Gather Together. . .

Hello my friends,
 
in America November is the month that we GATHER together with family and friends and thank the good Lord for all of our many blessings.
 
Thanksgiving has always held a special place in my heart!

 

 
I love the story of the First Thanksgiving!  Click to read more.
 
Anything that promotes love and gratitude can not be bad!!
 
I want to give Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home a big shout out for organizing this for us.  She is a very busy and talented gal!!  Love calling her my friend!
 
 
If this is your first visit, or you are hopping over from
Debbees Buzz ; welcome!!
Her blog is so fun!
 

 
When we gather together, we love using our very best.  The turkey plates were a find at Home Goods a few years ago.  I love them!  The aqua goblets are Pioneer Woman.  Do you see the touches of aqua in the plates?

 
I chose the gold silverware because I like how they echoed the shade of the mini wreaths tied to the back of the chairs.

 
 I've had this sweet pioneer girl for years.  I bought her at a flea market.  Isn't her hand painted face so darling?
 
 
 
I stacked the extra plates at the end of the runner and topped them with some art work by my nephews wife, Julie.  She writes and draws children's books.  She does such a good job!
 
 
The centerpiece is my tiered tray.  I always love filling it with knick knacks.  Most came from thrift stores.  I never pass up a small.

 
Honeycomb turkey and pilgrim candles.  Also scored at a thrift shop.


 
This figurine is from Avon.  It's ever so sweet!!

 
I (unintentionally) have a large S&P shaker collection. : )
The vintage ones are my favorites. 
 

Simple table for a blessed Thanksgiving.


Here I am standing on a chair looking down.  Kind of a fun pic.
 


 
Hope you have a delicious Thanksgiving! 
Now hop on over and visit the other amazing bloggers.

Jann, there are always so many fun treasures to peek at in your posts, they truly are among my favorites! That pioneer doll is precious and I have an unintentional salt and pepper shaker collection, too! Ha! Darned dollar store. Happy Thanksgiving to you. I hope your day is filled with good food, family and friends. Feel good! Hugs!!

Debbee said...

Jann, I love those aqua glasses with your turkey plates. I would never have thought the two together and it works beautifully! Always enjoy seeing your thrift treasures. Especially like the turkey shaker --- something I've looked in vain for over many years. The turkey hunt continues LOL! And, what a precious piece of artwork from you niece-in-law. I'd bee hinting for one to represent each season or holiday so I could rotate them in frames. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Jann, your Thanksgiving decorating is so pretty. I love you plates. The turkey any colors are just beautiful. The little Pilgrim woman is adorable and welcomes you right in. Your niece-in-law has a great talent. That illustration is really wonderful. I know how it seems we start collecting salt and peppers unintentionally. But there are such great ones to be found, haha. I love that turkey and all of your smalls. I am hoping that you and your family enjoy a blessed Thanksgiving.

I can't believe you found the turkey plates at Home Good Jann, what a great find. I love everything the Pioneer Woman does so it's fun to see her drinking glasses on your table too. I hope you and your family have a fabulous time celebrating Thanksgiving together. It's such a special holiday. Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving, CoCo

Kim said...

It wouldn't be quite right if I didn't visit you at this time of year and have a peek at your gorgeous decorating for Thanksgiving, Jann. How wonderful it would be to sit at your table, drink in all the pretties whilst celebrating and being thankful. Oh, and I would love to chat with you whilst I enjoy a plump turkey. =) As ever, lovely Jann, everything sings happiness!

Rita C at Panoply said...

Jann, I'm so happy to see your post today on this blog hop! Your table is set so pretty, and I can certainly appreciate your comment about accidental collections as you have with the salt & peppers. ;) It's all part of our thankful journey.....being able to gather, set the table, and share the meal with family, and also sharing virtually with all our friends who love and appreciate the beauty. Happy Thanksgiving, dear one!

Hello Jann,

You never disappoint for this wonderful holiday. Love the dishes from Home Goods. Ours doesn't seem to carry as many dishes as it used to. Love the goblets with them it really makes them pop.

Always enjoy seeing your salt and pepper collection. Happy Thanksgiving

Love each and every adorable piece of Thanksgiving fun! And that hand drawn card is seriously amazing. She has quite the talent. Wish I could do that. Glad you could hop with us! It's all so cute. Happy Thanksgiving Jann!

Paula@SweetPea said...

I loved seeing your Thanksgiving decor, Jann. Your nephew's wife is really talented. Love her drawing that you have displayed. My mom has the pilgrim candles that you found at a thrift store. She's had them for year and years. In fact, I can't remember a Thanksgiving that they haven't been either on her table or as part of her decor.

Calypso In The Country said...

I love all your adorable thrift store treasures and the newer pieces like the dinner plates. You've done a beautiful job decorating your home for Thanksgiving! Enjoy the holiday!

So many fabulous treasures you've found. Love that pilgrim doll too. Happy Thanksgiving

Jeanie said...

I always love how beautifully you do your home and your holidays. We share the same turkey dishes -- we've had ours since I was probably nine! I love them. If I eat elsewhere, I take them with me (if the hostess allows!) They're perfect with those Pioneer goblets!

Shannon @ Belle Bleu Interiors said...

Jann, you have so many pretty Thanksgiving treasures! Your tablescape is beautiful! I love the aqua glasses paired with the turkey plates. It adds a pretty pop of color. I hope you have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!

Your pilgrim girl is so lovely and just the perfect thing for Thanksgiving! A tiered tray is a perfect centerpiece and I LOVE your turkey dishes! I hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving!

Thistle Key Lane said...

Tiered trays are the way to go for darling collections like yours. I keep telling myself that's what I need for fun holiday vignettes like yours! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Jann!

Crissy said...

Jann, what a sweet table setting! I love the knick knacks on your tiered tray. (I'm a huge fan of decorating tiered trays for each holiday.) The plates are so pretty. I had no idea Home Goods had plates like that, and I feel like I'm there all the time! Thanks for sharing your table with us, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Amber Lyon Ferguson said...

Jan those teal goblets look so pretty with the plates! I have the teacups and dessert plates in that pattern and I love them. You have so many cute treasures. I would love to stumble across a vintage honeycomb turkey and some vintage pilgrim candles. The pilgrim girl illustration is a wonderful touch!
Thank you for joining the hop. Happy Thanksgiving!

Debby Ray said...
