festive christmas doors



Just a little Christmas inspiration for your front door….


Did you know that Christmas wreaths are
made with evergreens to represent
the everlasting life brought through Jesus 
and the circular shape of the wreath represents God,
with no beginning and no end?




















Happy Holidays!

the table is all set...


I made simple printed napkin rings and added a little bling

... and now I'm off to make my pies.
and Sweet Potato Chiffon Pie.

We can’t have Thanksgiving
without these traditional family pies!

The center of the table features a variety of my favorite Fall items 

I love these two flower arrangements from Trader Joe's

This table cloth is a curtain panel from Target.
I wanted a graphic pattern to set off the white china.

That sweet pumpkin in the center was just baked to make my pies!

A beautiful variety of flowers and colors in this arrangement.

The pumpkin has now been replaced my  little vintage Tom Turkey

The Wedgwood china is my in-laws' wedding china.
It's so pretty and is cherished by us all.   

Do you like the pops of orange?

A simple piece of burlap anchors the center of the table

Lovely Autumn colors

I hope Claudia will be pleased, tee hee!

We're ready for the feast!


Wishing you and yours a blessed Thanksgiving.

wishing you a happy Thanksgiving!

As we express our gratitude,
we must never forget that the highest appreciation
is not to utter words,
but to live by them.
