No Place Like Home

We moved into our current home September of 2018 and we were so thankful for all the help we had from our children. We moved from the big city to the country.

I’m joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for a weekly blog carnival called No Place Like Home. Here’s an explanation of what it involves…

So, I will get the party rolling on Monday, November 23. Like other years, everything pertaining to Home is welcome… Cooking and baking, recipes, antiquing, arts and crafts, crocheting/knitting, quilting/sewing, collections, floral arranging, home decor, homemaking tips, hospitality, refinishing furniture, tea time, tablescapes, thrift shopping, etc….Maybe there’s a new baby in the family or you have a new fur baby you would like to introduce us to. They are welcome too! Anything and everything which makes your HOME more enjoyable to come HOME to, for your family, your friends, and yourself. 

So on this first Monday of the party I’m going to share  a few Thanksgiving tables from the past. Our Canadian neighbors celebrated Thanksgiving several weeks ago. This is Thanksgiving week in the United States. Thanksgiving day is Thursday November 26th. I won’t be hosting Thanksgiving at our Country Bungalow this year but we will be celebrating with family. The following tables are from our previous home.

Not exactly sure what year the table collage above is from but I know it’s in our Kenmore home and not our current home.

Thanksgiving 2019 and our Grandson’s first Thanksgiving.

And our granddaughter is a pro already with putting the marshmallows on top of the candied yams!

The First Thanksgiving 1621~Historical America, Homer Laughlin China Co., Made in U.S.A. I found this platter at a thrift store.

Thank you to Sandi for hosting No Place Like Home.

For those of you who live in the U.S.A. what are your plans for Thanksgiving? It will look a lot different for many of us but it can still be filled with gratitude, love and joy.
