The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. - James A. Michener

Thanksgiving Past

Thanksgiving doesn't just come to our Kitchen!

It finds it's way into every nook and cranny.

Just like the gratitude we feel

For the rich and abundant blessings

We enjoy throughout the year!

You can see that our plates are not just for lookin'good

They are also for eatin'

With Pilgrims at every setting,

Hope this gives you ideas to use for your Thanksgiving too.  Watch for this years' Table Escape soon.

Your Thanksgiving decorations are wonderful! It must be so nice to go to so many areas of your home and see the lovely displays! Your TG tablescape is gorgeous! I really love those acorn plates and how you put a gift on top of the nuts in them. And the individual pilgrim S&P's are fabulous! Can't wait to see this year's!
