Happy Turkey Day

Happy Turkey Day!


My forever favorite Thanksgivng art, next year I think I’ll print it and frame it.  Thanks Mr. Perry.

Well the long awaited day is finally here, I love Thanksgiving.  I have been preparing for days ok weeks, but whose keeping track right?

The bird is in the oven, the potatoes are in the crockpot and I’m thankful today for two crockpots because the other one is filled with stuffing.  I got these two recipes over at Kelly’s during what else a blog party.  The table is set, yes I set it yesterday.

I have to say setting the table turned into major stress and drama.  I thought I had an eight piece set of china, nope.  I had to make a quick run to Old Tyme Pottery last night and grab some white plates to set the second table, I don’t like the table but still fussing with it so I’ll show those pictures later.  “The Kids” are going to be at the above table and then Mr. Wonderful, The Baby Girl and I will be at the other table.  I like my placecard holders and I think the kids will get a kick out of them.

Looking at my table the only thing that isn’t a great thrift find is my napkins and silverware.  The centerpiece, the tablecloth, the china and the glasses are from the thrift store.

Once dinner is over we are going to see Blind Side and then I’m coming home to start Christmas decorations.  I have a project in process in the garage, it involves an old window, garland, burlap, ribbon and Christmas cards I hope you stop by tomorrow to see what I come up with.



Did I mention burlap, ribbon and garland…….see you tomorrow!

    Your table looks awesome!! I love the “nuts” (I think) that are inside the candle thingsy. I hate to be so precise but it’s what I do. Have a great dinner and let us know about the movie. We are going to see it this weekend.

    I hope your Thanksgiving was a happy one, and that you have a Happy Tablescape Thursday, too! I’m sure the white plates looked lovely, and I’m willing to be you did something cute to them that jazzed it up. Love the china on this table. It really is perfect for Thanksgiving!
