Sunday Sharing Pinterest Party - Week 17

 Welcome everyone to a new week at the

I'm happy you're here. If you are new, welcome!  I hope you'll be a regular.  For the folks who are here and link up week after week, thank you for being so supportive.  In honor of this being week 17 of the party, I'm going to make all of my blog readers "what I am thankful for" on this 17th day of November!

This party is a bit late getting started because this weekend we celebrated my parents' 40th wedding anniversary! I invited them to come to my house on Saturday for an early Thanksgiving dinner -- and instead of a turkey dinner, they got a surprise party!

I'm grateful to have them as a wonderful example of what a good marriage should be.

In keeping with the theme, this week's featured pins are have materials in them that I am thankful for.  A special thank you to featured bloggers My Favorite Kind of CrazyCraft Cravings, and Bakewell Junction!

First, I'm thankful for pumpkin! Getting a pumpkin is a field trip, the pumpkin itself is a decoration, and then something yummy to eat. This pin is a pumpkin muffin - perfect for eating on Thanksgiving morning to fortify yourself for the parades, family gatherings, and football games of the day!

I'm thankful when I can get a little more life out of something.  These mittens are a simple way to upcycle an old sweater.  Given how many gloves and mittens we lose, I will appreciate this pin all winter long!

And finally, I'm thankful for chocolate!  What girl isn't?

Doesn't this Chocolate-Bourbon-Pecan Pie look fantastic?  Yum!

It's time for this week's link up!  Share your favorite pins - Thanksgiving or other themed!

    Thanks for featuring my pumpkin muffins! I sure appreciate your hosting each week!

  4. I'm a bit slow getting on Pinterest, but sounds like a lot of fun! I enjoyed poking around at the pins that were shared and hope to one day join one of your parties! Thanks for hosting!

  5. I don't always know how or where to pin my blog posts on pinterest. Seems self-serving to me and I have a hard time working around that notion.

    I used to as well. Then I started looking at it as just a corkboard of ideas I wanted to safe to go back to. I like when people pin my stuff (who doesn't?) but it took looking at it as "make Pinterest work for me and maybe my stuff will work for someone else in the process" to really not feel all "look at me!!" when pinning.
