Come, Ye Thankful People, Come

Cornucopia \ n (1508)1: a curved goat's horn overflowing with fruit and ears of grain that is used as a decorative motif emblematic of abundance.
Cornucopia / Horn of Plenty
Such funny words to describe something that holds so many pretty things from nature.
It is the symbol of our gratefulness for all God has blessed us with.
I was very thankful to have a family with a large enough dining room table to order this 4' or so cornucopia. :) :) It's doubtful you can really judge the size by the picture, but the table seated twelve nicely.

Thank you both. Sweet of you.

Kathy, I thought about how I could do a tutorial and with my primitive blogging skills, it would take me hours! In a few words let me say, I start at the bottom and build a base, then sometimes insert something bit (pumpkin or cluster of flowers) in middle and then start at the very top and form the top portion. Then I fill in the middle. Does that help at all? Feel free to ask me if you have any questions, okay?

Janice and Kathy, thank you both for commenting on my blog.
