Thanksgiving Decor

Pin It!
Halloween & Christmas
are such big, fun holidays
that it seems
Thanksgiving often gets
crowded out.
Not at our house!
Thanksgiving is hubby's
probably because it's so
uncomplicated & peaceful.

So-o-o, no matter the temptation,
I make a sincere effort every
year to hold back the Christmas decor
for the simplicity & gratitude
Thanksgiving evokes.

If you've read my blog before, you may recall
So, I just erased & changed over to
a message appropriate for Thanksgiving!
(This time I used a chalkboard marker. 
Even though it's harder to erase, I loved using it!)

Some of the garland pieces are the same ones
used on the Halloween mantle, but I added
pine sprigs, glitter pine cones, & white lights.
(This is what it looks like at night.)

I checked today, & Costco still has these wonderful
battery-operated wax candles
with timers.
I LOVE them!
And a set of 4 is only about $20--
plus they are on coupon ($4 off)!
Another area I love to decorate is
my entry way chest 
& mirror.

I used some gold letters
from Restoration Hardware
in the garland
to spell our family name.

More Thanksgiving fun to come!
