Sneaking up toward Winter.....

Winter has come to the Northwoods of Minnesnowtah on Thanksgiving Day. The lakes are beginning to freeze up in the shallow areas, the birds are searching for food. After I took this picture, I cleaned the snow out of my bird feeders and filled them up. A happy celebration for the birds who came the minute I finished filling the feeders!  My husband was busy making the Thanksgiving Turkey when I decided we needed a centerpiece for the table. I took out a small basket that I had made a few years back and decided that I would gather up some decorative nature items to fill the basket. This is what I came up with:

Cattails, Evergreen, Pinecones, Dried wild flowers, Twigs, a Birch stick, and Dried grasses. I thought it turned our pretty.

This is the first year that I did not make my Christmas cards. With my back injury and now a more persistent physical issue which is demanding surgery, I just did not take the time. I am making my holiday gift tags though, so I plan to post them next week. Oh the Holidays are such a busy time. It is important to take care of ourselves so that we can in turn take care of others. Happy Holidays!
