I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving. We had some family stay and family visit.
I did all the cooking--loved it.
I also threw a table setting together at the last second. I usually like to be Type A and have the table set the day before. But this year it didn't happen. I actually thought it turned out great. The only new piece I bought was this tablecloth, but I know I'll use it all the time, not just for Thanksgiving. That's why I posted the image quote above. Between Thanksgiving and all the holidays it can be easy to get caught up in needing to spend money to make things beautiful. I'm here to tell you that if you collect pieces you love through the years, they magically all work together.
And don't judge--I didn't iron the napkins! ;-)
Just like the rooms I design, I always think it's a good idea to mix the old and the new. Even with stemware!
Other than eating...all the time..we did a little reading.
Watched our favorite movie.
We visited friends. (I can't get my son out of a hooded Spartan sweatshirt. Any tips on that?)
I painted my yellow chair Misty Teal by Ben Moore.
We decorated gingerbread houses. It's becoming a Thanksgiving weekend tradition. Everyone is in their PJ's for this pic except my oldest, who is again sporting the hooded sweatshirt. ;-)
Time is flying! I started decorating the house for Christmas yesterday. I'm trying my hand at adding more paper decorations to the house this year. I'm also doing a week of holiday posts this week. A few of you submitted decorating questions on my Facebook page so I'll be answering those as well. I so appreciate keeping the conversation going with you on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.
Bring on the Season!
