Honoring Veterans Day and Thanksgiving
Front Porch Appeal Newsletter - Issue #87
A heartfelt appreciation to all of our VeteransIt's appropriate that Veteran's Day falls close to Thanksgiving. As ours is a military family, we appreciate and honor all who've served and to their families who also sacrificed much. Please enjoy our article about the importance of Veterans Day. Thank you!

Thanksgiving Is Nearly Here
From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving to our USA friends. This year we will be celebrating with our family (all 7 grandchildren) at a beautiful state park - building family memories and enjoying the company of each other. We'd love to hear what traditions you have for Thanksgiving.
As Thanksgiving approaches (whether we are ready or not), a nicely decorated front porch is always a welcome sight for family and friends alike.
Whether its a simple wreath on the front door or an amazing array of holiday decor, Mary and I have some ideas you can use on your porch this season.
In addition, we've included a few very popular holiday projects that are fun and easy to make for your porch or yard.

Blue birdbath becomes a focal point (the birds won't mind!)The birds did not enjoy our cobalt blue birdbath for splashing so we have employed it as a year 'round decoration on our porch. Isn't it a pretty scene for this time of year?
May you and yours enjoy a tranquil Thanksgiving
Take a moment to enjoy the day on your porchIf your weather permits, of course. Aa we live in the south, we may have more porch days in the autumn than some of you may have. No matter what, take a little time for yourself to simply put your feet up and think of your blessings. It's food for the soul.
