Wednesday’s Wowzers: All About Turkey Day!

Hello friends!

I received an e-mail the other night that absolutely made my day.  One of my former students sent me the most distinguished letter.  She wrote to say hello, to ask if I remembered her, to share what she remembered about me, and to tell me that I was still her favorite teacher.  I have no idea how this sweet girl found me after so many years.  (To think that this sunshiney girl I knew as a 6-year-old is now in 6th grade makes me feel truly old!)

This is the season of gratitude.  I am so grateful for the 100+ first graders who changed my life over the years.  They taught me so much, but most importantly they really taught me about being a mother.  What happy memories this brought to mind!

Today let's give Thanksgiving its due credit! This edition of Wednesday's Wowzers is 100% decorated to Thanksgiving ideas.

There are oodles of fab ideas on this Thanksgiving table for kids at anna and blue paperie.  Be sure to check out the yummy turkeys using pirouette cookies!  YUM!

I need to get my pumpkins out again!  I adore this mantel! The "Give" and "Thanks" are so clever.  Go check out A Diamond In the Stuff for all of the details.

This "With a Grateful Heart" printable would make a lovely addition to any Thanksgiving table.  Go print your own from Landee See, Landee Do.

That Kierste from Brown Paper Packages is so clever!!  These mini pumpkin place cards are the perfect touch for a Thanksgiving plate!

Love everything about this entire display at The Crafting Chicks!!!  But this thankful banner is darling!  I love all of those embellishments!

Aren't these turkey tins fun?!  Imagine them filled with goodies.  I want one of these cute favors from Burton Avenue!

Holly from 504 Main created this family Thanksgiving frame.  Don't you love the metallic feathers in the corners?!  I am loving metallics this fall!

What are some of your favorite Thanksgiving ideas this year?

And are you READY for Thanksgiving this year??

    I’m in love with that Thanksgiving mantle. I love how the “give” and “thanks” are separate projects! And Holly’s frame is one of my favorite makeovers. 🙂

  3. What a sweet letter! There aren’t many 6th graders that would even think about writing a letter like that.

    I love all your Thanksgiving ideas, especially the mantle and the kids table.

  4. What a sweet girl! My daughter had a phenomenal teacher in 5th grade and I think of her often. Maybe it’s time to write her. 🙂
