Favorite things this Thursday

 Today I am joining Katherine at Thursdays Favorite Things Hop

  and  The Thrifty Groove

 I love to thrift store shop like many of you other bloggers.  I found this for 99 cents at the local Hope Thrift.  It is a favorite of mine at Christmas

               The gourd  has been hand decorated, carved, painted or stained ( click to enlarge it )

                            The inside of it has this wonderful carved and painted nativity scene

          I also found this blanket throw which I put just inside my back door so everyone could enjoy it..   I paid $3.00 for it  It is all done in a winter scene of black and the snowmen

  Below is one of my favorite pictures taken of my son and my great granddaughter.. She is such a sweetie.

I am wishing all of you a very happy New Year in 2012 . May it be filled with friends.. family..good health and enough of everything else to make you happy
