Giving Thanks/ Blog Shop/Abundance for the Letter A

I am sharing a few random photos from our celebration at Thanksgiving Day 2012. I hope you will stop by and visit Beverly and lots of pinkies today. I am very grateful we spent a wonderful phamily day with good food and knowing each of you here. Having an abundance of good people in your life is a true blessing. I decided to incorporate my Alphabe Thursday. Ms. Jenny does an excellent job of making sure we are all A plus each week! My favorite sleeping boy! I sang him to sleep on Wednesday and he clutched my old Valentine Bear! There is nothing more priceless in this life! Abundantly happy with the phamily I have!

Abundance of the heart. Our hearts are full of good friends here. It is a wonderful feeling and a very good thing.
Our three daughters! I adore being mom to them!

We shared a great dinner today. Our middle daughter Rebekah has a beau Zach and he shares a phamily favorite with us each year. He makes a simple dessert called "Snicker Apple Dessert. He cuts up mini snickers with diced apples and mixes it with Cool Whip! Yum! He also shares his phamily Crab Dip with us. It is so tasty and has a nice bite to it!

Andrew, Tarrah and Jayden had dinner with us. They brought three pies, Apple, Cherry and Pumpkin. They were wonderful. This boy is always on a mission. He had the cutest shoes on! Baby Vans! Unsure where they went!

I shared two phamily favorites. My sister-in-law Joyce makes a jell-o dessert with raspberry and strawberry jell-o. The strawberry jell-o is the base. After it is set you frost that layer with sour cream. The raspberry jell-o has frozen strawberries in it. It looks pretty in a clear bundt pan or other jell-o mold.

My dad loved orange jell-o with shredded carrots and pineapple so I made a small dessert in honor of him today. Nick loves plain orange jell-o so I also made several individual cups for him. Hannah and Nick are our two babies!

Noelle's kitchen looked like a page out of Martha Stewart's organized kitchen! She made several dishes including green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, scalloped potatoes and the stuffing my mom use to make for us. She baked a ham and the turkey and we pitched in with two turkey breasts. We also mashed a bunch of potatoes and made home made cranberries, corn, green beans, french style and a phamily favorite. Sour cream, canned whole cranberries and crushed pineapple. They are frozen in cupcake liners and they make a nice addition to to the whole meal.

I am excited about Blog Shop. I have lots more of Princess House Products to sell. So I will show you a few here. My son has a PayPal account we use so if there is anything you would like let me know. The worse part of selling on line is the fact that the shipping has gotten very expensive. So I am trying to make the pricing very reasonable. Let me know if you want anything. I will get it to you as quickly as I can. U.S. shoppers only, sorry.

A set of four collectible Orchard Medley  dessert plates. The lattice and fruit print is very pretty and I own these plates too! The price is $15 with $15 shipping. 

A set of four Princess House retired Veranda "French Horn" dessert plates. They have an 18k gold rim so they are hand washed only. I also have these plates and enjoy them with my phamily during the Christmas season. $15 with $15 shipping.
This is an Orchard Medley Pie Plate. It s a beautiful retired piece and is a deep dish plate. It has the fruit pattern that is very cheerful all around. It is ceramic. It is $16 plus $15 shipping.
This is a Pavillion Cappuccino mug. This mug is HUGE and can be used as a bowl for soup as well as your favorite coffee drinks. $8 and $12 shipping.
A collectible Princess Heritage Cappuccino mug. $9 and $12 shipping
A pair of Fantasia Cappuccino mugs $17, $14 shipping

This decorator bowl is an Optic Wave piece and it is retired. I have several of these in different styles and they are so much fun to decorator with.  $17 with $14 shipping.
A Princess Heritage Candlelamp. A collectible piece and so sweet! $12 with $12 shipping

I wanted to share a few pieces with you and if you are interested let me know. These one of a kind items disappear. I have sold several items from my garage that is brimming with Princess House. I will have several more items next week. An over abundance of things I suppose is another way to say it!

Princess house has changed through the years. The cost to produce hand blown pieces has gotten more expensive and they have stopped producing so much of this product. They seem to have good success with their stainless steel line. While I own many pieces and love using their cookware I am sad to see so many beautiful decorating pieces go . I have lots of candlestick holders and different decorating ideas using different candle holders.

Times change and I appreciate you stopping by. Let me know if you would like any other information on any of these pieces.

I hope you visit Pink Saturday with Beverly and again thank her for all her sharing! She is a generous lady! Then let Jenny know you want to join Alphabe Thursday. I like it because is gives you a good reason to challenge your mind and set your creative genius into motion!

I like the photos of your Phamily, they look like a fun loving group, and the descriptions of the food you all enjoyed. The china you are selling is very pretty, and it is sad to hear they are making less of it.

What amazing wares you have for sale!

I have almost all my glass and china in storage in this much smaller house!

Hopefully we will upsize a bit next year!

Until then, though, there's nowhere to squeeze such beauties in!

Thank you for linking.

You are awesome!
