I haven’t done much decorating for holidays this year, but for some reason, I was in the mood for a little Fall in the house. I’ve put out the beautiful table runner Julia made for me on the dining room table, along with my amber glass turkeys. I am so in love with the turkeys. Every year I am thankful I bought them because they make me so happy every time I unwrap them to put on our table. I did a little something different for the centerpiece, using the gourds in one of my hurricanes.
Not a lot of decorating, just a few touches around the house. So in love with white pumpkins on the mantel too.
And Julia sent me a very thoughtful care package from Rhode Island a couple of weeks ago. Her note said “I thought you might like some of the beauty of New England for yourself. I thought of you and collected and dried these leaves.” I’m so thankful for that.
And somehow I’ve never noticed it before, but it appears our tree in the front yard takes on a beautiful color in the Fall. Who knew?
We’re having a quiet Thanksgiving this year, just watching the Macy’s Parade and then going over to my inlaw’s house for Thanksgiving dinner.
And we definitely have a reason to be thankful each and every day.
