More Thanksgiving decorations

I really love Thanksgiving and like to decorate for that more than Halloween! GASP! Yes, it is true. So, before Halloween I start putting up fall decorations - nothing really Halloween at all, and then once it is over, I pulled out the Thanksgiving decorations. I even found a few more I just love - like these Pilgrims. I put the Decor Elements on a floating frame and a few autumn leaves between the sheets of glass.
I have been wanting a small entry table, but my entry really is too small. Well, I had made this autumn wall hanging several years ago and it hung below this little shelf. Then I said to myself, Self! You can hang that shelf in the entry - so I did. I love it. It's just right for this small entry area. But now I need to get busy and make my other seasonal wall hangings. It's on the to do list.
I went to my sister's this week and she has this incredible embroidery machine, and I made this gorgeous cross-stitched kitchen towel. Isn't it awesome? I love it. It took quite a while, but nothing like it would take to do it by hand. Thanks Kathy!

The Have mercy turkey and the other wood thingy is from years past. I had to re-glue them, but they have found great places in my home.

Anyway, I hope you like my Thanksgiving decorations. I'm pleased with all of them.

Oh Karen, I'm sure your house looks so lovely with all your Thanksgiving decorations. Are you having your family over for Thanksgiving dinner? I especially love the turkey asking for mercy. Too funny and sooo YOU!

I have no doubt your home would make a guest feel so "at home," Karen. Afterall, we tend to fill our homes with part of who we are. Since you are such a great person, your home must show just that. Lovely decor!
