Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!
This week I know many of my friends in the U.S. are getting ready for Thanksgiving next week so I decided to re-share my very non traditional Thanksgiving table I did a few years ago.
I found these turkey candy dishes and turkey plates at Marshalls a few years ago and fell in love with them!
I used the turkey candy dishes as soup bowls! I remember seeing Martha Stewart do this a very long time ago and I loved this idea so when I found these for a really good price I bought 4 of them.
These blue turkey dishes were perfect for my blue home! They are traditional because of the turkeys but very non-traditional because of they aren't the usual autumn colors.
Unfortunately, I won't be using them this year because we are going to my dad's house for Thanksgiving and my brother is making dinner. My brother does cook an amazing Thanksgiving dinner though!
Thanksgiving just isn't the same since my mom passed away though. I have such wonderful memories of my mom getting up early and cooking her traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Her birthday is this Saturday (Nov. 17th) and she's been on my mind a lot lately! It's been about a year and a half since she passed away and I sure do miss talking to her! I feel so thankful to have had such a wonderful mom!
Happy Birthday Mom! I know you are watching over me!
