Thanksgiving

It has been a crazy month of November for so many of us — and that includes me!  I have been working a ton, which has been great since I love what I am doing, but that also has taken time away from this creative space.  I’ve been trying not to be so glued to my technology, read more, and be a touch more present, too.  But I’ve missed writing and sharing here.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We shared time between our two families again — and as much as the running around can be crazy, we really are so blessed to have both sets of families so close — both in distance and relationally.

Here is the Fall mantel at my in-laws’ house.  Pretty, huh?  Those are fake gourds, but they are very convincing!

 This is the centerpiece that was in the Brick Room before our Thanksgiving table was set up.  Pinecones in an apothecary jar, circled in a wreath.

And you know by now that this foyer table always gets decorated with a little something.  🙂  This time, a metal leaf garland and a pumpkin for good measure.

 Also, a pile of plush velvet pumpkins never hurt.  These are so awesome and came from AJ’s.  But I hear that you can find them at HomeGoods now, too!

Here is the Thanksgiving table that my Mom-in-Law and I put together.  I’m very proud of this table!  It was a team effort and was so beautiful.  That stick runner is mine and was a Target purchase several years ago.  Although I have never made it look quite this pretty before!  It was perfect.

 And here’s my mom and dad’s pretty table that I got to set.  I love her Thanksgiving turkey dishes — I look forward to using these every year.  🙂  It’s easy to make things look pretty when I get to play with such pretty things!

 Here’s my hubby and I.  🙂  Stretchy pants and sweaters for the win!  We were very deliberate with our outfit choices, lol.

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We’re gearing up for Christmas now!  In fact, I have a pretty little vignette to show you next week!
