Thanksgiving Decor 2019



I'll start in the kitchen dining area at the credenza.  I put down a runner runner that has pumpkins on each end.  

 I used this white pitcher with pumpkins on it and added the dark grass to it to tone down the look a bit and to pick up on some of the darker brown colors seen throughout. 

 Same farmhouse pumpkin decor.  I've gotten a lot of mileage out of that!

 I brought out my white turkey with sponge brown accents.  I liked how the white in the turkey picked up on the white in the pitcher.  The candle holder was a find at Hobby Lobby and I felt it unified everything.  The turkey dish is part of a 4 pc. set I think from Williams Sonoma.


Now onto the living room fireplace mantel...
 I brought in my MacKenzie Childs turkey and a pair of pheasants.

 This is how it looked during the fall and Halloween season. I took away a couple of pumpkins and rearranged the others.

 The pheasants were acquired from Pier 1 several years ago.  I like making it look like they are foraging.

 After I showed you my Fall mantel I got this owl.  It was centered under the picture but I decided to move it off to the right and raise it on a candlestick as though it was perching from a tree.

 The turkey is set lower as though it were on the ground.



I took some evening photos too...




Wishing You a Happy Thanksgiving!

Brr....and Cracker Barrel White Rooster

Yep we got hit with a lot of snow day after Halloween.  Thankfully it's all melted and though we are experiencing weather in the mid 30ยบ's it's been mostly rain since then.

Today..the Japanese Maples are still hanging on.



I shot these pics through my window.

This is my Thanksgiving Cactus in full bloom.  It was outside all summer in the shade and I brought it in and soon it was budding out. 

I planted my Amaryllis today.  There are three Alfresco and two Elvas bulbs planted.  Hoping they'll bloom at a similar time but either way it will be fun to see them bloom!


Alfresco

                                                                  Elvas
Now the White Rooster
 Lastly Cracker Barrel has the white rooster back in stock.  I've posted my rooster several times which frequently is followed by inquiries of where I got it or if I'd sell mine.  So here ya go!  It's nearly identical.  It has a more modern white glazing and the head is straighter than mine but basically it's the same.
So that's a wrap! 
How's the weather in your neck of the woods?

Halloween With Whimsy!


Welcome to my Halloween with Whimsy tablescape!

 Once again Zelda the "very chic good witch" joins us!
The candelabra and witch were both from Pier 1 last year and the year before.
I featured her last year in my Halloween Carnival found "here".

 I got this lighted lantern (last year) with sparkly gold that swirls around.  

 I decided to show you my table in steps as I built it.

 I'm not 100% sure but I think I got these spider and skull & metal chargers at Michael's a few years back.

 There are four different plates on top.

 The transferware plates are from Lenox and they're called Haunted Village.  I got them last year.  I used a creamy white plate with a black border underneath.




 The spider napkin rings were a find at Home Goods and are by Cynthia Rowley.  I find her stuff to be made very well.  The napkins are from TAG a few years back.





Now for some nighttime photos!





  I'm glad you could join me for my Halloween With Whimsy tablescape!
