Happy Thanksgiving Week Decor, Morphing Into Christmas

Tis the busy season!  I am so overdue for a new post.
 I want to share my "minimal" Thanksgiving decor.
Though minimal it is just enough for us. 

Here is the decorated dining room table.
How about this honeycomb turkey I found at an estate sale a couple years ago? Cute!
The pilgrim salt & pepper shakers on the left are from PUBLIX grocery store, 
an offering from 2001.  So fun to bring out each year.  The turkey salt and 
pepper shakers are from Germany, a cherished gift from a blogging friend. 
The pilgrim candles are Gurley and were a little beat up when I found them, so I
 fixed a little display.  The candlestick holders are vintage Japan, and that's it! 

 Unless you want to count....
Pumpkin bread!  I have to make it every year from scratch.
 Filled with walnuts and raisins, it is so delicious.  

I started unpacking my vintage Christmas "smalls" and
will show you more later.

I want to share some of my vintage Christmas card stash.
I'm thinking I should actually send some of these out this year.
I love them, but they are living in a box most of the year.
What do you think?  Would you use vintage cards?

Can't help but enjoy the graphics on these.
Who doesn't love Santa? The large card is frame worthy.

 The ever popular candles, bells, wreaths and lantern designs.

Sweet religious themes

Old fashioned nature and home scenes, wisemen & shepherds. 

 This is the most unusual in my stash.  A large flag, with the word
PEACE embossed underneath it.

I would like to leave you with a Thanksgiving poem by 
Ralph Waldo Emerson.


for each new morning with its light
for rest and shelter of the night
for health and food
for friends and love
for everything
thy goodness sends

Have a Happy Thanksgiving my friends!  


  1. Pam, I love that honeycomb turkey! He is so big! What a score. Just the sneak peek of your Christmas smalls made me squeal with delight! I have vintage cards that I have a hard time parting with as well. Maybe we should send each other one. :) Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. I'm thankful for blogging friends like you. I didn't get out any Thanksgiving decor this year but I am determined to decorate for Christmas!!

  3. Love your holiday decorations! The grandkids are going to be with their other grandparents for Thanksgiving Day, so we haven't decorated at all, but plans are afoot for Christmas decorating.
