November is quickly slipping away and I realized if I didn't do something quick, it would be time to decorate for Christmasand I would totally miss Thanksgiving.
don't really have any special Thanksgiving decor except my turkey
platter, but when I think of the month of November as a color ~ I think
of browns and white ~ a perfect time to pull out my brown transferware.
I have two sets of brown transferware, one set is dark brown and the other set is a rusty brown. They are mostly odds and ends pieces, so I don't use them for everyday use, but they mix and match well and dress up the hutch nicely. They remind me of the barren trees outside against the gray, cloudy skies.
I used a mish-mash of items from cotton plants to dried pussy willow branches leftover from spring. This lovely combination is a beer pot dug from the Victorian dumps of England and dried alium seed heads.
My volunteer gourds always look delightful in an old bird nest.
Vintage chippy embellishments always have a way of fitting in perfectly.
And the center piece of the hutch is my turkey platter, a thrift store find
from a couple years ago.
To me, Thanksgiving is the quiet time between the glory of fall's spendor and the busyness of the Christmas season. It is a time where I like to slow down, reflect, and give thanks for all God's goodness and blessings.
