November 17th, 2007

How are your Thanksgiving preparations going? Mine are coming together very nicely, now that the Oracle Known as Steve is in his rightful place.

  • Cottage Contessa:

  • Christine:

    You’re such a nut. LOL

  • Beth:

    I’m glad to find someone with the same flair for Thanksgiving decorating!

  • Lori Shaffer:

    Now all you’re missing is a nice home-made banner…Your concept of “The Oracle Known as Steve” is one of my favorites! Very funny….

  • Donna Boucher:

    Oh lord.So funny.My decorations are posted today too :o)You are gonna be so jealous!

  • Jenni:

    I love the way the mini pumpkins and orange gourds bring out the auburn in The Oracle Known as Steve’s hair. The hat’s a tad big, but you never know when an oracle’s head might begin to swell, especially if you keep his portrait front and center on your mantle, so a little grow room’s a good thing.

  • Rose:

    That’s hillarious! Did you email a picture to the Oracle?

  • lsaspacey:

    All hail The Oracle!

  • Briget:

    Oh, excellent. You’ve inspired me.(I just found your blog. You are now on my List Of Favorites. Be Afraid).

  • Rechelle:

    Oh dear!

  • Cynthia:

    Oh, I enjoy this blog sooooo much. THank you. Thank you. THank you!

  • Natalie:

    OK, why do YOU have a portrait of The Oracle? Shouldn’t he have it? Or did he give a copy of it to y’all?

  • Rechelle:

    The portrait of the Oracle was painted by one of the Oracle’s sisters – Lois as an excercise in an art class. When I saw the painting I got down on my hands and knees and begged her to give it to me, because I needed it very very badly for my Thanksgiving decor and for my life’s over meaning and spiritual direction.

    I still have my Halloween decorations up!!!!! I am in denial that the xmas season is about to officially begin!!!!

  • ~*~ Jennifer ~*~:

    You should have gone to your sister’s house — she’s got some cute pumpkins there. I like Betty Lou Best.

  • Vee:

    That was so much fun!! Thanks for the grins!!
