Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on our blessings.  I am very grateful for so many things.  A loving husband, a good family, special friends.  But I am most grateful to God for the mercies He shows towards me every day.

So at Thanksgiving, it really isn't about the turkey and food.  It's about giving Thanks. To our Creator who has given all things for us to enjoy.

I started collecting the Friendly Village china several years ago.

 Each piece was purchased from our local department store at the end of Christmas sale.

 The day after Christmas, the department store would mark down all of their clearance 1/2 price.

Which had allowed me to collect quite a nice table setting.

Our little Pilgrim was carved by a friend many years ago.

I hope your table will be surrounded by friends and family.

Wishing you a Happy and blessed Thanksgiving!

Enjoy your tablescapes. I chose to use my Friendly Village for Thanksgiving this year too. A friend of mine gave me 4 place settings and we use it all year round. It reminds me of life in the past- perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Happy Thanksgiving to your family as well.
