A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

A Thanksgiving Vignette...

At the thrift shop - we are well into Christmas 
as is common in the retail world.  
To serve my conscience and give the proper nod to Thanksgiving -
 I opted to do at least 1 display today for the special holiday.  
But when I scoured the shop for themed items to use - 
I could only find this one ceramic pilgrim couple...

So I worked with them best I could and was really happy with the result...

The rest of the displays I worked on were Christmas 
but I didn't get photos except for this one...

Within minutes of completing the Thanksgiving grouping - guess what sold? 
Yep - the little ceramic couple!
So now the display may not look much like Thanksgiving after all...
Hopefully we all express  some Thanksgiving every day anyway - 
holiday or not.
And have I mentioned lately that I am so thankful for you?  
Thanks readers!  ~Joyce

Having FUN reading your blog! We love MT.Gretna and wonder if you rent your
cottage? Also wondering where your shop is? Keep up the great work! Praying for your family, Barb

Hello Barb - I was unable to reply to your comment via email - so I'm hoping you see my comment. Please contact me via email by hitting the Joyce-Quilted Nest link (under my pic on the side bar). Then you'll see an email to click. Then we can discuss out cottage in Mt. Gretna. It is not open in Winter - just 3 seasons :) Glad you're visiting my blog! ~Joyce
