around the kitchen table



in a bowl on the chair

small gatherings

Apple pie




knitting again, a few trips to the library, the boys came home, Thanksgiving dinner all together, some musical accompaniment, morning coffee and conversation (much catching up to do), and our first significant snowfall.

  1. Family and home…it doesn’t get much better than that…Knitting, me to..making mittens for the little ones to put in their stockings…I love your knitting basket…
    Your house “feels” warm and comfortable…

      1. And your wonderful post transmits that unique atmosphere of the holiday: people, activities, seasonal fruit, colors, etc! Perfect!!! πŸ™‚

  2. Such a lovely home atmosphere in your photos. So nice for you to have your boys home and that pie by the window looks delicious. Love your basket of knitting too!

  3. Wonderful, down home goodness!! Each picture tells a little story! Love the guys gathered at the table enjoy hot coffee/chocolate, and that snowflake garland!! I love that Susan! Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving – oh yah! The pie in the window (reminds me of a scene at our Connor Prairie settlement).

  4. Susan, these are such lovely images. Were they all taken during the morning over coffee? I ask because the light is so beautifully muted and casts such a soft glow over everything.
    Books, knitting, sons, coffee, Thanksgiving … we are kindred spirits in these things that bring joy.

    1. Actually, they were all taken at different times…I think the light was muted because it was a cloudy day and I tried to use as much natural window light as possible. And yes, we are kindred spirits, Laurie!

  5. I am assuming that is your son. Is he any good on the violin? I used to play tenor sax but my parents always asked me to stop practicing so I never got very good. (See? It’s all my parents’ fault!)

    1. Yes, that’s my son, Andy. I think he’s good but I may be a bit partial πŸ™‚ He is a grad student studying violin performance/arts management. He works hard! Believe me, during the early days when his playing sounded like fingernails on a chalkboard, I was very tempted to ask him to stop!

  6. You are on of those photographers who make me feel like getting my camera – you draw us in to a world that’s very seductive, and the spark catches, and it makes a fire…so happy you are having a warm family time…
