A late Thanksgivng entry!

Just wanted to share our Thanksgiving table with you.
 I know I am late but I think you know, life happens!
 My nephew from Maryland came and spent it with us and we were over the moon to have John here. I miss my niece, Victoria  and nephews, John & Michael a lot.
I feel like I have missed so much of their growing up years.
 I do keep in touch but it just isn't the same. I want to hug them!
Anyway, I put on Thanksgiving dinner and invited neighbors and friends of theirs.
We had so much food! The conversation was wonderful and all had a great time.

                            I used my country roses dishes and pumpkin dishes for dessert.


                                Vintage green pitcher was bought at a The Thrift Store.
                                 It matches my green plates, above.

 Another find in Buffalo, NY. I have two of them and use them frequently!

I want to share a little trick I have done to save my dishes in our many moves.
I cut a piece of felt the size of the plates and the felt is placed between each dish.
It is not hard. Time consuming, but not hard.
I turned a plate face down on a piece of felt and traced it with a ball point pen.
Then I cut the felt with pinking shears for a pretty edge.
I used red felt because it matched my dishes.

I think it saves the edges of  my dishes from getting chipped.

Just wanted to let you see our Thanksgiving Day.  Hope you liked my little trick!

Our house is all decorated for Christmas! I will be sharing that next.
 Until then........

Blessings My Friend,

I will be joining Susan At BNOTP for Tablescape Thursday.


  1. What a brilliant and beautiful way to save the dishes from getting scratched! I don't think it is ever too late to share a beautiful table for any season! Your plates are so lovely. I only have one set of nice plates, but I love all of the inexpensive ones that I have enmass!! I would hate to ever have to move them all. Joni (my sister at Red Couch Recipes) just moved in September. She had 40 boxes of dishes! Yikes - I am sure I have more. Hope you are enjoying Christmas! Hugs.

  2. What pretty floral plates! And a neat tip too. Blessings, Angie
