It’s almost impossible to imagine that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Can you believe it? Neither can I!
Hubby and I decided to host the holiday in our weence little cottage, but we have a small problem…where do we put everyone? Our dining room table is from the civil war era and pulls out to be about 8 ft. long only there’s no span for the center.
Ah! My dining room table is a tale in itself that maybe one day I’ll share with you all. It’s the prettiest little thing made of the richest cherry wood with a huge base and scrolly legs.
I just ran away for an hour or two, but now I’m back. Babbling about Thanksgiving made me realize that hubby was going to build a mock span for the table so I had to leave to help. (I just inserted these last two pictures…not intended for this post…and in case you’re wondering…no! That is not dust you see on my beautiful scrolly legs, it’s just a sprinkling of faerie dust so you can see the detail a little bit better) ;-).
Miss Emily Pumpkinhead, who came out of hiding for Halloween decided to stay and visit for Thanksgiving as well.
And I decided to leave all my fun jars from Miss Vanessa’s Halloween party too. I thought that since they weren’t very scary and the colors are all “autumny” I would enjoy them a little longer.
It will be interesting to see how the wee ones do since there will be 2-3 children under the age of 4. My cottage is not what I’d call “child proof.” The exact opposite in fact. It’s been filled with cloches, glass jars, and every other breakable thing imaginable.
So, until Thanksgiving is over, I may be holding my breath ;-O!
Well, I think I’ve babbled long enough so I better get back to work…I have an entire cottage to clean, but I’ll be singing a merry tune as I’m dusting away the cobwebs and sweeping up the faerie dust. Oh! Or maybe I’ll listen to my favorite Christmas music.
Whatever you have planned for this weekend I hope it’s lovely!!!!
