Thankful


We have come a long long way since the pilgrims arrived and learned from the indians how to plant and  fish for food! We have so much to be thankful for, our lives are so much easier! I've been counting my many blessings and enjoyed decorating for Thanksgiving. Here are our first pilgrim couple that I found at Garden Supply in Cary and was fortunate to get at 40% off!


Here's the entire mantel where the pilgrims proudly stand. I love the leaves and rich warm hues of autumn!


If you don't look carefully, you will miss this little bird perched atop a real mini white pumpkin.


Here's the accent table in our foyer decked out with my favorite amber glass pumpkins that we've had for a number of years! Gotta love the fun things you can find at Target! One of my new decorations, also a favorite, is the lighted pussy willow! Saw these at Ivy Cottage in Cary and scooped up a set right quick! They are so unique and have a beautiful glow.


Here's a peek at my decorating crew! They work best with a cup of hot tea a few fun size Snicker bars!  That's all the fuel they require to instruct me on where to place things! Thanks girls! :)

Well, enjoy the holiday! We wish you countless blessings and a wonderful Thanksgiving day feast.
