family thanksgiving decor.

Here's how our house is decorated for Thanksgiving this year.

Photos of my two blessings. Some pumpkins I bought from a local craft fair and...

.....a cute little turkey from Michael's.

I have showed you my apothecary jar full of acorns before. I wasn't sure how to decorate the other jar.

This is what I came up with. Some nuts I have in the house. It needed something more so I added the twiggy pumpkin to the top.

This nature inspired turkey sits in front. I've had him for years and he's starting to show his age.

Sitting in our hall......

Metal baskets from the Goodwill.

Fall fruits and nuts from JoAnne's (clearance).

I also found these pumpkin picks at JoAnne's.

I already had these pots filled with floral foam and topped with Spanish moss. So I was just able to plop the picks right in. Plop the picks....say that 5 times fast!

A sweet Thanksgiving card I bought years ago. The picture is by Susan Wheeler.

The card is on my bulletin board along with this fruit of the spirit cornucopia done by my oldest son.
Grant also made this pirate turkey back in the 2nd grade (he's a fifth grader now). Here is what he wrote about Thanksgiving that year.

"On Thanksgiving usually my mom cooks a very big and good feast. Even sometimes my grandparents come over to visit. While mom cooks our very good feast, dad normally just would watch football. After our delicious feast my dad would wash the dishes. That's my Thanksgiving!"

  9. Aunt Kathy bought the kids each one of these same turkeys and I thought they look familiar... that's why. Kay
