Dining Room November Decorations

I love November!
I really do. . .  I love the beautiful fall days
I love the colors of the season
I love Thanksgiving
My first child was born in November
In fact his birthday falls on Thanksgiving this year.
I have a special grandson that was also born in November.
I think November is a Celebration month
I celebrate my Gratitude for my many Blessings.
All month I write in my journal of every large and every small
thing that makes my life so happy and rich.
It is surprising how Gratitude has opened my mind and my heart!
Of course I celebrate by decorating!
Yes, I am still decorating
It is just a constant in my life. . .
 I love the oranges, golden yellow, browns, greens. . . . All the colors of the season
 I am having so much fun decorating my "sideboard"
my aunt and my cousin re-finished for me.
I think it looks so pretty with the oak in my dining room
 It has two areas that I am able to
decorate and do tablescapes
 I crocheted the doily several years ago.
It goes perfect on this sideboard.
 love,  love sunflowers
Did you know their little faces follow the sun?
And that is what I want to do. . . .
I want to follow The SON!
Mmmmm, I love sunflowers!
 The orange glass pedestal compost was a gift
when I got married
44 Years Ago.
It is a dear treasure to me
So there you have it my
November Decorations
for my Dining area.
There will be more to show later.
(Sorry for the long post and lots of pictures)
I will be linking this to the following Linky Parties:


  1. Love your pretty dining room decor, I like to decorate for Thanksgiving is almost becoming the forgotten holiday. My second son was born on the 23rd so we usually celebrate his birthday with Thanksgiving. I love your pretty orange compost dish...I love old dishes anyway. Come say hi.

  2. Very pretty and I do love the sunflower dishes. Fall is so lovely. Thanksgiving is around the corner

  3. I absolutely adore fall. Your dining room decorations are very inviting! I think I need to do a fall display now. Thank for stopping by Inside the Barbie Craft Room.
