The Cottage Style Street Team on etsy is a wonderful group that I am proud to be affiliated with. They are genuinely caring and, did I mention, extremely talented. They tirelessly promote for each other and create some of the happiest art represented on etsy. This post is dedicated to the CSSTeam. I am presenting a sampling of the White Christmas goodness artfully crafted by these ladies...

It has been a tough year for us, three deaths in our family, some surgeries, family illnesses and traumas, but the Lord has been faithful. In amongst the turmoil, there He is, with His steady hand and loving arms. He is there for all of us, we just need to call out to Him and open our hearts. So this Thanksgiving, inspite of it seeming to be one of the worst years of my life, it really has been one of the best. The best because all the hurt that I have felt has drawn me closer to Him - I am most thankful for Jesus. He has surrounded me with a wonderful loving family and caring friends. I am thankful!
I wish you all the best Thanksgiving ever, and though times are tough and it seems there is no answer, there is, He is standing right in front of you, waiting. All your problems will not go away, but you will have a friend, that sticks closer than a brother. Happy Thanksgiving, My Friends - Enjoy your friends and family and be safe!
Some of my favorite Thanksgiving items from Etsy...

I just love vintage pillow cases - beautiful hand embroidery work, to-die-for hand crochet edging and the crisp cool feel of cotton muslin on your cheek! I don't care how much money I spend, I cannot find one equal in quality to the ones from yesterday. All the seams on the inside are french seams, making for a tidy inside. No detail was omitted when these were crafted. Some ladies made their own cases before adding the wonderful details that make these so special. Can you imagine the time that it took - Here are some of my favorites....
White on White - My favorite
