My Thanksgiving table

While my fearless turkey frying husband braved the elements I ran up to my shop and grabbed a few things to set our table before our guests arrived. I have a collection of vintage pink glassware given to me by my mom that I have always wanted to pair with some brown transfer ware, which I happened to have at the shop.
I have been secretly hoping it would not sell before Thanksgiving so that I would have the pleasure of setting my table with it. I separated each dinner and dessert plates with one of my own ruffled salad plates.
Each place setting is then topped with a pink Fostoria Jamestown sherbet.
For a quick centerpiece I placed a trio of pitch pots on a bed of fall wheats and grasses. I wanted to have some mini white pumpkins spilling out then sprinkle it with cranberries but I forgot the pumpkins, oh well, have to enjoy the turkey without them, twist my arm.
See that cute little turkey in a vintage ironstone dish? He's made out of butter!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! On to Black Friday and the weekend (I am a retailer after all :-), our hours this weekend are:

Friday 8am to 5pm
Saturday 10am to 5pm
Sunday Noon to 4pm

To warm you up while you shop "the farmhouse" we'll be serving up steaming cups of Danish Christmas Coffee!!

Regarding the carved turkey, doesn't everyone know how to do this? Lol, j/k, my mother-in-law brought him, now she might tell you she carved him but I'm pretty I saw her taking it out of a box from Giant Eagle (local grocery store).

I spotted the turkey right away and thought "oh my gosh that is butter"! Love it.
I recently found your blog via another (don't recall which one) but I love it. I think I will have to do some online shopping with you. I saw the area code and recognized that your are located in CA. I am here in cold MN.

Karen, welcome! Thanks for visiting! I WISH I was in CA, I am right there with you in the chilly part of the country, Ohio, 19 degrees right now, ick!
