and mentor...

I thank you.




Happy Early Thanksgiving!




P.S. all images snapped in my lovely friend Marta's former shop
P.P.S. I'm leaning towards stepping out in faith and going for the photography gig!!!

Chateau Chic Boutique said...

Hi Anne! What a lovely post! I LOVE the pics! I meant to comment on your last post and got side-tracked. BUT, I did want to mention that once I read your clarification I thought 'Oh, I totally forgot that part of her post! What an air-head.'
I got so caught up in everyone's comments that I completely forgot that part. I totally got it and get it even more now. But, my "advice" remains the same. Be still and God will reveal.
Super Blessings of Love and Thanksgiving to you and Mr. Twig!

Nora said...

GORGEOUS pix! I want - the suitcases, window & scroll in pic # 1, the dress, hat & form in pic #2, & the lighting in #3 is YUMMY!

Keep listening to that whisper, GF, & you'll be unstoppable. Not sure if you listen to Joyce Meyer or not but yesterday she talked about "stepping into it" with full faith in order to make the waters part...not to your ankles but up to your NECK! Stop dippin yer toe & jump in! *LOL*
♥hugs & luv♥

Amy Kinser said...

Great for you!

There was a specific time in my life where God said very clearly to me.."If everything in life were certain, what would make your faith grow stronger?" Let your faith remain strong as you keep your eyes focused on Him through this whole journey.

LEAN BABY LEAN....

Vicki said...

Yea! You know how I feel. I spoke from the heart in my last two posts. So, that said..Your incredible photography has me swooning over the bucket of brushes and I really want the sheet music that says "I think I'm falling in love" to do a project. LOL ((HUGS)) Happy Thanksgiving!

Crystal said...

Oh Anne, you take some beautiful photos. I have no doubt in your success :) I remember when you first started your blog and look how far you have come. I am glad I found your blog.
Have a joyful and peaceful Thanksgiving.

Whimsey Creations said...

Good for you! Lean a little further - you can do it!

Shelly said...

Okay, First of all, I started posting the other nite and got interrupted and never got to finish my post! So you get it a few days late.....

And I'm excited about your new endeavors and new paths,,BUT I've got to say my dear that the post you left, last Mother's Day time was what drew me close to YOU! Full disclosure, nothing sugar coated,,,,,and I loved you and held you in my heart all the more my dear!

Sometimes it's NOT all rosey and sunny and we'd best, if we are TRUE friends, be there for each other! Trust me, I've always loved your photos, your adventures, your vignettes, but it WAS truly when you bared your heart and soul that I fell in love with you and your blog.

Yeah, I'm a glass half full kind of a gal, but I'd like to think that the friendships I've TRULY made in this blogland would withstand illness, catastrophe, changes,,,,,or what, truly is the point?

I'm sure you've heard versions of this as of late, and I've been too busy to read them all. But you are SO loved by So Many! Warts/Scabs and all!

Change is good and diversity builds character-trust me I know first hand,,,,,and I wish I had less "Character" at times!

Love you Sweetie! And, Shut your mouth about NOT blogging!

Love you to pieces and I wish you the BEST!
(Check out my fun crafty giveaway...I can see YOU in a mini-top hat! But I think one of my badges that I created for Silver Bella may be right up your alley also!)
Big Hugs,
Shell
