Hello, I hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving. This was the first time, my table was not surrounded by my complete family (son, sister, mother and grandchildren). SAFETY FIRST!
Since, I do not know how to cook a Thanksgiving dinner for only 3 people (for just the girls and myself), I had the 20+ pounds turkey and all the trimmings. My oldest made her delicious yams, my youngest, who got “dolled” up for Thanksgiving dinner, made her homemade mini apple pies and I, made the turkey, baked macaroni and cheese, mash potatoes, stuffing, green beans; for only three people. YEESH! But, hey, I love leftovers.
In one of the pictures below, my youngest thought it was funny that I used a magnifying glass to read the meat thermometer. 🙂 I purchased this beautiful magnifying glass from Inspire Me! Home Decor for this very reason.
Love You Fall!
Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love the fall colors. The lawn colored with green, yellow, red and brown leaves and the warm breeze. We love to decorate the house outside and inside. The outside decorations is courtesy of my youngest, who also placed spiderwebs on the bushes. What was funny, watching the neighbors walk by, looking at the tree covered in “caution” tape; probably thinking the tree is damaged. LOL
I love all the beautiful Christmas tree decor, tablescapes & DIYs that’s on Instagram. The Influencers creativity is unbelievable! But, I’m just not ready to let go of the fall season. This year’s dining room fall tablescape is one of my favorite. I love how HomeGoods pumpkins accents my dining table and I want to admire it a little bit longer.
If you follow my blog, you may have notice when I love something, I rarely venture outside of that style/theme. I will find a way to incorporate new items while maintaining my style. What I am referring to is my love for pearls.
The Italian wine glasses, also purchased from Home Goods, are thick and gorgeous! This reminds me of a conversation with my daughter who ask if the wine glasses are crystal; pronouncing it “Cristal”; like the champagne.
I corrected her and pronounced crystal as “kristl”. She counters and pronounces crystal as Cristal. I explained Cristal is champagne. She explains she heard it on tv pronounced Cristal. I said they must have been joking or from another country. She was adamant and the doubt began to set in. I’m known to butcher the English language. This situation reminded me of a Tasting Room Clerk who mispronounced Petit Manseng, a wine variety, as “Petty Manseng”. OH VEY! So, I did what I do best, RESEARCH!
I allowed this girl to get me again. LOL
