First November Tablescape

Just pulled out the
November Decorations
And I am trying to figure out how
I want things to look.
I will be changing every day. . .
I know I am not the only one that does that. Am I?
I have so many Thanksgiving decorations . . . .
 And I love all of my decorations!
Some have been with me for a long long time
I am delighted every year when I open the storage box
It is like renewing old acquaintances!
 I like how the sunlight comes through my dining room window
in the November. . .
In the afternoon it lightens everything up so much.
 This little Turkey has been with me a long long time.
I just love her!
I made her many years ago, when my children were young.
 I don't know if I could do that good of a paint job now.
I haven't done detailed painting for so long.
 My table cloth was also made by me
I really like it also.
It is so full of color and so many different leaf prints.
I make most of my table clothes and table runners
 I found this oil painting at the thrift store (DI)
several weeks ago.
It is signed by someone and dated 1979
It was only $5.00
I just couldn't pass it up!
It goes well on my wall in the dining room
during the Autumn time.
So here you have it my Table scape for Today
I am sure I will be changing it.
I move things around all the time.
I will be adding this to several Linky Parties

  6. Hi Karie...

    Well my friend, it looks like you are well on your way to a beautiful Thanksgiving! I love the tablecloth that you made...such pretty, vibrant colors! Ohh my...love that pretty oil painting of the autumn scenery...what a great deal at just $5! I also really enjoyed your little turkey...he's adorable! What a creative and talented lady you are! Thank you so much for sharing your pretties with us!

    Warmest autumn wishes,

  7. Great looking November tablescape. Thanks for joining my party. I need you to add my link to your post, please.

  8. Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your suggestions about the cabinet. I think I probably will leave it white as my dining room is sort of dark for lack of windows and the black may darken it. Love your Thanksgiving decor. I have a lot too. I love the colors of fall. The little turkey is darling. You are very talented.

  9. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment, I love your blog too, sure wish I had that creative gene you have!

  10. What a pretty tablescape!! I like all your fall touches and that oil painting was a find!

  11. Hi Karie,

    What a pretty table setting! It is always fun to get beautiful things for a great price that make our homes even homier, isn't it? I love going to thrift stores and garage sales.

    I really enjoy your blog. You have a lot of great stuff on here and I look forward to going through it all. Your granddaughters are so cute in their Halloween costumes!

    Take care,
