"Little Red"

Over the river ... Wishing all of my dears in blog land a most wonderful Thanksgiving! I know those of you outside the US don't celebrate it but maybe you can treat yourself to a slice of pie and think of us yanks ;)

We are busy busy readying the house for the big meal! We have a total of 10 for dinner which for us is exciting! I will be making what my daughter calls *pie marshmallow* the good ole sweet potatoes with tiny marshmallows on top. Baked until they are toasty brown....yum! Along with cranberry sauce (with marmalade) and other various dishes, of course everyone coming will bring a special dish as well. Looks nervously at scale!

What a sweet picture :)
I love to hear about Thanksgiving, it seems to be so important across the pond and we don't really have an equivalent here. Christmas is sooooo commercialised. That a feast day focused on a meal and family seems a lot preferable to me :)

ah thank you :) She does seem sweet in this context (but I neglected to mention the wolf trim on her cape ;)

Is Christmas comercialized over there as well? I thought it was an American affliction, I'm sad to think its that way everywhere!

I think you should start your own Falzon Feast day! :)

Passes a slice of Pumpkin pie...

Happy Thanksgiving weekend! One of the best holidays focused on all the right things.

Hope you had a fabulous meal! Much as I enjoy family feasts, and love to cook as a rule, I start to get rather panicky at the idea of cooking the Christmas dinner.
Your painting is just beautiful - I love her cloak.
