I used the same technique, noted in the link above, but tried some other types of papers, the heavier scrapbook papers really need to be soaked and patience is the key. I used a soft greyish/blue color. I found testers at Home Depot and the paint works lovely in projects. Nice to have other today colors to work with. Taupe velvet ribbon, grey/silver seam binding, and a tuck in of some leftover burlap ribbon, in a warm honey basket. Love the simplicity and the little bit of pumpkin frosting from the glitter.
Although this year it will be a small family dinner, all the favorites will be made, including my grandma's oyster dressing, and Mom's bread dressing/stuffing. I still haven't gotten used to the Southern version with cornbread yet.
My little one really, I mean REALLy, loves the Food channel and slightly obsessesed with the 'cooking lady' or Giada at Home show. Seriously, she asks to watch the DVR shows! LOL :) Not sure if I have a chef in the making. We watched the Thanksgiving show and I want to try this turkey recipe, Cranberry Orange Glazed Turkey, it just sounds refreshing and light. I tend to like the more citrus flavored turkey recipes. We will let you know, she loves to 'help' course the whole kitchen needs a cleaning afterwards between the two of us.
So tell me what is your favorite dish or recipe for Thanksgiving? Love to hear!
It will be a very short week here; loving all this collected vacation time to use up before year end.
May you have a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving
