One Holiday At a Time

I love decorating for Christmas, but I always like to give Thanksgiving its due.

The cabinet in the entry has been cleaned out and organized

just in case someone opens it during the holidays.

When we designed the plate racks for the dining room, the large yellow platter was the measurement for the height - it was my mother's and I love seeing it on display.

I laugh because I don't think she ever used the platter - it simply sat on the top of the refrigerator for my entire childhood.

We're still waiting to hear if the guest room will be occupied at Thanksgiving,

but it is ready.

I could not bear to put away the Halloween cat I purchased on sale last week so she's waiting to greet any guests.

I got in the Thanksgiving mood by making a pie.

I have been seeing gorgeous pies on Instagram so I gave it a try.

I am responsible for pies on Thanksgiving and I like how my version turned out - fortunately the neighbors helped us eat it.

And now, for a dose of reality - this is what the guest room often looks like since it doubles as my creative space.

I hand quilted 3 stockings for KC's family and today I need to embroider the names because I'm running out of time.

I hope you are enjoying the lead up to Thanksgiving.
