and my friend Tessa made one on her blog: http://tessabellasblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/20130927-204450.jpgDSCF8257

I had thought of calling my blog “it used to be plain white card stock!”

Harvest Thanks

We live in a farming community, although we do not farm ourselves. Everyone is thankful when the harvest gets finished before the snow flies. The ground is white today but hopefully it won’t stay
