  39. Dear Kathryn - Always so much inspiration here for me to add to my list of things to do! Thank you so much for hosting each week. Now that my daughter has emptied my nest after the wedding (see my post) I have some new rooms to "re-dedicate" in my home. Lots of re-decorating and re-purposing of space and what-all ahead. Will keep Blogland posted, to be sure!
    Joy to you this Thanksgiving week!!
