    1. Thanks, Carole! Nice to know someone else appreciates Thanksgiving! I try to enjoy each holiday…

  1. Me too! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year — non commercial and all about family and passing along traditions and memories. Thanks for featuring my Birds of a Feather table Shelley. It includes a number of vintage elements passed down in the family that I cherish. Today I shared my latest; a pumpkin patch theme Thanksgiving brunch as part of the tablescape hop.

  2. Shelley, while I do love Christmas, I really enjoy seeing all these ideas for Thanksgiving, and hope it continues a while longer! Thank you for hosting the best of the weekend, and I hope you save some for yourself!

      1. Thank you for hosting! This is what I featured the week of 10-28 to 11-1 on my blog. On Tuesday morning was a Raspberry Custard Pie. Wednesday I posted a Blackberry Cobbler. Wrapping up this week of fruity pies, cobblers and tarts I highlighted a Key Lime Tart. Enjoy!

  3. That sums up exactly how I feel! I just LOVE Thanksgiving so I never skip over it… though I am planning and getting a start on our Christmas shopping.

    1. Great – I think every holiday should have some attention! I agree with you…I am planning for Christmas as well!

  4. Even though I start right after Halloween, decorating for Christmas, I fully celebrate Thanksgiving. For the past 32 years, I have held Thanks giving Dinner at my house, cooking every single item that my family of 5 has for dinner. I have also had to work either the Eve or the Day of Thanksgiving because as a Staff RN, hospitals stay open on Holidays and you have to work either the eve or the day of every Holiday when you work night shift. I just worked my schedule of sleeping around my Thanksgiving Day dinner. And since it takes me almost 25 days to decorate my house inside and out for Christmas, I have to start early to enjoy it for Christmas.
    Thanks for hosting!!

    1. Sounds like you are very busy this time of year. I can understand why you have to start decorating early! Maybe if I stretched my decorating out a little more, I would be less stressed about trying to get most of it done in one weekend! Thanks for sharing your decorating schedule and for joining us this week!
