Mosaic Monday #56: A Time for Thanks

Belated Happy Thanksgiving to all of my U.S. friends!

I am writing this from Ohio; today we will celebrate the baptism of a grand-niece, which was the catalyst for a week-long getaway here.  I am so grateful that we have been able to
1) reunite with our old neighborhood and former work colleagues, 2) enjoy time with #1 Daughter and #1 Son and their respective boyfriend/girlfriend,    3) visit with many family members, and 4) stay with my oldest sister, who opened her home to as many as 8 guests, and also hosted Thanksgiving dinner.  In other words, we are blessed!

But it also means my time to write this post is short.  I hope you enjoy the Thanksgiving-themed photos below.

While we are focused on blessings, let me say that I am gratified to have a faithful following of readers.  I didn't start this blog as a popularity contest, but it is deeply satisfying to see readership that is consistently over 130 visits.  Thank you for keeping me company on my adventures.

And for all my dependable Mosaic Monday participants, a special note of thanks to you.  Each time I type another Mosaic Monday #, I am shocked anew to realize we have been on this journey together for over 12 months.  Where did the time go?  I appreciate your consistent contributions, from Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, Thailand, Trinidad and the United States (I hope I did not leave anyone out).

Every week, I look forward to the happenings in your life, photos of nature, quilts and other crafty endeavors, and of course, your creative collages.  You inspire, entertain, encourage, educate and reinforce my faith in humanity around the world.  I hope we can continue to be friends for years to come!   Thank you!

Welcome to Mosaic Monday, a weekly meme where we get together to share our photo mosaics and collages.
Please include at least one photo mosaic/collage in your post.
The link will be open from 1 p.m. Sunday until 11 p.m. Monday (U.S. Mountain time).
Remember to add the link to your Mosaic Monday post and not the one to your blog.
Please link back to this post so that your readers will be able to visit and enjoy more wonderful mosaics; taking the MM blog button from my sidebar is an easy way to link back.
As host I will visit every participant and leave a comment so that you know I stopped by.
Please try and visit as many other blogs as you can, especially those that join in later, so that everyone's creativity can be appreciated fully.
Thank you for joining in today and sharing your mosaics with us.

  4. thanks should be a daily happening!

  5. I've been with Mosaic Monday since 2010 and Mary's time at Little Red House (I wonder where she is now, her imagery was so beautiful). It has certainly been a journey over the years and meeting people from all over the world and peeping into their lives has been a joy. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, but it seems like a lovely tradition, so I wish you all Happy Thanksgiving. We all have much to be grateful for. Have a fabulous week and thank you again for the link up!

  6. I’m grateful to you for hosting! And for your own beautiful posts, from wherever you are hanging out ... they are *always* lovely and I always learn something. Thanksgiving looks wonderful in your pictures ... that pie with whipped cream (or s it whipped cream with pie?) looks like the dessert I ate this very afternoon at our daughters ... we had Thanksgiving there on Thursday and went back today for leftovers! The best possible way to celebrate!

  7. It sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with extended family, Angie! We have much to be thankful for!

  8. You share wonderful posts about where you are, went, enjoyed travelling and celebrating family. Always appreciated. Thank you Angie for your 56th Mosaic Monday, a year of hosting plus.


  9. Dear Angie - Nice to know that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving in the warmth of family getting together. Your Thanksgiving related photos, delicious meal, flowers, and decorations, made my heart warm and into festive mood.

    I’m so happy to be part of Mosaic Monday, though my participation is not so frequent. I’m grateful to you for hosting and letting me experience the lovely hikes and things around you in your blog posts. Wish you joyful days ahead.


  10. Thank you, Angie, for being a gracious host every week for Mosaic Monday. I enjoy your posts and the lovely photos you share with us.
    Thanksgiving is one of the USA holidays that has not reached our shores, more is the pity as it is a wonderful tradition. It's great to read you had a wonderful family time this special time of the year.

  11. The food looks scrumptious! :-)
    Thanks for hosting.

  12. What a wonderful trip! I know you've enjoyed it and had lots of thankful moments! I love taking part in Mosaic Monday every week! It's the highlight of the week! Hugs!

  13. That pie looks delicious! It looks like a wonderful time was spent with family, food and festive decorations.

  14. It's never too late to say Happy Thanksgiving, is it? I hope your trip was wonderful! Thank you for hosting MM - I've not participated recently because I just don't have time to visit everyone.

  15. Lovely post, thanks for sharing your thanksgiving. I always enjoy your posts no matter where you are.

  16. What a wonderful time of year to spend time with family and I did enjoy your photos. Great decorations and food.

  21. Looks like you had a lovely Thanksgiving, Angie.

  22. Hello, it sounds like you had a lovely Thanksgiving with your family in Ohio! The food looks delicious. Wonderful photos and mosaics. I am grateful you took over MM, thank you.

  25. here's to a belated Thanksgiving Angie. I always forget because as you know, it is not a British celebration. Sound like you had a good time. Hope you told them all about the value of not cutting trees until all the berries have gone!

  26. Lovely mosaic of beautiful photos ~ ^_^

    Happy Moments to You,

    ps. would gladly send you the snow ~ would prefer not to get any till after the holidays

  27. It is amazing to me how blogging friendships can turn into real, in-the-flesh friendships, and I have benefitted enormously from that.

  28. Sounds like you had a wonderful Thnksgiving with family. Wishing you happiness, Angie!

  29. Glad that you had a good Thanksgiving. Those where you can visit old friends and family are wonderful.
    You know the posts that are written from the heart are the best and attract people on their own. I don’t think “Social Media influencers” are all that influential. I was at an event last summer where somebody wore a tshirt, in all seriousness, and no sense of irony, that said “Social Media Influencer.”

  30. What lovely photographs you've shared here.
    It certainly looks like you've had a wonderful time with family, special times and special memories, that's what it's all about.
    Giving thanks ...

    All the best Jan
