OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAand how I look forward to having family gather round.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThanksgiving is the only holiday the hubby and I still host as daughters have taken over the rest and create their own traditions.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHere not much changes from year to year.  Dishes are the same

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAand for years dryer hose pumpkins have been arranged one way or another for a centerpiece.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis time some of the pumpkins are in a box that belonged to my much loved mother-in-law.  In spirit she is always with us

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAas is my mother whose flatware is at my place.  Why I kept only one place setting is totally beyond me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMost years there is a little something new just because!


There’s still shopping to do and preparations to be made, but readying the table  and reminiscing about all that it means is one of my favorite parts of the day that is to come.

Have you things on your table that are special to you?

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

  1. Beautiful table!!! I drove to Atlanta to join the family there for Thanksgiving, but took my traditional fresh cranberry salad and homemade bread.

  2. Lovely table! I agree about the memories that holiday dishes and other components on a table bring to mind. It’s part of my favorite reason for putting everything together every year: even when I feel too tired to do it! Enjoy the rest of the holidays!
