Thanksgiving Mantel-Bargain Decorating with Laurie
 
I want to begin by thanking you for all of the lovely comments on my previous personal post (here). I wasn't sure how that post would be received, but I should have known that my readers are a compassionate and loving group who would not only indulge me in a personal post, but who would embrace that post. Thank you so much.

Since Thanksgiving is a season of abundance, I filled our fireplace mantel with abundance. The needlepoint cornucopia was an estate sale purchase years ago.

My mother's wire cornucopia is filled with abundance.

I previously showed you my velvet pumpkins on our coffee table (here). I moved them to the mantel for Thanksgiving.

I added a painted glass apple and a few faux cloved oranges to the mix of abundance.

On the other end of the mantel, I added the glass painted pear.

The metal sign on the fireplace screen was a gift from a secret pal last year.

Those who read my previous post know that our family has much to give thanks for.
 
I also give thanks for each of you who read what I share and by doing so, encourage and strengthen me.

Beautiful Laurie. I love the gorgeous needlework on the mantel and the touches you add across. In all things give thanks is a great piece hanging on the firescreen.
Your home is lovely and ready for Thanksgiving.
