My grandmother gave me a silver charm for my charm bracelet when I was a little girl.

It came from a little store in her town called The Jewel Box. It was a …

Treasured Thanksgiving Memories

Phyllis Lifestyle 19 Comments

Thanksgiving week has always been a favorite of mine. When I was a schoolgirl many, many years ago, I remember with great fondness the pine cone turkeys we would all make. This signified that a wonderful season was ahead. Then the Pilgrim hats would be made next, and the Thanksgiving season was officially underway. We rode to our grandparents’ homes …
