I’ve decorated the kitchen china cabinet with vintage Thanksgiving cards and a couple of Fall plates.

When I showed you my buffet in the sunroom last month, it was decorated with spooks and goblins. A few little changes, and it has morphed it into a Thanksgiving vignette.

During the Halloween season, this table was a “fortune teller’s” table. You can see that post here. The fortune teller has been banished and cornucopias have appeared for the Thanksgiving season.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see me. laurie

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The witches, jack-o-lanterns, dark sky, and trick-or-treaters have been replaced by turkeys and leaves for Thanksgiving.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.
I am linking to Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper. I’m giving thanks for my friends in Blogville. laurie

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.
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.
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

Of course, the pilgrims were met by the Indians.
(Christine, there is the rest of my duck knife-rest set like yours.)
And the Pilgrims and the Indians met a lot of turkeys (Of course, not many turkeys survived the meeting).
And they discovered the bounty of the land.
(Obviously, they discovered a time machine that allowed them a glimpse of the horse-drawn cart filled with pumpkins!)

Marty has caused a huge problem at my house. The first time she hosted a cloche party, I had to use my cake dome and cheese dome as faux cloches, so I could join in the party fun. After that I started looking for cloches. Of course, being a bargain hunter, I couldn’t buy one unless it was a great price. For a long time, I had one cloche. Then I started finding them at great prices. At that point, my mind was set on grabbing any cloche that was a reasonable price, so cloches came home with me … then more cloches came home with me. I didn’t stop to think that glass cloches are not an easy thing to store when not in use. So now, everything in my house is covered in a cloche. I just walk around my house, with cloche in hand, until I find something that is short enough and narrow enough to plop a cloche over it. I am not buying any more cloches (unless I get some absolutely amazing bargain – like maybe free!)
You might remember that my table top villagers had their Halloween sign out last month. They are now welcoming all turkeys. I’m thinking that means that if you are a turkey, and you wobble into this village, you’ll probably wind up as Thanksgiving dinner.
Pecans from my neighbor’s tree (if they fall in my yard, they are mine, right?) I just love this old hand-made game card box.
I’m linking this post to Table Top Tuesday, hosted by the Table Top Queen, Marty, at A Stroll Thru Life
and Before and After, hosted by the Queen of Furniture Painting, Kim, at Savvy Southern Style.
It’s so kind of you to stop by for a visit. Y’all come back now, ya hear? laurie
