Pine Cones and Planning

Like my new header? I know Thanksgiving isn't here yet, but that's precisely why I have already changed my header. I will be extremely busy for the next week and I'll be celebrating with my family. I have a LONG list of things to do.

My big bag of pine cones is all painted and ready to find a home on a tree we havn't purchased yet ...

I have cleaning to do (who wants to come home to a dirty house?), bills to pay, clutter to organize, a ton of work to do, pies to bake and a million other little things before Thursday.

I'm just now getting ready to start decorating my sea-inspired tree and to search for my shell wreath. I put the wreath away thinking I wouldn't use it again until next summer and now I have no idea where I put it!

I also just listed a snowflake necklace in my shop to match my header! I'd love to make one for myself if I ever find the time.


  1. Hi Melanie,
    Your blog is just beautiful! I'm new to blogger and I have a template that is similar to yours. However, I don't know how to center my header image - currently it is to the left. I noticed that your image in centered in your header. Did you know how I can change mine to be centered like yours?

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi Sandy,
    I wish I knew how to help you, but I usually just upload my header and cross my fingers!

    I think one thing I did differently was to upload my photo including the text. In the past, I had uploaded the photo and had Blogger superimpose the blog title and I had the same centering problem you're having sometimes. If you have photo editing software, maybe you can try adding the blog title yourself?

  3. I'm always putting something away and forgetting where I put it! Can't wait to see you tree! Happy Holidays!

  4. Oh I love the white pinecone. They are just gorgeous. Have a wonderful week and Happy Thanksgiving. Hugs, Marty

  5. Oh it sounds like we will be busying ourselves with some of the same things this week. Don't you hate it when you can't find something you just gotta have now. My house seems small until I'm trying to find something.
    I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving.

  6. I love your header...I noticed it right away! I like the scrolly look of it...very elegant.

    I can't wait to see your tree! Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  7. Your week sounds very similar - Happy Thanksgiving.

  8. love the header!

    Have a great Thanksgiving!!
