A Short Season for Thanksgiving Decorations
I’ve really dragged my feet putting away favorite Thanksgiving figures. Although I love to decorate for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, the major downside is them all occurring back-to-back, over three months.

A continuation of yesterday’s post, Cornucopia Takes Center Stage on Thanksgiving Table, both tables were set for the same Thanksgiving meal, when a crowd of out-of-town family were here for the holiday.
The more the merrier!

Today, I’m sharing part one of two Thanksgiving table settings I used for the holiday a few of years ago, when out-of-town family came in from five cities. (more…)
