Last Hurrah for Fall

Thanksgiving Table 2008 004

All along I have been thinking Mr. Brown Socks and I would be hosting Thanksgiving in our home as we normally do.  Lo and behold my sister in law offered to have it!  It didn’t take me long to say “why yes we’ll come.  Thank you very much!”

On the heels of my silk Christmas show it is a treat to not have to cook for so many this year.  I might actually get a little Christmas decorating done this weekend too.

Since I don’t have to set a Thanksgiving table this year, I hope you don’t mind if I share my table from last year when I was just a young blogger.  Oh, you may be surprised to learn that I do have other dishes besides my brown transferware!  They have really gotten good use this fall. :)

Thank you so much Susan for encouraging us to set pretty tables and to offer such a fun way for us to share our dishes and accessories.  Between Naps on the Porch is SUCH an inspiration.  It is one of the things I am very thankful for on this Thanksgiving Eve.



Wishing all my blogging buddies the best Thanksgiving ever.  I hope you have much to be thankful for just as I do.

Happy Tablescape Thursday! I enjoyed seeing your transferware. That is a favorite of mine, and I particularly like your sign on your table that says, "bountiful." Our plans went awry (we were supposed to be in NC, but hubby has been recuperating from flu and didn't feel up to the long drive), so we are going on a date! ;-)

I'm glad to see your table from last year because I've never seen it before. You could have told me it was from this year, and I would not have known the difference! LOL! I would have oohed and ahhed either way. Glad you get to play "hooky," too.

Happy Thanksgiving...


Sheila :-)

I get a respite from cooking the whole meal, too, this year. Good for you! I am making carrot souffle, green bean bundles and a salad. We are going to some friend's home for dinner. Enjoy your time with your family!!! I am thankful you are my friend! ;)
