Audrey from Audrey Garden Lady was first to enter this week with her Bountiful Thanks Charm Bracelet. Made from cute little fruit and veggie lampwork beads and an eclectic assortment of charms, this sweet bracelet is a yummy little gathering of farmers market goods!

Our next festive entry comes from Tina of Adorn Me Jewelry. Tina entered her Nature's Bounty Acorn and Pine Cone earrings. Made with square root beer brown distressed Czech glass beads, green melon beads and antiqued copper pine cone and acorn, each earring is different yet totally compatible and perfect to wear while gathered around the Thanksgiving table!

Entry number three comes from the talented Leslie of Leslie Lee. Leslie entered her note card entitled "The Dilemma," which is a print of her original painting (which hangs in the lobby of an investment firm). Leslie says "Gathering can be a dilemma, especially when we get obsessed with what we gather, or are afraid of losing what we have. The result is sometimes that we miss opportunities that present themselves because we are holding on so tight there is no room to receive anything else!"
Next up we have Miss Julie of Oooooh Shiny! She brings us her set of six quirky and whimsical wine glass/beverage charms. These fun charms are perfect for your next gathering! Julie says: "I made these little scrabble tile wine glass charms for all of my family and friends so we can keep our drinks sorted out during those festive holiday gatherings! They are fun and kooky-- pretty much like all of my family and friends... LOL"

Our fifth entry this week comes from Joe of Prospero's Bookshelf. Joe entered his Comp'ny Comin' Postcard. This postcard from 1975 is by the well-known American folk-primitive painter of rural Southern life, Queena Stovall. According to the website dedicated to her work, "Queena is a Southern memory painter, who often portrayed her black neighbors as well as her own family." The family portrayed in this particular painting is busy getting ready for some important visitors.

Our final entry comes from Stevie of Designs by Stevie J. Stevie entered her Confetti necklace, which was created from a mixture of precious and semi-precious gems. Stevie says "When I got the idea for this necklace, I wanted to make sure I had exactly the right colors and the right beads. You should have seen me gathering all the supplies to put this necklace together. It look me a while and thankfully I had all the beads, so I could create it as I imagined it."
