Simply Done

I can hardly believe it's time to think about Thanksgiving, where has this year flown to? I'm sure many of you are busy preparing for all of your guests to arrive, putting finishing touches on your meals. Like you, we have the traditional meal with all the goodies.

This year the gathering will be small and intimate. Mr. P loves company, but prefers the groups to be smaller and a bit on the quiet side. Many of you have asked about him, so I'll bring you up to date. For the most part he's doing quite well, much better that I'm home all the time. I think I'm his bit of security. I had worked the other job for so long "thinking" I was doing the right thing, it helped financially to pay for all of his medicines. I was home the month of August and saw a drastic change him, as well as the doctor. I quit my job the first of September and he continues to do well. So, from the bottom of our hearts we thank each and everyone of you for asking.

I hurriedly threw together this table late yesterday afternoon. I've been so busy in the shop and elsewhere I totally forgot about a centerpiece for the table. I chose my pheasant and the vintage mercury candlesticks.
















I'm joining Susan for Tablescape Thursday. I'm off to see more of the beautiful tablescapes. See you there. Until next time....
hugs ~lynne~
From our home to yours we wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving.

Susan...your salt and pepper shakers stole my heart. The very last thing my husband gave me before he died was an acorn. I wear a silver one around my neck and they always catch my eye. Always will!
Have a wonderful and Blessed Thanksgiving!

Your pheasant makes a beautiful centerpiece. Sounds like you and Mr. P have much to be thankful for this season. Thanks so much for sharing and Happy Thanksgiving.

Dining Delight said...

I love your pheasant as the centerpiece - the perfect fall fellow! Your flatware goes well with the dishes and the acorn S&P are so cute.
It must have been a difficult decision to give up your job. I'm glad to hear, Mr. P is doing better because of it.

Such pretty, pretty items, Lynne...all gathered together & playing nicely, just like family! ;-)
Your home is lovely & I'm happy to read that Mr. P. is doing better.

By any chance, was he ever in the service? You can get his meds heavily discounted from the VA if he served in any of the armed forces. Just a thought you might want to check into.

Hugs & Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours.
fondly,
Rett
