Happy Thanksgiving - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  I hope all my American friends had a great one!

This week I'm sharing my Thanksgiving table.  



This year I used a burlap runner and I really like how it adds a little rustic charm to a elegant table setting! 


I found this large silver-plated tray at an estate sale last week for $5.00!  I polished it up and it now looks beautiful!   The greenery I cut off a tree during on my lunch-time walk on Monday. I'm so happy I cut it Monday because my ex-husband took a turn for the worse on Tuesday morning and I ended up working from home Tuesday and Wednesday this week. 

 I think we will have to put him in a convalescent hospital soon.  When he was diagnosed I told him he could stay with us until he's not able to take care of himself. He has a hospice nurse that comes twice a week and we both agreed he's getting to the point now that he shouldn't be left home alone.


We are very thankful that he's here for Thanksgiving although he's not really eating much these days.  







My daughter and I were trying to think of something sort of rustic to do for the place setting name cards and we ended up using champagne corks! I like the whimsical look of them!

Happy Thanksgiving Cindy - what a beautiful table you set up - and I'm thinking how thankful your daughter must be to have such a wonderful Mom - I'm so sorry to hear that your ex will need to be moved soon but wow - you've been just incredible.
Thanks so much for the party
Hugs from Montreal

It's a memorable day for you all. Your table is gorgeous. My husband is ill with ALS and I understand how giving someone a holiday is exactly what's needed. Bless your ex as he continues onward.
