Thanksgiving Banners

Day 8 of Thanksgiving . . .
I'm thankful for "freedom from want".
This iconic image of Thanksgiving Day, by Norman Rockwell, was actually one of four prints in his "Four Freedoms" series, which was inspired by President Franklin Roosevelt's 1942 "Four Freedoms" speech. This painting is entitled  "Freedom From Want." March 6,1943.

This painting is entitled "Freedom From Want." March 6,1943.
I love this iconic image of Thanksgiving Day, by Norman Rockwell. It was actually one of four prints in his "Four Freedoms" series, which was inspired by President Franklin Roosevelt's 1942 "Four Freedoms" speech.  
*********************************************
I got crafty yesterday making 2 banners for Thanksgiving.
I found the free printable letters on Pinterest.
FREE Printable Letter Banners at Shanty-2-Chic.com! Print a banner for any holiday, party or room for FREE!!!  LOVE these!!
Here's the "thankful" banner I made for the mantel.

I also made a "gather" banner for the dining room.
The letters were aged by rubbing on brown shoe polish with a paper towel.
After seeing how great the shoe polish worked I think I'm going to do the same on the "thankful" banner.

Can you believe Thanksgiving is 2 weeks from today?
