I absolutely cannot start out my post today without sending a huge thank you for all of your awesome birthday cards, messages, and greetings! You sure know how to make a girl feel amazing, and I am so truly grateful for all of YOU! I tell you what, I am a big fan of this weekend birthday thing. I consider not having to wake up with the 6 am alarm clock to be a gift all in itself!
So of course this week is Thanksgiving week for those of us here in the States. I thought today I would take you on a little tour of my house, all decked out in turkeys, pumpkins, and pilgrims for the holiday. ‘Cause you all know me by now……..I do tend to take my holidays very seriously!
Today I thought we’d start out in my dining room, and take a peek at my Thanksgiving table and antique sideboard. This is by far my favorite spot in my Thanksgiving home, where the heart of the holiday can be found.
The black transferware pieces of last month have now been switched out to brown, my very favorite of all. As always, mixed with nice crisp white ironstone, and my collection of vintage Napco ware turkeys.
Way back in the day, folks knew how to set a festive table. There were pieces for every possible need. I, of course, in my searches have found them. This little turkey here is the napkin holder.
This guy is the cream pitcher, and the one on the right is the medium sized planter.
Top left is the large planter, followed by the pepper shaker and the sugar bowl on the far right.
And i have some beautiful game bird transferware, too.
This one in the teacup is the salt shaker.
And the pair on the table are the candlesticks. Such funny little things, aren’t they?
Now into my sunroom.
With lots of pilgrims and pumpkins. Fall leaves, too.
Another pair of vintage turkey salt and pepper shakers.
I keep out most of my Halloween pumpkins for Thanksgiving. If they have a jack o-lantern face, I just turn them around to the back. Peeking up behind the pumpkins is a paper scarecrow the little Missy made way back in Kindergarten.
Down below are more pumpkins, both painted and paper.
Yet again, more vintage turkey salt and pepper shakers. At one time, no Thanksgiving table could be complete without a set.
And the back of my kitchen basement door with another of the little Miss’s school craft projects from long ago.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour! There’s more! Of course there is more. I’ll finish up the tour next time, my friends. Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing you all a very wonderful day!
