i grew up in a house with norman rockwell books and illustrations. there is something very familiar, and soothing to his paintings, i think. i loved growing up in the country.... where the house was in need of repair... lots of character to it... which.. to me... makes it cozy. it was a little chaotic at times, and messy... but these pictures just always fit in... and felt good. and you know, there's just a way he drew that made me thankful for family... you know? just the things that remind you of what's really important.
this weekend is the Canadian thanksgiving!
and we're so happy to have the hubs home for it! (he was away last year)... so i'm excited to make a thanksgiving meal! ...and though we don't have the farmhouse...yet... i'll be enjoying a handmade, thanksgiving.... with a little norman rockwell ;)
here's wishing you a wonderful weekend! full of family, laughter, and love.
it's a long weekend for us...so i'll be back in this space on tuesday!
do you have any plans for this upcoming weekend? are you also a fan of norman rockwell? i'd love to hear what crafty things you'll be up to this weekend. i've got lots planned for myself! come chat! i'll save a piece of pumpkin pie for you. xo
