A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

The holidays mean so much to so many, but this picture of our grand daughter steals my heart. We were in the process of  trimming  the tree, when we had a sleep over and some extra help.
Our littlest angel, what a doll baby and doing such a great job too.

Just look at that face, yep, she's an angel!

Getting the table dressed and ready for one of my favorite holidays. I would like to take this time to wish all of you and your families a wonderful, safe and Happy Thanksgiving Holiday!

Many years ago my mother in law gave this Pilgrim set to me and I love to put it out each year. They fill the house with so many wonderful and loving memories of family and being together.

Each doll was made by hand and each one is hand painted and sculpted.

All the clothes are sewn by hand as well.

I cherish the memory of things past down from the heart.

From my family to yours, my wish is may you have peace, plenty of food and warm this holiday season.

This week I have been very busy working in my studio, so once again my pinkie shares are going to be my work. I hope you don't tire of seeing the things I create. My garden is not producing anything exciting and so these will have to do.
A strawberry cake with two petite fours.....yep, they are fake, but don't they look good enough to eat?

Just look at that yummy top. Handmade paper roses, pansies, faux pearls and some rhinestones too.

Three sweet mini snowpeople in a vintage jello mold. These can also be used as ornaments, as they have ribbon hangers. Perfect teachers or hostess gift.

A trio of very sweet pink gingerbread ornies. These are large and measure approx. 6" in length.

So cute and look good enough to eat, sugared with german glass glitter too! Yummy Yum Yum.....

When I was a child, one of my favorite stories was "The Three Little Kittens" so of course a set of mini mittens reminds me of that story.....only I didn't loss any mittens....HA!

These too, are sugared and just as cute as can be.

Last but certainly not least is another beautiful stocking. I am happy to say that most have sold, but this beautiful lady is available.

All this and more can be found on my website, Someplace In Thyme.
I would love to take a moment to tell all of you how much I appreciate your comments and your blogger friendships. This time of year seems to be a perfect time for reflection on our lives and how we affect those in our lives. You have all blessed me beyond belief and I appreciate you more than you could know. My wish is that each and everyone of you have a safe, loving and wonderful Thanksgiving. Be warm and be happy and most of all, HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!!!
Thank you Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for all you do to make this possible. I appreciate you so much and all your hard work. You can find all the participants for this week's Pink Saturday on Beverly's blog, so please go over and offer your lovely comments to as many posts as possible.

I am  honored to be participating in Lynn from The Vintage Nest's "GIVE THANKS PARTY."
Please join me and others here to give our thanks for all that we hold dear.
I am thankful that I was born into a family that loved and supported one another, lived by example and respect for all life. I come from a family of military. Grandfather, father, father in law, brother in law, nephew and husband, all served our great country. I am grateful to all that serve to keep us safe and most of all free. I am proud to be an American.
I am humbled by my husband of 38 wonderful years. That someone would and could love me so dearly, share a life together and raise two perfect children.
I am grateful for family, and feel so very blessed to have our children, their spouses and our grandchildren close by. My heart is full with the love of my mother and mother in law.
I am blessed by my friends, both far and near. I never take for granted, my loyal customers and my blogging buddies. They bless me everyday.
On a lighter note, I have been quoted as saying, "I am grateful to be able to get out of bed on my own, breath on my own and know my name!!"
This is a season of reflection, of thinking about all the people we hold dear to our hearts, both living and past. I hope that you too, will stop and take notice of all that you have been given, all that you hold dear.
Please visit Lynn's blog for more inspirational stories, and lets give thanks, this day.
THANK YOU Lynn for bringing us altogether to share from our hearts.

It's unbelievable to me what is growing in my garden now. Who would think you would have roses and other blooms in November?

Living in the desert takes some getting used to, and after 7 years, we still don't "get it." Fall color doesn't hit until December and by then, it doesn't matter much. Fall is long over and we are into winter......strange.

Now that the summer heat is gone, we are left with day time temps in the 70's while the nights are in the 40's, so the garden has come back to life.

Roses are blooming again and there is lots of life to be seen.

Please don't get me wrong, my garden doesn't look anywhere near as nice as it does in spring, but while some places are having snow, I will take this!! HA!

Even my bougainvillea are blooming this time of year, although I think they love the heat and show it with blooms all year long.

How about a little bit of Texas sage.....smells good too.

I wish you were here to enjoy this with me, you could sit here in this lovely rocker.

Isn't this pillow just beautiful. I bought this on ebay a few years back from a very talented seller that sadly is no longer selling. I miss her.......even tho I create pillows for the cottage industry, I love to purchase from others in the same venue...

My hibiscus say thank you for visiting this week and leaving such nice comments. I want to thank Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for once again bringing us all together for a little pinkie fun. You can find the list of pink participants on Beverly's blog. I hope you enjoyed your tour of my little part of the world and now I am off to visit as many wonderful blogging buddies as I can.

A very good friend of mine just sent me a link to fight breast cancer. I had another post to share with you today, but this was just to good to pass up. Please take a minute and watch this video.
About 136 former cheerleaders got together to do a dance routine to benefit "Susan G. Komen for the Cure" (Breast Cancer). Each time someone views the video, United Healthcare will make a $.10 donation to the Komen organization. Their goal is to get a million hits, which will lead to $100K raised. (Hope this is true).


Happy Pink Saturday to all my pinkie friends and to my friends that I have yet to meet. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend.
Thank you Ms. Beverly for bringing us all together for another wonderful weekend. I know you work very hard to make this possible and I appreciate it. You can find the list of pinkie partcipants on Beverly's blog at How Sweet The Sound.
