Right after Halloween, I took down those decorations and put up the Thanksgiving ones (what few I have) because this time of year always starts to fly by at an alarming rate. Time itself is going by too fast as it is! We're still not sure what we're doing for the day itself....there are a few options and we need to figure it out soon. I'm sure at some point that weekend, we'll do our own turkey feast here at the house, if not on the actual holiday itself.
I've had to buy fall/Thanksgiving themed decorations whenever I've seen them, cause they are hard to find. Everything is either Halloween or Christmas.
I think I did this beaded cross stitch the last year I was in Washington, so 2010.
I took the 3 Halloween figurines out and added the turkeys and cornucopia ones.
I love paper honeycomb decorations. Very vintage. My grandmother always sent these kinds of things to me when I was little. I remember the pastel honeycomb Easter eggs. Of course being a kid, I played with them until they were trashed at the end of the holidays.
I've had these waterglobes for quite a few years; pretty sure they came from the Fred Meyer in Bonney Lake. This was the first time I noticed that they are music boxes. The one on the left plays Amazing Grace, the one in the center plays Santa Claus is Comin' to Town and I don't recognize the song that the right one plays.
As much as I love Canada, I don't think I'd ever be able to adjust to having Thanksgiving in October and no holiday at the end of November. It's my fave holiday, more than Christmas.
