Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I wanted to share a quick post with you of my Thanksgiving table. My family and I had a really nice Thanksgiving together and even though we are not near the rest of my family we were able to have some Skype time with them. We also got to set up the Christmas tree..minus the decorations, I still need to pull them all out! Now I am so ready to go to bed but I wanted to get this post up before I crashed. So here are some pictures of our Thanksgiving!
I made the table runners last minute out of burlap and muslin.
I painted my little orange pumpkins a gray blue color to match the big pumpkin better and then painted the letters on them followed by some wax.
The white pedestal below is another project I just did. The pedestal was a silver aluminum so I painted it with ASCP in old white followed by some brown glaze. I love it now! The lanterns are a new purchase from Willow house..I really like those too.
Here is my thrifty find pitcher and feathers. My Grandmother loved peacock feathers, they were always scattered about her this a little reminder of her :)
I painted the white pumpkin with more ASCP and added glaze to that as well. Not bad for a buck! 
Here we all are...there is always someone who has to make a silly face, it wouldn't be a family pic without it! 
Happy Thanksgiving from our Family to Yours~



  1. What a pretty tablescape you created! I like how you were able to change the color of your pumpkins with paint. That's a clever idea. I spied a little owl in the mix too. He sure is cute. Glad that you had a nice Thanksgiving. I spent mine at my sisters house, so I didn't have to even set a table this year. Now it's time to pull out all the Christmas stuff. I will get started this weekend.

  2. I like your use of different colored pumpkins on the tablescape--so festive! (My favorites are the grey painted with the Thanks letters.)
