This was my very first Tablescape
in blog land!

I was scared to death to put up a tablesetting.
My photography has gotten a little better but not much.
Since nothing was purchased specifically for that table and most of was bargain priced when purchased, I am posting this for The Thrifty Groove's Thrifty Tablescape Party as well as Sunday Favorites.

Well, I have certainly enjoyed my first two weeks in your world.
Thanksgiving is a special time of the year
Of course we all know that.
It is special this year because I have made so many new friends. I wish each of you a blessed Thanksgiving
Come, let's go into the Dining Room
Everything I am using can go into the dishwasher
We are having a casual dinner and
we will be entertaining
my daughter and two grandsons from Illinois
.I am starting with an inexpensive tablecloth with fall colors and leaf pattern
A natural woven charger and simple plate
Layered with linen napkins, everyday salad plate,
decorative leaf plate and covered soup bowl.
No pumpkin soup here, we're serving
Ladle is a treasured piece
Of course we are serving iced tea and
with turkey, we will also offer white wine.
You saw portions of the centerpiece at MM
Susan probably got a better deal on
her black version of this flatware
Now just look around
The quality is terrible, I am learning.
Had to trash most of the darker shots
I am preparing for Thanksgiving but
these next pics are TOOOOO spooky!
Does anyone remember the movie "Wicker Man"?
Is a visitor peeking in the window?
