The Week before Thanksgiving,
I limp around real strange.
Huddle in the corner,
As though I have the mange.
All the other turkeys,
Just gobble, gobble on.
I'm silent, and I act
As if my gobbler's gone. Everyone is thankful
On Thanksgiving Day.
Friday it's forgotten.
You all go on your way.
I know what thankful is
So listen when I say.
"It's great to be a turkey,
After Thanksgiving Day."

Pink! Pink! Pink!  I am mad for the color pink these days! I love a particular shade that has more tones of blue then peach….a shade that is hot and shocking! I love it paired with deep scarlet and bright tangerine.  I’ve made several gypsy bags and steampunk necklaces in that exact color combination.

I've paired some new hot pink pillows with my standard forest green especially for the holidays,  I've bought yards and yards of  pink ribbon to wrap my Christmas gifts,  I've  found a pink cloth for my dining room table, and today I ordered a  fabulous shocking pink wool pea coat!

Pink makes me feel so happy!
