Twas the Day Before Thanksgiving...

...and all through the house, I was running around like a little mouse.  Making my lists and checking them twice, baking enough pie so everyone will have a slice. :) Okay, so poetry is not my strong suit! ;)

Today I'm making final preparations for tomorrow's big feast. I'm so excited! Thought I'd pop in and show you the wine glass initial tags I made for the martini glasses. They match the place cards I made the other day that you can see here.


We're having pomegranate martinis, a recipe of Oprah Winfrey's from 2005. They are so good that we make them almost every holiday. Love the red color and bit of bubbly from the sparkling water!

I'd also like to show you my son's place mat turkey he made at school. I think it'll look perfect at the table!


I think it's so sweet when children write what they are thankful for! Melts my heart!

On Friday, after we've stuffed ourselves like a Thanksgiving bird, we'll put up the tree and holiday decorations. It usually takes the better part of the Thanksgiving weekend and a lot of cocoa to finish!


Last weekend while hunting for treasures at my favorite antique stores, I found some beautiful vintage mercury glass ornaments. They came from Revival, SuzAnne's Antiques and Two Old Birds. We have a small silver tinsel tree that I bet they'll look fabulous on!

Well, I better run and attend to setting the table and checking my lists....again! ;) I may pop in tomorrow with some pictures of the food if time permits. I always make the cranberries and deserts first so I may tease you with something sweet and naughty! ;) Wishing you all the best tomorrow! Enjoy! :) Kathy
