LOVE the master bedroom! Nice colors and just so pretty.
Lovely living room with a more "up north" theme.
Dining room also has a "up north" theme with lots of white. Very unique!
This is the porch, where you enter the home. My photos aren't in order! LOL! Remember, this is Not my home. It's a real home decorated for the season that people can tour! It's located in Minneapolis, MN. It is a home that the Bachman family owns.
I had a nice, quiet Thanksgiving. Daughter and future SIL came over for soup around 5 last night. We looked at the ads and they went out last night to make a couple of purchases!
I didn't go to any stores today. I did go to 2 estate sales :) Tomorrow is card making day with 2 friends. It's my plan to make all my Christmas cards! I plan on doing my Christmas shopping the first week in December! I do have a couple of gifts and a few stocking stuffers. Is anyone DONE with their shopping???
I hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving. I put up my Christmas tree and decor and will share that in the next post. I didn't put up a lot this year!
It's COLD and there is a light dusting of snow. It was 60 yesterday and by evening around 30...yup, only in Minnesota!

Sandy has a little gnome named Cedric who is a traveling gnome and he came to my home for a little visit last week. He was a "huge" helper! He enjoyed making cards with me and posing with the little pilgrim candles. He really likes "small" folks! Thank you, Sandy for allowing Cedric to visit Minnesota!
Looks like just hubby and I for Thanksgiving as the "kids" are going to the other Mom's. Not sure if I'm cooking a turkey or not. Maybe soup and bread for our meal. I did that a couple years ago and it was so relaxing!
Tomorrow starts the sale at Auntie M's in Hopkins. There are 4 or 5 shops that are all having a discount at their shops unless the item is firm! I'll be at The Vintage Cottage in Chaska if you want to visit those shops! Lots of Christmas items!
Have a great weekend! Our weather is awesome for November! Thankful!

My simple Thanksgiving mantle! I am very Thankful for all that God has graciously given to me. I just wanted it to be very easy and simple this year. BUT, lookout for my Christmas Mantle!!!
BUT, here are the houses I made. My partner received the one in the middle! The blue one I am keeping for myself and the other one may go to my Mom...The roof tops come off. I should have taken more pics...I made them simple like the vintage ones.
So...not sure about Thanksgiving...hubby mentioned going out to a restaurant that day! HMM...I mentioned working at a shelter serving meals...he said no...we don't always agree!
Looks like we are going to a couple estate sales in the morning! One is another "PACKED & Digger sale" and it sure looks like it in the photos. I spied a wood organizer that would hold card stock. I'm hoping to score that!
Next week will fly by...Monday my Mom and I are going to the Bachman Idea house and out for lunch! FUN!! Tuesday is my duty day at Auntie M's. Wednesday is my " paid work" day job. Thursday is BSF, Grandgirl after school, plus haircut and color. I WAS going to let my hair go grey...guess not!! Friday is my monthly "work" paid job at the Vintage Cottage. Saturday I'm helping out at Auntie M's because it's the store wide sale, which starts on Friday! I also must bring LOTS of stuff to the booth before Friday! LOL, I'm tired already!
I also want to make some Thanksgiving cards....maybe I can do those this weekend...guess I better get going!
