It seems I might NEVER get ALL these boxes unpacked....
We're OLDEN, you know....
and we work SOOO slow...
I do, however, have most of the rooms looking straight and proper
and I just keep ignoring those boxes sitting over there in the corner.
I must find a few THANKSGIVING items to make things look festive.
Our sweet family will be here for Thanksgiving lunch, as always,
and we are so excited to be having it here in our new place.
I searched thru boxes and came up with my beautiful, large brown ceramic pumpkin
this pretty thing was bought about 3 or 4 years ago at TJMAXX
and I still love it lots.
...then, I found my beautiful GIVE THANKS plaque that my sweet daughter,
STACY LEIGH, gave me a few years back.
I've had the pretty holder for several years, from my favorite little boutique.
I had already unpacked my AUTUMN, orange candle that smells so heavenly.
Would you believe that the flowers I bought for my sweet BUNCO BABES
are still beautiful.
(most likely, tho, I'll buy fresh ones for our day)
So, it seemed to me that I had enuf "pretties" to decorate a pretty spot
at the end of the island in the kitchen.
We'll have buffet style on that very island..
BUTTERY MASHED POTATOES
SPIRAL SLICED HONEY HAM
SWEET POTATO FRIES (baked in the oven)
GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE
DESSERTS DESSERTS DESSERTS.....
so I think one end all decorated up will make all the luscious foods
look even more delicious.
Yes, we are thankful for all the delicious foods that will be served.
But, like you, it's having our family and friends around us, sharing the
gratefulness and thankfulness that we all feel,
especially this time of year.
I hope you all have the kind of Thanksgiving you are thankful for.
(Now, I have to get busy and unpack (UN-pack...???)
a few Christmas decorations....
OH ME....OH MY....
Ain't life GRAND !!
