Happy Thanksgiving!

Yesterday, Daniel had gotten some beautiful branches at the river to put in our pretty hanging vase by the front door. When he took the old flowers out of it, he found not just one,
or even two,
but three frogs who had made their home in that little space (can you see the third one way down in the vase in the picture below?). AND a lizard, who was too fast for me to snap a picture.
Everyone was given new homes for the time being and the resulting arrangement turned out beautiful!
With that I wish my American friends and family a Happy Thanksgiving and am signing off for the next two weeks while I enjoy family and travel! I wish you all a most wonderful couple of weeks and will see you when we get back!!


  1. Are those frogs real?? They look like they're part of the vase! Hey, frogs are a sign of abundance -- how perfect for Thanksgiving! Wishing you & your traveling companions a fantastic trip!! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Bon voyage friend! So much love and blessings I send to you and Daniel! Have a delightful time.

  3. Wow...beautiful!! I would be so thrilled to find those gorgeous creatures of are so lucky. At one time in my life I was so drawn to frogs..they were companions on my healing journey.and i was creating alot with sound healing...they are so healing and powerful little souls.I have a small sound healing bowl that is green as a i always think of it as gift from the frogy realm.

    thanks for sharing these little beauties..and three? powerful..magical!!

    Happy travels and much joy and love to you bloggy friend!

  5. Liebe Silke,

  6. Have a safe and enjoyable trip. I'm not sure how you celebrate Thanksgiving but I have read about the German Erntedankfest which I believe is a way to give thanks for a successful harvest season...I like that.:) Have fun!

  7. Hallo Silke, der Strauss sieht ja toll aus, ich liebe die warmen Herbstfarben. Hier ist es mittlerweile lausig kalt und fürs Wochenende ist auch bei uns in Franken Schnee angesagt.
    Die 3 Fröschlein müssen sich wohl auch eine neue warme Bleibe suchen,keine Ahnung was Frösche eigentlich im Winter machen*g*

    Liebe Grüße, Anja

  8. Echt witzig mit den kleine Fröschen...

    Die hängende Vase gefällt mir sehr. Eine tolle Idee und wunderbare Kreation.
