Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow, Glitterinas.
My list of things to be thankful for
grows longer each year!

I hope you have safely arrived at your destination, if you are traveling.
I hope you have completed all your
grocery store runs, if you are hosting and cooking!

I couldn't resist giving the candles a test light!
Last but not least, the name cards....
