Thanksgiving Day

We spent Thanksgiving Day in PA at my Aunt and Uncle’s home. Believe it or not, it was nice to get out of the snow for a little while (it’s too early for snow here)! When I walked in to their house this painting caught my eyeballs:


In which I asked my Uncle “where’d you get the painting of Cooperstown?” And his response? “You are the first person from New York to recognize this is Cooperstown!” It is painted by their next door neighbor who used to live in New York:

(I don’t remember her first name).

She also painted this one, which is across the street in Cooperstown from the one above:


Later I saw this old plate hanging which came from my Grandmother’s home.  This plate is of the South Onondaga Methodist Church:

This is the church as it looked in April of this year:

I also love this Grandma Moses counted cross stitch piece that my Aunt stitched:

We were outside Thanksgiving evening looking at the landscape and I noticed the sunset was going to be gorgeous:






Ohhhh, ahhhh. . .

I also loved seeing my Grandmother’s needlework around my Aunt’s home:


Thanks to my Aunt and Uncle for the fond memories!

    What a wonderful trip. That last sunset picture was stunning! The needlework was impressive, too. Awesome!

    I love the sunset photos. Very pretty. I used to go to many estate and household sales and look for the old needlework items. But now days dealers get first crack at everything the day before the sales and very little good stuff is left. I think the paintings are wonderful. I’m glad you enjoyed your Thanksgiving trip.

    Those paintings are lovely Pam. Almost as lovely as the sunset you captured so very beautifully. Sunsets can never be captured the way we see them as it’s such a fleeting moment in time. Glad you all had such a good day. :c)

    What a lovely home. I know a family in Cooperstown.

    That sunset sequence is wonderful!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Pam!

    Liza – It was, thanks.
    Linda – Thank you! I never get to see the sunrise or sunset at my home so this was a treat!
    Jayne – They are, and thank you! I agree, it’s hard to capture the sky as I see it.
    Mary – it is, I’m very happy for my Aunt & Uncle. Happy Thanksgiving Mary!
