Hello everyone. I can't believe it's already Tuesday, missed you all yesterday. Did you have a good weekend? Mine was nice, Lisa and I had fun Saturday, and Sunday was race day. I love NASCAR. I kinda watched the race while I finished decorating for Thanksgiving. Here are a few pictures and I'll post more during the week.
I think they are going to the first Thanksgiving celebration. Do you agree?
This turkey is on my dinning room table. In just about two weeks we'll be enjoying a delicious Thanksgiving dinner here. I'm already thinking leftovers.....yum. My honey makes the most wonderful turkey sandwich, I love sandwiches and they always taste better when someone else makes it.
I adore vintage postcards. Some of these are post marked 1903. Can you imagine they are over 100 years old.
The living room hutch. I usually pack all the moonstone dishes away now, but this year is different. I just added some seasonal pieces.
I love the colors in these turkey plates. I think they work well with the moonstone. What do you think?

This is my first time sharing my blessing so I'm posting more then one. This way I'll have 21 blessings by Thanksgiving.
1 ~ I'm truly blessed and thankful to be in good health after breast cancer.
2 ~ My husband and our life together is a wonderful blessing, I can't think of spending my life any other way.
3~ My daughter brings great joy to my life, and is a blessing I'll always cherish.
4~ I was blessed with a loving gramma and mom, and have the happiest childhood memories.
5~ My sister in law, who is truly like a sister is a blessing.
For today and its blessings, I owe the world an attitude of gratitude........Clarence E. Hodges

Your blessings are wonderful. You deserve the best, Linda! Love all your decor, as usual! Thanks for popping in to see me today. All is fine. It is really tough for me to post every day and makes the rounds (as I love to do) so I only post once or twice a week! Got that OCD thing going to! Love, Esther

"21 blessings by Thanksgiving". I love that thought. I like the Thanksgiving leftovers too. I think it's that turkey sandwich that calls to me more than the big feast.

I love those turkey plates! Your decorations are wonderful~

Teresa said...

Your holiday decorating is beautiful. Your home always looks so inviting.

Thank you for the knitting comments. I used size 11 needles and cast on 20 stitches for the scarf. I use an entire skein until there is about 1 and 1/2 yards of yarn then I bind off, giving me enough to weave the ends through. They are so cozy.

If you make a scarf please post pictures.

Take care
