Everything looks so delicious and your home looks so peaceful and lovely! When I was young, my mom used to make fudge "from scratch" and I have tried and tried but it always "sugars" on me. I wish she were still around to ask her how to do it.

I have much to be thankful for, as well. Addiction plagued our family, as well (my father and all of his family) and I am extremely grateful that, so far, none of my brothers or nieces and nephews suffer from this disease. I, of course, had no idea that you had suffered from a broken back and chronic pain. I am so happy things are better. My mil accidentally ran over my sil about ten years ago, breaking her back, and we worried she would never walk. She still has some pain but is walking relatively well. You both give me hope that some day my pain will be more manageable. I am especially glad that your son is doing better. I know that sinking feeling so well...when our chicks are having trouble, so is mama! I never imagined my daughter would graduate from high school and she is now working on her MSW. So...Thank God!

Have a wonderful holiday and thank you for all the joy you bring to us!!!

What a beautiful table setting! Your home is lovely. The white theme looks so elegant. As for vintage recipes, I like making treats from my grandma's old cookbooks, especially the christmas cookies.


Happy Thanksgiving, Karla. You remind me to be thankful for the things that really count.

And oh my, how grownup Sugarwings is beginning to look.



Happy Thanksgiving, your home looks awesome as usual. I just love looking at all the old things you have. Have a wonderful holiday.


Your home looks so warm and inviting!!! All those treats looks so yummy!!! Your table looks gorgeous.. Hope you and your family have a wonder Thanksgiving!

Karla...first off Happy Thanksgiving! And I want to tell you this room looks AMAZING!! So cozy and festive! Have a great time with family, friends and mostly FOOD!!

Karla, I don't know how but somehow I'd lost track of you and your sweet Sugarwings! She looks so grown up! So many have gone through pain and heartbreak and hard times this past year. I've been one of the lucky ones, but know that no one is immune and hope for the best everyday. I'm so glad to have found my way back to you. Adding you to my sidebar right now so I'll be around to watch as Sugarwings spreads hers!

Happy Thanksgiving Karla!!

Love the pictures. Sugarwings is growing up too fast.


It's all so pretty and ready for a wonderful day. Hope your Thanksgiving was great!


Wow. Everything is so beautiful. Sugarwings reminds me of my Humbug, in that she likes to help in the kitchen and is a real little lady - so grown up! :O)

I'm glad you had a good Thanksgiving, and have lots to be thankful for. Can I snaffle a piece of pumpkin pie on my way out?! ;o)

Karen Young

Karla, Happy Thanksgiving Looks like you had so much fun cooking with your little helper. The sweet goodies you made look so tasty. Thank you for sharing the recipe with.

Your table is lovely, a beautiful place for you and your family to give thanks.

Hugs Karen

What a warm and welcoming home you have Karla, hope you had a lovely thanks giving. Here in Australia we do not celebrate so much and it seems to have come so commercialised. Best wishes for Christmas and more of the same for the New Year.

Hi Karla - I love all of your white bottle brushes and soothing whites in your decorations. I haven't had a chance to see you again since Miss Frenchie's in April. Thanks for all the inspiration! I wanted to go to the Silver Bella vendor fair but thought the cost to get in was a bit pricey. : (


What a good Thankful List, reminding of what is really truly important to be grateful for.

The pumpkin cheesecake sounded goooooooooood. Especially with fudge to alternate bites.

That silicon tray for making treats looks like a brilliant idea. Perfect finger-sized for snacking.

Your studio looked fabulous! Very clever to use it as a Miss Frenchie prep. Congratulations on getting it all ready.


This is such an eloquent, thought-provoking post, Karla. Beautiful, as beautiful as your space!

Let me say I'm grateful I discovered the Cottage in my blog adventures. It's always a delight.
