Pam, I'm so sorry about your Mother. Accidents are never welcome, but somehow when they happen during the holidays they seem even more traumatic. I'm glad she'll be okay.

I LOVE your Bordallo turkey plates! They set the tone for a wonderful Thanksgiving table!

Love your tablescape. The soup spoons are a great design, and I really like all the majolica green pieces. I still haven't posted my Thanksgiving table...this week. My schedule just never seems to mesh exactly with the rest of blog world...ah well, it all comes out in the wash. Thank you for inviting us for a peak at your holiday celebration. Hope that your mom continues to heal quickly. Cherry Kay

A lovely table! Sorry about your mother! Barb at the Antique Shop told me about your stopping by her shop and mentioning me. I am so glad you liked our little town -- it is a nice place to live . . . BUT . . . the next time you come to town, you MUST give me a call and we can share either tea or a lunch!!!! I'd love to have you stop by Linderhof. On my blog there is my email address -- so you can contact me by email and we can make arrangements! I would LOVE to meet you (and if your husband is with you, that's great too -- Jim loves to meet blogger friends husbands!!!!)

I am so glad that you liked FS and am glad that you found some treasures. I find treasures at Iron Star ALL OF THE TIME!!!! It's a great shop!

Please do let me know the next time you'll be stopping by my little town on the prairie.
