FINALLY!!!! It's a 'Happy Thanksgiving' Drawing

Finally! After a long absence, it's time for another drawing and give-away here on my blog. I'll be drawing the winner on November 16, so you have several days to enter to win this charming pendant on a silk ribbon. The lampwork bead is a beauty by Melanie Moertel hung from a hand dyed silk ribbon and string in the most scrumptious colors! The sterling slider ensures you can wear this at your favorite length and I think you'll like it...soooooo.....

here are the rules: November being the month of thanks, can I just say thanks ffor stopping by now and then! You'll have to add your own expressions of gratitude to be entered into the drawing. Just post a comment with three things you are thankful for, and I'll put your name in the drawing---that's all! My listis soooo long, I'm sure three isn't too many to ask you to share, right? Post early, post often...count your blessings and think happy thoughts, for a place in the drawing on Monday, November 16!!!
Now, make like a pilgrim and give thanks!

Rickie, what a beautiful necklace! I too have a lot to be thankful for. I'm thankful for my family above all. I'm thankful that in this economy we have a beautiful home to come "home" to every day, and I'm thankful that everyone is maintaining good health so far this season with everything going on out there! :)

I am thankful for my prayers being answered, whether they were yes, no, or wait.

I am thankful that I can see and hear and smell, and taste and feel. I love art so much and I can't imagine not being able to see it.

I am thankful for my family. I lost my father this year, and we have had to readjust quite a bit to fit into our new roles. But I am thankful that we have been able to.
