Thanksgiving Decorating Part 1. . .

Today I'm featuring a few pictures of my Thanksgiving decorations. I always tweak things after everything is in its place, so don't be surprised if you see the same items in future posts in different places.

I have several Amish items that I use for Thanksgiving decorating. Amish crafts were very popular well over 20 years ago.

These little Amish women are perched on this cross-stitch picture that I stitched a lo-o-ong time ago.

More country touches. W-e-l-c-o-m-e to the kitchen table, sit down & enjoy your meal!

It's hard to read, but this cross-stitch picture says, 'Take Joy In Lifes' Simple Pleasures'.

I think I'm getting the urge to do a little cross-stitching again. Hey Santa, I want one of those fancy magnifying lamps for Christmas! :>)

Have a marvelous Monday, I'll check in with you tomorrow.

I like more light in the evening. The morning you have to get up whether it is dark or light. When it is dark after supper all I want to do is watch tv. Not very productive! You had some cute trick or treaters. We did not get any :( , ah rural life! I have visited Amish Country in PA a few times, lovely place.

What cute Thanksgiving things you have! I will take down my Halloween stuff tomorrow and just leave up the fall/harvest looking things for a week or so and then put up my Thanksgiving stuff. I can't wait, I LOVE Thanksgiving!

Happy day!
