It's November, and we are so close to Thanksgiving, so a tablescape is definitely in order. This table is comprised of vintage, new and reinvented, which is always my favorite.
This is a lovely lantern I picked up at Hobby Lobby, it is metal and I really like the glass panels with the Tudor characteristic, very charming. Inside, I put 2 flameless candles inside along with moss and a little white pumpkin.
A couple of vintage turkey finds that I spray painted white. Take a look at the before below.
Pretty cheesy, right?
No more cheese! ;) Use moss to help steady wobbly candles.
A turkey container, that wasn't too bad, yet just not my thing...
...turned into my thing with glossy spray paint. I thought I was going to make a little arrangement in it, but decided to use more moss and a pumpkin and keep the focus on the gobbler.
These place mats were my Mom's...gosh, they have to be 50+ years old, I remember them being on the dining room table growing up (you know, a few years back). They are really neat...woven, fringed and reversible. Some of the flourishes appear black in the photos (at least on my monitor), but it is a really deep hunter green.
Plain white Gibson dishes....I bought these to go in my booth but couldn't resist doing a table with them first.
My turkey friends again.
The napkins are new from Target from the 'Threshold' Line. I think the new plaid and old damask looks fantastic together. For place card holders, I used a small pine cone and cut a leaf shape from book paper and hand wrote names.
I hope this gives you some ideas you can use on your table!
I had chemo on Monday and it wasn't too bad and ONLY ONE DAY!!! I won't have it again for 21 days! I did go to sleep immediately after I got home, but still no nausea and vomiting (knock on wood). The neuropathy is still pretty bad in my hands (which is why this is short and sweet)...the doctor is hoping that it will fade with a little more time and I need to keep taking the neurontin. Thank you for the emails and suggestions on coping with the condition, you guys never cease to amaze me with your helpfulness.
I am working on getting my booth ready for Christmas so be looking forward to seeing that. Because of chemo, I wasn't able to 'shop' as much this summer, so I haven't found a ton of Christmas....so I've been making things. Hopefully, people will enjoy the handmade aspect along with the vintage things, I know I do.
I hope to do at least one more tablescape outside before the leaves completely drop. I'll talk to you soon! Thanks for being here.
