MORE THANKSGIVING DECOR

Tgiving decor. 8
 
I love my new sign, which I hung over the ranges in the kitchen.  "In Everything Give Thanks" is painted on an old piece of metal.  It was a gift from a secret pal.

THANKSGIVING MANTEL

Thanksgiving Mantel 7
Last month, Edgar Alan Poe was on our mantel.  Along with the crows and owls, Edgar has moved out, and I’ve decorated the mantel for Thanksgiving.

GIVE THANKS

Our piano looked like this last month.  I posted about it here.

The witches, jack-o-lanterns, dark sky, and trick-or-treaters have been replaced by turkeys and leaves for Thanksgiving.

This lamp was in my childhood bedroom.  The girl does have a sheaf of wheat and a sickle, so I think she’s kind of Fall looking.

I copied the Autumn Days music from my childhood lesson book, and as you can see, my music teacher had a lot of corrections to write on the score.  I obviously wasn’t destined to become a musician.  (I’m still trying to figure out what I am destined to become!)

Y’all know how crafty I’m NOT.  But, Tricia at Simplicity in the South made it so easy for me to make a banner.  She generously gave away the download.  All I had to do was print and cut.  Isn’t it pretty?

Alma, at The Tablescaper still doesn’t have power, but being the dedicated and fabulous blogger that she is, she is doing her linkup this week!  I’m still praying for all of those who were affected by Sandy.  UPDATE REGARDING SOCKS FOR SANDY CAMPAIGN:  The need and the response are so great that the time to send packages has been extended.  Plenty of hats and gloves have been received, but socks and underwear (for both sexes and all sizes) are still needed.  If you haven’t yet participated and would like to send a package, or if you’d like to send another package, please see my post here.

THE GHOSTS AND WITCHES HAVE FLOWN THE HUTCH

You may recall (but if you’re as old as me, you may not recall) that I showed my hutch decorated for Halloween here.  The ghosts and witches have flown the hutch in preparation for Thanksgiving.

The pilgrims have landed in the hutch in place of Halloween goblins.

My great aunt’s painted china and my mother’s “Made in Japan” china bring more Fall color to the hutch.

A turkey hangs from the lamp, in hopes that he will not be discovered in time for Thanksgiving dinner.

We are definitely blessed beyond measure.

I know Alma at The Tablescaper has been without electricity.  If she is able to host, I will link this post to Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper, and I’m also linking to the Better Late than Never Thanksgiving Inspirations party hosted by The Everyday Home.  I’m still saying prayers for all who were affected by Sandy and for those who are assisting in the aftermath.  I am so glad you stopped by to visit me.  laurie

THE PILGRIMS MEET THE INDIANS

Just last week, there were ghosts, witches, rats, and pumpkins on this sideboard in our sunroom, and I showed them to you here.  Today, on the sideboard, the Indians and the Pilgrims are meeting for Thanksgiving dinner.  The sideboard in my sunroom is a busy place.

The turkey is trying to interpret their communications, because he wants to make sure he can wobble away fast enough if they decide it’s going to be a turkey dinner.

On one end of the sideboard, a loan Indian and a loan pilgrim have climbed into the tool box my husband made for me, which I posted about here.

 Miss Pilgrim and Mr. Indian look a little worried about their meeting, and I suspect they are keeping a lot of turkeys between the two of them just in case the meeting doesn’t go well.

A pumpkin and a squirrel stand by, in case someone asks for salt or pepper.

This turkey looks happy, and he’s wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving.  He must already know he has escaped being cooked for Thanksgiving dinner.

I am linking this historic meeting on my sideboard to Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life.  I’m so glad you stopped by to witness history being made on my sideboard.  laurie
