Give Thanks

I LOVE Christmas as much as the next girl BUT I am NOT going to rush it (now that's not to say I haven't listened to a few carols that they are already playing on the radio) BUT I haven't put my tree up yet, decorated the house or even began making things for the season. I believe we need to remember Thanksgiving....take the time to be thankful for all the blessings in our lives, no matter how awful things sometimes seem.....with that being said, I do have a few lil fall / thankful decorations up.....


Got this beauty at the Salvation Army....LOVED the color and the shape.....
ANd the price! That's right peeps. $1.95!! This can be used for thanksgiving and every holiday there after! Christmas full of vintage balls, New years full of clock faces, Valentine's Day - hearts of course, St. Patty's - shamrocks, Easter - eggs, Summer - shells! I wouldn't put food in there because I do believe the previous owner painted it.
For now I have a few pinecones (I am having the hardest time finding somewhere to collect the lil buggers!!) and the leaves that were in my flower arrangement.

I simply added some acorns to the base of this glitterati candle that I put into a silver pedestal bowl.....
and displayed it here on the shelf in the entry hallway.....
This is the lil frame next to the number 7 above. It's a vintage dictionary page that just so happened to have a turkey pic next to the definition!!
Which prompted the turkey drawing on the silver chalkboard tray (this display is missing something BUT as usual I will be decorating up until the doorbell rings Thanksgiving day!!)
I printed this out on my computer......

In the China hutch I displayed my Great Grandma's vintage Wheat china (which we will be using for Thanksgiving dinner)

I am linking up at Bungalow http://www.thebungalowblogonline.com/ she's hosting a Thanksgiving Linky party!

Cute use of the vintage dictionary page and the turkey drawing! I also like the china...my Mom has Noritake's Wheat pattern from the 50's or early 60's that my dad bought her in Japan when he was in the navy....
