Thanksgiving is this Thursday in the United States. I am scrambling as half of the family had made other plans. Now that's all changed and we will all be celebrating at Haven. I don't imagine that my table will actually look as elegant as any of these, but I can dream.

A Happy Thanksgiving to all those who'll be celebrating!

Please join Mary at Little Red House for more mosaics!

    Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  10. Beautiful set of photos, Vee. I loved the picture of the girl peeling the apple.

    It will be a busy week for all Americans. It doesn't matter how the table looks as long as the food is good and family gathers around it in thanks! :)

  16. Think I remember that you like to have everyone over. So that's perfect. Gotta' like to. Me, I don't, so I'm happy that another family member is doing the honors. :-)

    But regardless of where it's held in our family, 'Uncle A.' has to make the stuffin'! Always! Always! Always! :-)

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  17. Each Tablescape is a work of art. I especially liked the green, but a truly beautiful Thanksgiving table should be surrounded by family and loved ones...
    so it sounds like yours will be the most gorgeous of all:-)

  18. It's not the beauty of the table that is important. It's the love that surrounds it!

  20. Since we are all done with Thanksgving festivities over here...feel free to borrow anything you might want of my Thanksgving decor. If I lived next door, I'd come help you. Though you are likely scrambling with the change of plans...I'm sure it will be wonderful to have the whole gang together! Enjoy your week.

  22. To reply to your question...I'm considering doing some Christmas decorating inside, before Thanksgiving.

    Considering... :-)

    Plus, I see light at the end of the tunnel on my Blogger issue. Keeping fingers and toes crossed, on this one.

    Hope your wished-for good weather happens. We have 1 traveler coming home, too. :-)

  23. Vee,

    I am scrambling right along with you! We were supposed to got to my aunt's home but plans changed, family scattered and now I am putting together a meal for three with possibly two extra guests. How do you trim down Thanksgiving trimmings and still have everyone's favorite without eating left overs for a year? I suggested a restaurant but you would have thought I committed a cardinal sin. Oh dear, three pies, there goes the middle age spread again! I hope your home and holiday are a happy one dear Vee!

  30. I wanted to tell you that your post yesterday helped me so much. I read the whole thing and gave it much thought. It has helped me deal with this week.

  31. Vee, the love you have for your family, the tenderness with which you prepare the feast, the sweet way about you to see to everyone's needs and desires, the warmth of your cozy home and the heart of thanksgiving will be burning brightly in your fireplace this holiday - this Thursday. Your table will be set lovingly for the likes of royalty, and that's exactly how your cherished ones will view that feast spread out and prepared for them! It will be JUST BEAUTIFUL! You all will be gathered as family and be filled with thankful hearts and remembering those who've gone on. So glad plans changed and you're all going to be together! Nothing more you can ask for. All the rest is "vanity and vexation" anyway ~ as my precious FIL used to say.


    I hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful and may God pour His richest blessings upon you and yours and be especially close to you this year!

  32. Happy Thanksgiving, Vee. I hope that this year, being all together will provide some solace for your grandmother's absence.
    It's not the table settings that matter, it's the love around the table, and you are sure to have plenty of that.

  36. What a powerful poem you shared on Sunday, and the paragraph following! Yes! Stated so wisely and truthfully. I agree. We know so little of what His love is and what it means for us as His children! Isn't it fantastic how He meets us in our very need! Thanks for sharing those precious thoughts and I'll be coming back for them to ponder more!

  37. Oh Vee, I'm sure your table will be beautiful, and your celebration will be filled with happiness! Have a wonderful day!
    xoxo,
    Mary
