I'm always looking for ways to use old things in new ways....so this year I just gathered things from around the house to decorate my table.
Old law books purchased this summer in Fredericksburg, an old shoe form found in Montana...
The vintage bottle shining in the candlelight we found in Wyoming this summer.
Grasses from my yard as well as scented geranium and greek oregano in vases...
This beautiful blue cobalt bud vase belonged to my ex-husband...who used to always spend Thanksgiving with us.
He has been gone a number of years and I like to have his spirit with us....as well as that of Brad's parents.....We use his mom's silverware to eat with...a little tarnished...but loved none the less.
This small blue bottle is one that I altered...it was given to me by a friend in Idaho....It is actually an old vanilla bottle from Mexico...you can still smell the vanilla....added the Traditions tag..as I thought it was so appropriate for this holiday. I use kantha cloths from India as table covers...as I love the colors....
When we use old things at Thanksgiving we are reminded of those who came generations before enabling us to live this wonderful life we live in this wonderful country of ours.
In closing....we are off on a little cruise for a while...
Here is wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving.....see you when we return.
