Happy Monday and Happy Thanksgiving Week.
Isn't it funny how salt and pepper shakers come in every shape and size, they are fun, whimsical, pretty and then there is practical. These two Patriotic sweeties I won from Cindys Blog Retro Rivival
Cindy blog is all about vintage (I love vintage) she sews and creates aprons, she also shares with us her vintage finds and how she re purpose's them. If you have not meant Cindy yet please stop over for a visit. I know you are going to love her blog, just like I do.
There are salt and pepper shakers shaped like fruit, I have apple salt and pepper shaker's that sit on apple tree leaves.
Then there are animal salt and pepper shakers, these turkey's are so cute and sit in a basket on the dinning room table.
Of course there are the pretty ones, these pink rose salt and pepper shakers match my china.
I also have these very tiny salt and pepper shakers for one....they sit beside each place setting so you don't have to say please pass the salt the pepper...you have one for yourself.
Practical indeed, I have two sets of these that match my everyday set of dishes for 24.
More practical and everyday salt and pepper shakers we use.
There is only one of these, as time goes by some things are broken and only one survives. This Crystal shaker belonged to my Grandma.
The most vintage of all is this hand painted salt and pepper shaker that is well over 100 years old. I love the hand painted roses and the gold tops. Just look at all the holes these are a bit hard to tell what is the salt and witch one is the pepper. I love these, they belonged to my Great Uncle's Mother.
November is the time to gather the family and friends to share dinner, share laughter and stories of loved ones that have passed. We bring out the turkey platter that has been in the family since I was born.
We hang up a few decoration. A Simple Wreath that anyone can make, I put this one together in less than 30 minutes.
Bring out the candles to lite on the table.
The turkey table runner and a basket full of pumpkins, chickens and turkey's all help to celebrate the day of thanks and giving.
Gary and I are thankful for our family for the ones who have passed that have taught us so much. The ones we will always carry with in our hearts forever. Even through they are not with us in body we know they are with us in spirit.
Thanksgiving is also a day of hope and celbration to bring family and friends together around a table to hold hands and pray before the meal to thank God for all he has givien us.
We are thankful for you are dear frinds, who read our blog and leave us your kind words of wisdome.
May your thanksgiving be bright and happy and may your hearts be full.
We will be missing someone very dear this year at our table, but WE know she is with us, beside us and holding our hands during prayer.
Wishing you all love this Thanksgiving,
Elizabeth and Gary
