Place Setting Ideas for Thanksgiving

Hello again, Friends.  It's almost Thanksgiving!  I love this time of year.  The fall leaves, pumpkins and family gatherings.  I also love seeing all the beautiful tablescapes.  We have SO many at our Thanksgiving gathering that I am not able to do individual place settings.  I do love displaying some of my favorite Thanksgiving décor though!  I wanted to share  few  post I have seen with fabulous Thanksgiving tables.  First --go over @ The Fabric Shopper  These place settings are adorable!

Sorry I can't give credit for who did this one .. but I LOVE the long box filled with fall décor.  This one I might can do!


And for something more "fun" and not so elegant... Check this out:

And from; one of my personal favorites:  An outdoorsy Thanksgiving table.
Nestle candles in a bed of hazel nuts for your next dinner party. For an all-out natural look, include scattered leaves and beautiful winter gourds.

I hope you have fun decorating for your Thanksgiving dinner.  I'd love to see your pictures so please share!  See you soon!

A Woodland Quilt for Addison

Hello friends!  Happy HUMP day!  In case you have not heard, I am going to be a grandmother in February and  I am so excited.  It's a girl!  I couldn't wait to get started making her something.     I saw this material at and knew I had to have it.  It is designed by Me-O-my for SPX  Fabrics.   Addison's nursery is a woodland theme and I fell in love with these colors.  (The pictures do not do the fabric justice).  I decided a quilt would be the perfect thing to make her.   I sewed a strip quilt because that's my favorite type (and one of the easiest) to do.  I already had the blue and orange fabric on hand.  I used a light batting because it does not really get that cold here in Alabama.  It turned out to be a rather large quilt for a baby --  but she can grow into it.  I had fun doing embroidery stitching around the little critters.  I also had a good friend to embroider her name on one of the strips. (hmmm...wish list -- embroidery machine) She did a wonderful job!   I can't wait for Addison to be here so I can wrap her in this quilt and rock her all day! 





Thanks for dropping by!  Come back soon.
