Happy Thanksgiving to All!


This day I wish all of you who come here a blessed and happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. I love Thanksgiving. When my girls were younger, I used to tell them that I felt "sorry" for Thanksgiving because it seems to be overlooked or skipped, at least in the retail world. We seem to just go from Halloween to Christmas. This is our table set and ready for those in our family who can be here to join us, although I have to tell you we will be eating on pretty paper plates! The furniture belonged to my husband's grandmother and grandfather and is very old. We love it and have enjoyed it for almost all our married life - 37 years this December!

My decorations are old but I still love them.

I love the candlelight and the colors of autumn.

I love the different shapes of the pumpkins and have always been a fan of Mary Engelbreit.

This is a needleroll that I cross stitched back in 2001. I have patterns for all the seasons and would like to cross stitch the other three one day and make those needlerolls.

My granddaughter loves these little figurines placed here and there and I let her play with them.
Even little things are on the refrigerator. Thanksgiving magnets are difficult to find.

Your table, your Thanksgiving adornments are absolutely lovely. And the furniture is not only of lovely sentimental value, but a timeless treasure, too! Thank you for sharing your life and talents with us. And a Thanksgiving of abundance and bounty from love and togetherness to you and yours! Peace, Ana
