Thanksgiving walk about....




Each year after Halloween, I keep a few decorations out to decorate a little for Thanksgiving. Last year, I overheard some ladies talking about how they hate that no one really decorates for Thanksgiving. I realized I didn't either and decided to do a little more this year.



I always put out Mr. Turkey...this year I used a teeny pumpkin though and he looks totally underfed!




Mr. Scarecrow keeping the birds at bay...

scarecrows replaced those cute Halloween ghost pops...

Some cute decorations and platter Kaela made years ago decorate a shelf in the entryway...


On this table, I put our Halloween scarecrow out but striped all the spiders off of him....new he is dressed for Thanksgiving.
Matt made me the little platter years ago (same time as Kaela did) and we use it for Thanksgiving dinner.
The sweet white pumpkin was a swap goodie from
Lori.

On Thanksgiving day, the leaves will be covered with desserts...yum!


For this month's YOE, we had to create something for our holiday table.

See the teeny acorn in front of the pumpkins?
Those are what I made for the challenge. I
stumbled across THIS post and knew they would be perfect for the table.

Cute, huh!?




Here is a better view of the basket and acorns...


In the family room, I hung the rag swag I made for the YOE challenge for October. It looks great on the mantel, especially at night....

Next year, I plan to add a few more decorations...

Your house looks all warm and cozy. I don't think I have ever decorated for Thanksgiving. I think I'm a decorating slacker lol.
