A Glance at our Thanksgiving Table

 Today's table centers around my grandmother's Johnson Brothers Friendly Village dishes...
 We love to use these around this time of year...
 At the center sits a beautiful pumpkin tea light luminary from my dear friend Karla.
 Today was so warm and sunny.  Mom's dishes sparkled, didn't they?
 About this time the house smelled divine, and my friend brought his mother, Mom's college roommate by to say hello.  She lives in a convalescent home, but he was taking her to his house for a family dinner.
 After lunch, I pulled a little trick I reserve for holidays.  I slipped off to my room and relaxed while my son and his friend helped with the dishes and cleaning up...
 Just a few moments of stolen rest soothed my tired but happy spirit...
 After lunch we played a game of Spinner.  My partner and I were not the "spinner winners" today.
 And I was off to decorate the kitchen after our guests of honor left...  This year's theme will be gingerbread!!!
But there's still time for a quick cup of tea if you choose to drop in....  Happy Black Friday!!  I'm internet shopping for this one..
