Thanksgiving Mantel:{Thankful Tree}

Counting our blessings. Thank you for checking back in! We hope we inspired you a little bit with our earlier post of our Thanksgiving Mantel. This is our Thankful Tree. There is something that makes your soul feel so good and so right about writing down on paper leaves what we are thankful for. Does it make those things more real, more tangible, more in the fore front? Yes, yes and yes! We hope visitors stopping by will leave our home and reflect on their lives what they have to be thankful for. Our family has so very much to be thankful for EVERY SINGLE DAY, we don't want to take it for granted or just communicate it one day a year, but everyday. 
We know from whom our blessings flow.

We found our pumpkin branches on clearance at Michael's for $2.49 a piece. Regularly $4.99 each. The container was a thrift store find from last season and the leaves in the container are some we had in our stash.
The "I'm thankful for" leaves are a free download and can be found at HP Creative Studio.
 Simply download, print, cut and write down you blessings and hang them on your tree or use how you wish!

{Don't you just love the deer lurking in the background? Have a hunter in the family.}

Even in the mist of trials and hard times that all of us go through at one time or another, we can still count our blessings and be thankful to God that He is with us, He is in control, He will strengthen us and that He will never give us more than we can endure. Remember, keep it Homespun!
                                              Without wood a fire goes out,
                                             without gossip a quarrel dies down.
                                             Proverbs 26:20
Homespun With Love
