Happy Mail & My Table

Happy Mail!  Just love this creative card I received from Sally
over at Sally Annie Magundy blog.  Yippee!
Sally loves receiving cards.  You know, real cards that come by snail mail. 
She invited the first 5 who signed up to do a Thanksgiving card exchange with her. 
 Such fun!  Now she is showing off the cards as she receives them,
so go take a look. 

She included this sweet package of fall goodies for paper crafting.
Thanks Sally, for your creativity & generosity!  Love this adorable card!

Showing off more Happy Mail...
A sweet friend sent me this gorgeous linen hankie.  She bought
it on her recent trip to Ireland.  I have it displayed where I can see
it's dainty beauty daily.  So lovely and so thoughtful. 

A good friend sent me this homemade jelly that she and her
daughters made.  Oh....the jar arrived full, but I had a large tiny bit 
on a dozen few crackers with a cup of my favorite tea.   
Mr. Retro loves jelly.  I'll be hiding this jar in the refrigerator for awhile,
or I'll never get another bite.  ;)
 Got this commuter mug and sweet hankie from The Vintage
Tablecloth Lovers Club, for helping them.  We are all vintage
tablecloth nuts, eeer, lovers. Come visit the public pages,
the link is on my sidebar.
 Yikes, I forgot I hadn't made Thanksgiving cards for my family, so whipped these up
to mail out this morning. 

& this one for an old friend who moved to California.
We have an enormous Pecan tree.  Mr. Retro came in the other
day with these. He said the ground is covered with them. 
Want to come over and gather some?  We have plenty to share! 
Ah, there might have to be some Pecan pie soon. 

Leaving this until Wednesday evening, when I will reset the table
for Thanksgiving.  Love this unusual vintage tablecloth.  It has the look
and feel of a CHP (California Hand Prints), but has no tag.

I usually wait until after Thanksgiving to bring out the Christmas décor,
but I couldn't resist doing just my tablecloth ladder. 

 Hoping you all have a wonderful holiday with family and/or friends,
safe travel, good food, and warm companionship. 

Doyle seconds that! 


  1. Oh, to have pecans so handy! I just paid a ridiculous price, for 8 cup bag.... for the pies I will be making this week.

    I do love that table cloth... and those amazing green candle stick holders! I always enjoy a vibrant splash of green.

  2. Love the Thanksgiving cards and other goodies. You have the best table cloths! Love love this one. Be sure to share you tablescape once it's done!

  3. Hi Pam,
    You're so very sweet to take pictures and mention my card, so very kind of you. Thank you!

    And look at all those goodies you received, so lovely and how wonderful to be thought of. So much to be thankful for this holiday.
    I've never seen a pecan tree! Where have I been?! So much fun.

  10. When I first moved into my house, I had pecans galore, but now the squirrels beat us to them. You're lucky that you have so many. Will Mr. Retro shell them for you? I love the vivid green in your tablecloth, and the Christmas tablecloth ladder is fantastic.
