Today, I am thankful for you.  I am grateful for the tall oak trees "giving us nature, beauty, strength, life and wisdom"- the above oak leaf and acorns bring Joy to my table.  They set the "Perfect-Beginning" for this day full of grace.  Joy sent these to me.
Here is my table that I had so much fun setting.  

For the place cards, I cut oak leaf, and leaf shapes and painted gold on the edge, then tied them to small pumpkins with bias binding.
Today we have two tables set for a bountiful feast, Turkey and all the trimmings!
This table is for the "grown-ups" but truth be told, I will never grow up!
Outside on my back porch, the beverages are chilling and ready for a thirsty bunch.  Cheers to each of you who brighten my day with your comments, your e-mails and your energy!  Break bread, say grace and raise your glass to one another and give thanks!  Chin Chin!  I have some very special desserts which I shall share with you friday.   To those of you that are unable to be with family, I will think of you too.  Happy Thanksgiving today.

I was just going to sign off for the day (for a bit) and saw your comment on my blog.

You are the sweetest!! I'm glad the little treasure found a perfect place in your home! You have touched my heart more then you will know.
Enjoy your beautiful table, and the love ones surrounding it.
PS Have a spirit beverage for me!

Chin, chin, my dear! Your table looks lovely, and oh my -- I spy some dining chairs that I think I'm falling in love with.

Thank you SO much for your comment on my post. Hudson Cradle is near and dear to me and it's the least I can do...I'm just happy to spread the word.

I hope your Thanksgiving was lovely.
