Thanksgiving Thankfuls Board
Hi there! My name is Carissa Fox. I’m the voice behind the blog brown eyed fox, where I share my thoughts, our home, my love of things simple. And I have to say, I couldn’t be more thrilled to get to guest post here at BHG.
When the air turns crisp and I start to grab for my heavy cardigans, I know the time is coming. We get to start our “thankfuls” tradition.
Cut up paper, colored pencils, and wooden clips await. Every day of November we each jot down a “thankful” for that day.
It might be…
That first sip of coffee in the morning…
The smell of pancakes on the griddle…
The protective roof over our heads.
Some days it’s a single… and others… we might want to jot down lots.
Of course, being grateful is something we wear with us daily — or should.
Seeing and experiencing gifts along the way.
This just takes it a step further.
The purposeful act of actually writing them down has not only become a fun tradition we all look forward to, but a wonderful way of expressing and sharing our thankful thoughts.
For this board I found an open vintage frame, grabbed a roll of garden gate from the home improvement store, then cut the gate/wire to dimensions of the frame and simply nailed it into place on the back side of frame. Voilà. All ready for “thankfuls” or the many other great uses.
How about an advent calendar? Where treats or messages wait in anticipation.
Have a little artist at home? It’s a neat way to let them showcase their latest creations.
Pin up all those pretty holiday cards that arrive in the mail.
Use it as a reminder and events bulletin board.
Lightweight and easy to move around, you’re sure to find a spot and a use.
