Thanksgiving

Today I am just sharing a couple of decorations in my home. The first picture in the collage is just a basket with leaves that I didn't know what to do with. I used to have a wooden Thanksgiving day set and one of the pieces broke so I just put the Pilgrim and Native American in front of it. The next picture is a candle that a student gave me last year. I took the "insides" out and replaced them with a fake plants from JoAnn Fabrics. Years ago I bought the rustic looking candle holder at a home party (I don't remember the company name.). The wooden pumpkin was given to me by a friend. It belonged to her best friend (who I also knew) who passed away several years ago at the age of 39 after loosing a battle with brain cancer. It's a special addition to my holiday decorations. I'll always remember her! The last picture is just a little platter, candle holders and salt and pepper shakers.

take care,
Dawn

Well, aren't you a smartie this morning with your pretty collage. Really, it looks fantastic.

I'm cold, and I sure would like some warm cranberry bread. ;-)

Good morning Dawn, I love your festive Fall pics. Your presentation is something I would love to learn to do. Beverly, where are you??? I think she is resting after that 'shower to kill' is over. Smile

Happy Sunday Dawn.

Such great Autumn decorations. I like what you've done :0). That pumpkin must be so special. The fall "foliage" in the glass cylinder look great like that! I may have to steal that idea :0)
Be sure to come over. I've got a little something for you.
