Happy Thanksgiving Tablescape

From my home to yours.....

From my table to yours.....

I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving;
one filled with peace, and joy, and lots of hugs.

And lots of delicious yummy goodness to eat...

I will praise God with a song;
 I will magnify Him with thanksgiving.
                                                        -Psalm 69:30 

And the sorry truth for after all my feasting:

As always, thank you for your visit.
It means a lot, and I am truly grateful.
Hugs and prayers,

Comment free  - so you have enough time to dole out those hugs and those extra pieces of pumpkin pie!

Neutral Autumn Dining in Green

Before the blog world turns completely into Christmas and Winter
 wonderland I thought I'd better share my fall tablescape!

Our fall table in green this year is something quite different for me.
I have had it like this since early September.

It has been a nice transition from summer to fall
 while our temps were still high and leaves hadn't changed.

I may warm it up more now that true autumn weather has arrived.

The Pamela Gladding salad plates are a recent ebay find,
 and the "moody" grey-green napkins
were purchased a few months ago.


 The wicker napkin rings are also a new-to-us find
 from my favorite second-hand store after their fall season last year.

I forgot all about them stashed away in an autumn decor box.....
oh, the thrill of finding forgotten treasures! ♥

The extra tall wainscoting wall wood work
 and custom framed trio of feather prints in the background
 are a recent addition to our home that I haven't shared yet.

I intended on doing blog posts about each of our little home improvement changes
 we have had done in the last year, but good intentions weren't enough to make it happen.

The tall natural rattan vase was found by dear tea sister Mary D.

The larger mercury pumpkin was a recent birthday gift
from my dear tea sister Karen.

It lights up at night and is such a pretty way to add a bit
 of ambient lighting to that dark music area.


Our wrought iron table is fun to seasonally decorate
 and is useful as a make-shift coffee/tea/drinks station
 for dinner or tea parties.

It is shallow and adds interest to the back wall without interfering
with the path area getting to and from the dining table.

I used to keep an ornate iron and glass etagiere there,
 but it no longer worked once we added our new wood work.

Here is a different prospect from the foyer
of my 1959 vintage Baldwin  7 foot grand piano-
 and its wee "twin" that our 3-year-old grand-girl often plays.

Yes, those are York Peppermint Patties.

I was excited to find a perfect way to display my rusty metal leaf
my eldest daughter gave to me for my birthday a few years ago.

I love having a fall birthday!

It is my favorite time of year to decorate, and to add
 my beloved autumn decor birthday gifts
 makes it all that much more special!

The background of the mirror reflection captures a glimpse
of the top of our tall antique china cabinet with a large ceramic
pumpkin with metal leaves, and an European-inspired
colorful autumn silk floral arrangement 
 I designed many years ago. 

A pretty scented candle and another color coordinated 
silk floral arrangement
completes and complements the green theme this year.

I really liked taking these easy and moody darker pictures.

I have had the flu for over a week now, and couldn't find
 the strength or energy  to fuss with setting up 
heavy photo lights or doing much photo editing.

Hope you have enjoyed as much as I have had sharing.

As always, thank you for your visit.

Hugs and prayers.
