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.

THANKSGIVING~LIFE MIMICS ART

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.

I can’t take credit for the creation of this needlepoint.  I bought it at an estate sale some time ago.

Can you tell I attempted to mimic the needlepoint with the cornucopia on the table?

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The witches, jack-o-lanterns, dark sky, and trick-or-treaters have been replaced by turkeys and leaves for Thanksgiving.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

I am linking to Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper.  I’m giving thanks for my friends in Blogville.  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.

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.

ALL TURKEYS WELCOME

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!)

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.
