It was easy for me to segue from Fall decorations into Halloween decorations and then into Thanksgiving decorations on November 1st. The fall garlands and pumpkins were all there - just had to change out ghosts and goblins for turkeys, Pilgrims and Indians.
Al loves Thanksgiving so I try to make it special around here. My heart wants to start hanging Christmas wreaths and pulling out nativities, nutcrackers, and Santa Claus but, I will wait and give Thanksgiving it's due. After all, I have an awfully lot to be thankful for.
We will put the tree(s) up the week before Thanksgiving so there will be sharing of the two holidays for a while. Also, I must put up the vintage silver tree in our bedroom soon. I adore it and I enjoy hanging the old mercury glass ornaments on it.
Today is dedicated to Thanksgiving. I am doing it in two parts - today is the den. I will share the breakfast room in a couple of days.
I am very thankful for Blue Creek Home
I adore my Thanksgiving carolers
I think they are singing 'thanks' to our
Father who is the giver of all good things!
I used a straw pumpkin in
the large cloche in the center
He is hiding, but the turkey on the left
is very old - love him!
Burlap and Fall leaves are draped
across the top of this book case
I got the huge lantern for Christmas last year.
I would love to make a pilgrims
bonnet for my pretty girl
For now she is still a princess!
I just got the spiral topiary a
couple of weeks ago when
we were in Orange Beach
I think old leather books and
vintage tins add beauty anywhere
On the coffee table, I stacked pumpkins.
Don't you love the white ones?
These came from Wal-Mart for $4.99
I removed the cloches from their bases
on each end of the mantle and
added these tall wheat bundles
I brought in the wonderfully rusted
wrought iron planter and set it on the hearth
I will fill it with live magnolia leaves
a little closer to Christmas
I got the set of blue mercury glass
candle holders from Wisteria -
I like the pop of non traditional color
I painted the little pumpkins with
Annie Sloan's duck egg and off white paint

I will be back soon with more pictures of
Thanksgiving @ BCH
Have a great week!
