Happy Thanksgiving Day

A happy Thanksgiving to all. Just a quick, friendly hello on this Thanksgiving's Day. The Fall table in my dining room is Royal Doulton, "The Coppice" with light green and plum glassware.
We are off to mimi's for a Thanksgiving feast and then Cowboy football and the Longhorns to follow. The guys are in sports heaven with football and food.

November 26, 2008

This is my window sill above the kitchen sink. As you can see, I have several blue and white transferware pieces decorating the sill. I have just bought an old blue willow transferware tureen from my favorite shop. Of course, the lid is long gone! The placement of a violet plant in it seemed natural. The tureen was needing a place so here it is until a better place is found. My photo was lucky, for yesterday the sun was not shining on the tureen when I was trying to get a shot of the tureen and the lone violet blooming. All the violet plants around the little tureen are blooming! The top photo is of the other violets blooming and this photo was taken the day before. It does make a difference the time of day when photos are taken. The tureen was really the reason for the photo, for I was thrilled with the purchase.
