Turkey Day

Artwork by Will - 5 years old.

This year we hosted Thanksgiving dinner for 11 including our family of 6 with 5 neighbors/friends. I reused Halloween pumpkins for our Thanksgiving decor. Ornamental cabbage surrounds more left over pumpkins. I found a succulent wreath on sale at Lowe's. Orange tulips for the guest bathroom.Our mantel was simply decorated with candles and fruit. This was our first large gathering at the farm table my husband made. I bought bouquets of fresh flowers at Trader Joe's and arranged them in sections for our centerpiece. Pears and grapes were washed and added to the flower arrangement for guests to enjoy as they awaited the main course.The glass hens I purchased several years ago at Target served salad to each guest. The coffee mugs and matching bread/dessert plates were purchased at Home Goods. The ivory metal lace chargers were bought at an antique shop several years ago. Now that Turkey Day is over it's time to prepare for Christmas! Thanks for visiting.

Love a Bargain!

Going to yard sales is never planned at our house. Usually, on a Saturday morning while brushing my teeth, my husband calls out from the shower, "Want to go garage sale-ing? I rarely decline. One morning, we found this old white wicker chair for $5. Better yet, there were two! I added the cushions. This vintage pink glass lamp cost $5. I love that it lights up on the bottom, too! This chippey blue table frame was the best bargain because it was FREE. Another project waiting on the back burner. I bought this vintage metal ice cream cone stand for $2. I just need some ice cream! That wraps up all my bargains. . . until next Saturday. Thanks for stopping by!
