The Thanksgiving Tablecloth: Everyone writes 5 things they’re greatful for with a sharpie

The Thanksgiving Tablecloth: Everyone writes 5 things they're greatful for with a sharpie countrybestblog.com

I love being able to create traditions within our little family…is having 3 kids still considered little??… anyways it’s just super fun and even more rewarding.

As it’s Thanksgiving weekend up here in Canada I had to whip out our special Thanksgiving Tablecloth. I’ve already said how it works in the title, but I’m ok with repeating myself because I have the ‘Running-on-NO-sleep’ card in my hand having just had Cowkid 3.

You get a white tablecloth. Sharpie on “THANKSGIVING” in the centre. Then every year each member of the family sharpies 5 things they’re greatful for onto it. 

Of course if it’s babies first Thanksgiving a handprint is warranted. We put their hand on an ink pad then onto the tablecloth and sharpie trace it – as you can see below:

It requires 2 adults to accomplish this awkward task of getting their handprint… it’s a tricky business with wiggly new baby fingers.

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all Canadians. Though there is much to be disheartened over, I hope we can take the time this weekend to see the good, the true, and the beautiful  in our lives.

May your home be blessed with family. Your heart be blessed with health. And your belly be blessed with pumpkin pie.

Signed,
The Cowgirl

Shabby Chic Turquoise Dresser Transformation

I did this shabby chic turquoise dresser up over a year ago… I think. Honestly, I can’t remember events between 1 year and 3 years ago in their actual happenings. Can you tell I’ve had my babies close together?!

It should probably go without saying, but this dresser was a cheap garage sale find I snagged. It was so fun to transform it! Mostly because using chalk paint was easy peasy awesome. No sanding was needed prior and it only took one coat! The colour is acutally a lot darker in person. I love having it as our TV stand. I also love randomly scuffing it up with sand paper here and there once it was all dried. I take great satisfaction in roughing things up shabby chic style. The wood/brass looking hardwear was spray painted black and put back on.

It’s one of my favorite pieces of furniture. Now to just convince The Cowboy that we should have even MORE turquoise in our house…
