Out of ideas……Can you help??


thanks greetings

I am hosting Thanksgiving Dinner here for the first time in three years, and I am at a loss for a table centerpiece, settings etc. Maybe it’s because I got rid of so many “things” that I used to have when we moved form Back East. (And some were “lost” as well) Maybe it’s because we are in a new setting here in California and it just “feels different'. Maybe I am just over thinking it and just need to be simple in my thinking and save my energy for Black Friday Shopping with my girls! lol Oh I don’t know. But I would be open to some ideas if anybody would like to share.  One thing is for sure, I am going to have to empty my hutch of all it’s contents to set the table. It seems like I just tweaked it to look nice, and now I have to empty it.

Well that’s ok, because as soon as Thanksgiving is over I will be putting those dishes away and I will be getting out my Christmas dishes ! I Can’t wait!! Everything is still boxed up, so it will literally be like Christmas opening all of the boxes and remembering what I have. We moved in February and things went from being out at Christmas to boxes ready for moving. Also I was sick for a few months, so most of the packing was done by my hubby and son (I so appreciate all that they do for me, they are wonderful), sooooo…. I really don’t know what I will find it the “boxes”.  I do however have a couple of my Christmas mugs waiting in my hutch to take out.

You see  I had four of these mugs that belonged to my mother and when she passed away I inherited them. When we moved form NH and all of our extended family, I gave two to my younger sister and told her to text me and we could use our mugs to have coffee together even though we were 3000 miles away.


I also haven’t forgotten about a giveaway. I almost have it all together. I will be back in a few days to share it with you. What I do know is that I need to expand my followers, so it will be a giveaway including sharing my blog. Haven’t figured that out yet. But anyway it will be something nice, only for a few days and will be shipped as soon as possible so that the winner can use it for Christmas.


I have had many bloggers that I have followed and commented on for a long time say they didn’t know I had a blog??!! hhhmmm Maybe I am doing something wrong??! Again- I need some more help, and ideas. Thank you all that do follow, I truly appreciate your thoughtfulness and help and support that you have given me so far. There are so many wonderfully talented and special people out there and I count it a real joy for having gotten to know them.


It is the little things in life that bring the most joy. I am so thankful for family and for the life God has given me.. How about you?

happy thanks

Wishing you all a happy Thanksgiving!
