81st Tablescape - Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.  A great Holiday for decorating - even better for Tablescapes....  As the first Turkey is baking in the oven and three loaves of chocolate, Amish Friendship Bread are cooling on the baking rack - I am posting my Thanksgiving Tablescape.....

Found these three pieces at Hospice Thrift Store last year - it has been on the table both years....and will continue to be a part of our Thanksgiving tablescape.

Can't help but love decorating for Thanksgiving... I mix/matched some salad plates.  These say "Count your blessings, each one"!

These are Royal Stafford, made in England.  Each a different scene....

No Thanksgiving tablescape is complete with out a set of Pilgrim salt/pepper shaker from Publix.  This set actually came from Goodwill - $2.06.

Gotta love these cute little turkey salt/pepper shakers.

These mums are from my garden - my husband purchased them for me our 1st Thanksgiving in the home, (three years ago).  They have bloomed every year beautifully, this year I had to cut them and make them a part of our table.

This is a door wreath I found at Goodwill, I place it on the buffet in a plate stand - a reminder  - In Everything - Give Thanks!

As always - thanks to Susan at BNOTP for sponsoring Tablescape Thursdays. Remember: "Around the world - - life is best around the table". Thanks for visiting; please leave some encouraging words!
