Thanksgiving Table on Dream Lane

 I have the table almost set..
Luckily my husband and his sister are doing the cooking which gave me time to play.. I made my napkins since I didnt have any fall tones in my stash..

I'm participating in Marty's Party at ~
A Stroll Thru Life

 Susans party at Between Naps on the Porch
Susan's Party BNOTP
Please go visit these blog and see all the beautiful and inspirational posts folks have added.. I know they'd love for you to visit them too...

The Autumn Monarch plates by Johnson bros, came from homegoods.. We dont have meals at the table too often so just adding salad plates to my regular dishes gives a feeling of the season or occasion.
 I wish you All the Happiest of Thanksgivings and a wonderful holiday season full of peace , joy and Love.
Our Thanksgiving tradition is to let each person at the table have a moment to tell what they are grateful for..
Its wonderful to hear what they say but I have to admit it was more fun when the kids were little as what they'd say was so cute. Kids are like that, point blank-- whatever enters their mind at the moment...

I did have different table cloths but this crocheted table cover reminds me of my grandmothers table.. I miss you Nana, so please be close by in spirit with us...
 We dont have the fanciest table but it'll be a happy place and we'll all be grateful to be together.. Time seems to be going by so quickly and I want to hold these special moments as long as I possibly can.

you may have noticed my Jute Fruit:) I found a bag of fruit at goodwill with bumps and scratched and gouged out places that someone had turned in.. Even at the dollar store each piece is 1.00.. This bag had 11 pieces for 2.00 so I scooped up that bargain.. I had planned to paint them but then the idea of wrapping them in jute twine hit ~~ so I did:)  I have 9 more pieces to get done .. Thats what I'll be doing while we sit and watch the Macy's Day Parade..

 Happy Thanksgiving ~!!! and thanks for coming to visit me...

  21. Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving Sonny!
    Your table is classy and I appreciate the clever fruit makeover using twine! This year we are eating on the go, but that's fine with me!
    Thanksgiving is especially meaningful with the amazing blessing my daughter was given by the gift of life. Heather is still in the hospital, but she looks amazing. Her cheeks are pink and rosy like before her illness. She should be released in a couple days. Her wonderful donor Robert is on the mend and doing well also.
    Hugs, Cathy
