~ Thankful ~

(My Thankgiving Mantel)

I am so thankful for the blessings in my life
My husband

Thank you so much friends for all of your kind words this past year
I am thankful for all of the new lifelong friends and "soul sisters" I have met through blogging
You know who you are ....

I made a simple Thankgiving table setting with mercury glass candlesticks (Tausha, I copied your look and went back to Target to buy the gold ones too!! lol)
Scattered dried hydrangeas and put some sprigs in glass bottles
I used my ruffled linen Christmas tree skirt again as a tablecloth
Hopefully nobody spills cranberry sauce on it!

My mantel has more mercury glass and scattered dried hydrangeas
A string of  Christmas lights give such a warm glow

Have a beautiful day with family and friends
