{Thanksgiving Blessings}

WOW! I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is RIGHT HERE ON US. I find the older I become the faster time seems to fly.

Welcome to my little bit of Fall this year!



I went very simple this year with my tablescape. Gold flatware went well with the color scheme and paired up perfectly with light gold napkins and wooden napkin rings.


Love my new dishes this year and what I really loved about them was the price!


I had the goblets but I bought these dishes from a yard sale and loved the simple design. Each setting consisted of 4 pieces and I winded up with a service for 12 for $15! Not to shabby of a deal huh? A few pieces had some chips but nothing noticeable. Love me a deal! The table runner was actually a curtain but goes perfect with my colors.


Simple candle setting for centerpiece. I found this at the Family Dollar Store for $8. I've had the cute leaf salt/pepper shakers for a few years.



Creamer, sugar and artificial sweetener sits on this tray I've had for a long time in my little harvest pretties.

A little Fall from the ceiling...


Awe...and yes I do love these canisters. I actually bought a set of three for my motherinlove one year. After she went home to be with Jesus they came back to me.

This one stores goodies for the grandbabies.


This one worked out perfect for utensils.
The 3rd one actually has a candle in it but I forgot to snap a pic.


 This old vase sits in a corner in my kitchen on a wooden tray stand and it was one of those treasures that was handed down to me from my grandmother.
 

Gotta have some scarecrows and these two are getting on up in age...



I've had Henry for years and years. He has went from the front porch to the carport, from the living room to the hallway and now he sits in the kitchen this year. He's made his rounds. The grandbabies love him. 



I've had up my little bit of Fall since September so I could enjoy it a little longer than usual. Thanksgiving is a time to truly count our blessings isn't it?

Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful, and I can’t even begin to express in words the gratitude I have for all that I have been given beginning with my salvation.  I truly feel blessed! But when I count my blessings these little blessings surely are at the top of my list.

My oldest daughter Kristy and her family.



My Middle daughter Melissa and her family. 


My youngest daughter and her family...


And I did say family as this sweet little girl will be joining us in April!



 And last but by far least...this man....The Lord knew what He was doing many moons ago when He gave me my man! 

 No one would EVER put up with me like he does. But can I tell you a little secret? Shhhhhhh...........no one would put up with him like I do either!

I praise the Lord for the blessings in my life.


We are truly blessed aren't we?


 What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. Oh, my...what am I thankful for? First of all Jesus and how I'm shown grace and mercy and forgiveness and the work being done in my heart to do the same. My Man (and I do feel the same about who puts up with who...LOL)....our daughter and son-in-love and our grandbabies. My Mom who is still with us after a massive heart attack. Trials and troubles that draw me closer to the Lord. Great friends....like you! Love you, sweet Lady. Happy THANKSgiving!

  8. Yet another lovely post, Cindy. Thanks so much. We do indeed have so much to be thankful for. I've printed your "poster," and I'm going to frame it and use it as part of our Thanksgiving dinner and decorations. Your dishes are lovely, as is your table, but families are the loveliest things of all. Thankful for those precious blessings at your house and at ours. :) ~Zuni

  17. Hi Cindy! I love the idea of a curtain as a table runner! You are so inventive, I never would have thought of that. And isn't it great that you have decorations that your grandchildren love so well? It's tradition, and I love that.

    Your girls are so beautiful, as are their families. What a wonderful blessing! Are they local? It's so great to keep in contact as the the littles grow, marry and then have littles of their own...
    Happiest of Thanksgivings with your table settings and decor. It sure looks like you are ready to party!!
    Blessings,
    Ceil
