Grateful...

my favorite holiday is upon us...

the cooking starts in a few minutes and i wanted to share my quick holiday table with you...

nothing extreme, raw and simple...






a vintage store display sign turned chalkboard with a gentle reminder...

a vintage sap bucket filled with wild rose hips gathered from the prairie...

a antique photo of those who came before....




ironstone, pewter, and vintage doilies...




and a antique horn handled carving set...



i am {SO} grateful for this life i have been handed...

i am so {grateful} for you all who come and visit me on my little prairie...

i {am} so grateful for being able to live my dreams...

i am so grateful for each opportunity to unfurl my {wings}...

i am so grateful for {rug rats} with peanut butter faces and baby doll bangs....




{happy} thanksgiving my dear friends!!

Oh my gracious! That last photo is so precious! I love the idea of the lil photo with who came before. At our Thanksgiving's as kids (second Monday in October in Canada) we would go out and gather all sorts of wild grasses, twigs with bits of leaves, anything we thought was beautiful and brought it back to Grandma to go on the table. It was our Fall bouquet and we took our job seriously! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
