Wow! How is it already time for Thanksgiving…. and this is my first blog hop since my illness.
Well, to be honest, I have been out of the thick of things for a year and a half, but with God’s help, I am back among the active people.
However, I have to admit that I am not really “full on”, so I am taking the little tablescape from my ‘comeback announcement” last week (click here if you missed it) and modifying it a bit.
Is that cheating? I hope not.
For this Blog Hop…..
I left the black and white buffalo check table runner and chargers because I adore the scarecrows and how they tie in.
I changed out the napkins to orange and the center of the centerpiece from a cloche and candle to a mercury glass pumpkin.
…. I also changed the flatware and added the autumn leaves tumblers from dollar store from many moons ago.
AND candles…I just love the fragrances and these candles are Harrry Slatkin Candles, Autumn Collection!
Yummy! They smell so good.
I asked the Captain to “dig out” my favorite Fall dishes, Spode Woodland. (I have used these salad plates in several blog hops before.)
It feels so good to be back among my fellow, talented, tablescapers again….just like old home week.
There are so many ideas one can incorporate into a bee-u-ti-ful Thanksgiving table.
You don’t have to have lots of dishes or centerpieces…just add a little something to make your table feel special to your family.
We don’t know if our Thanksgiving will be a large family oriented as we once were…. before this horrible virus took over, but however big our gathering, we can make it feel special to our family.
There is so much to be thankful for these days. Let’s be sure to count our Blessings.
I read a very good devotional the other day.
It read in part….
“Counting our blessings is always being humble and giving thanks for everything in life. We are thankful for Jesus Christ who is everything. We are thankful for food, friends, family. God’s Love.”
Appreciate everything in life because there are people who are starving and many are in a way harder situation than we are.
Remember, our bad days are someone’s good days
“Oh give thanks to the Lord for He is Good, for His steadfast love endures forever”
I know our family will certainly be counting our many Blessings for sure.
Thank you Chloe for organizing this Blog Hop and thank you for your special prayers for my recovery.
