My family said let's move some stuff...make room for the platters.
Oops I need this dish for Linda's cranberry salsa.
My little centerpiece, with grocery store roses and boxwood, not too bad.
The candles are lit.
Walmart pumpkin plates
1 part Butter shots
She was so right it was a hit indeed!
OK, Here is what I am the most Thankful for! MY FAMILY and all the joy and love and yes, heartaches, for all the ones we missed today. Our Mom's Big Ed...no one carves a turkey like him, hubby's Nana, she always sent the centerpiece, my Mom, yes I made the Lemon Meringue pie and the Indian Fudge. Ed always loved Eggnog. Grampa made Pumpkin pie for Jake. Hubby's Mom.....I did the dishes alone, well hubby helped, but I missed you. We all missed you, there used to be twenty-two for Thanksgiving and today there were seven and the rest were here in spirit. I really think this is a day all about family. So now after three days of cooking
I am going to go pour another Pumpkin Martini, call my Aunt in Ohio and rest my tired feet, because I still need to get the turkey carcass cleaned up. Oh and do that one last dish~
P.S. Tomorrow I start cleaning up all the Harvest and get ready for CHRISTMAS! Wahoooo
P.S.S. Don't forget Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan @BNOTP

Other bloggers had items they loved from their makeup table...well, I love my makeup table. Years ago I found it in a second hand shop. I knew the owners and they lived on Main St in our town. I was driving by one day and saw it in the back of their pick up truck and I just knew I wanted it. I drove to the shop later that day to ask about it and it was still in the back room. So I have had it for about fifteen years and still love it!
I love my families reaction when I make Apple Pancake...the grandchildren were here so we needed 3.
I love a beautiful sunset viewed from our backyard.
