creative sparks · Saturday Snapshot



Good morning!  I hope everyone finally came out of that turkey coma…with all the lethargy, etc.  If you had turkey, of course, and if you celebrated Thanksgiving….lol

Today we’re sparking a bit of creativity by showcasing some favorite old (or new) photos taken by family/friends/ourselves.  Hosted by Alyce, At Home With Books, this event helps us share some favorite moments with our friends in the blogosphere.

Okay, taking a photo of pumpkin pie?  Well, I love it a lot…and I got to show some of my quirky holiday decorative ornamentation.

One of my favorite holiday treats


And here’s a photo of granddaughter Aubrey (on the left) showing off a costume for the “First Thanksgiving.”

Now I’m off to see what the rest of you captured!  Have a great day!



  1. Mmm pumpkin pie with a dollop of whipped cream? Delicious! I also like the girls’ costume – I used to LOVE dressing up as a Native when I was younger. I even made myself a bow and arrow out of sticks and some string.


    1. Oh, your costume sounds good…and reminds me, too, of the year when, as a teen, I dressed as Pocahontas with a gunny sack dress and wearing my hair like my granddaughter’s!

      That whipped cream on the pie is low fat…lol. For guilt free eating, ha-ha!

      Thanks for stopping by, Trish.


    1. I didn’t get any turkey until last night, when we went to Marie Callender’s…but I had pumpkin pie (on Thursday, and again last night).

      Thanks for stopping by, Paulita…and I love the costumes, too.


    1. Yes, Leslie, I also love apple pie…especially with a dollop of ice cream!

      For Aubrey to look serious is quite a feat. She’s usually smiling, laughing, and being mischievous. Thanks for stopping by.


  2. We don’t have pumpkin pie in Australia, and I really can’t remember if I’ve ever had any, I’d certainly love to try some. Perhaps I will have to make some one day?


    1. I think pumpkin pie is probably an acquired taste, if you’re not used to it. In the US South, there is another favorite that is similar: sweet potato pie.

      Thanks for stopping by, Louise, and enjoy your weekend.


  3. love the costumes and the decorations.. and also that you are rresponding to each comment.. 🙂 i normally do that but today answered everyone’s comments in one comment of my own;)post-over-eating syndrome, i guess


    1. Oh, thanks for the lovely comments, Lady in Read. I do enjoy the interaction….glad you could stop by! We’ll all recover soon from the over-eating part…just in time to do it again at Christmas…lol


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
