Decor to Welcome Thanksgiving


Welcome Thanksgiving!  Let's begin a tour of seasonal decor as you come in the front door.  As might be expected upon entering a doll maker's home, you will be greeted by a sweet toddler.  She gets in the spirit of the holidays by changing her attire to reflect the season.  Now she is wearing a dress with a green velveteen bodice and a plaid skirt featuring the burgundy, green and gold colors of the season.












A narrow wall of the foyer displays a Jim Shore wall banner highlighting a pilgrim couple.   This banner was difficult to photograph due to the length  so I hope the detail comes through.  


This cute pillow came from Hobby Lobby.  I was attracted to the nubby background fabric that blends with the fabric of my favorite comfy chair.

This would be an easy project for the quilter who has a stash of scraps since the greeting is appliqued using a variety of colorful fabrics and trims.  






A whimsical turkey brings spirit to the kitchen counter.  Some metallic copper-colored ribbon has been wrapped around the pumpkin to give it a more polished look.














This carved pumpkin was also from Hobby Lobby.  I couldn't resist the sweet children giving thanks.
















The carved pumpkin placed along with candles, leaves and glass berries makes an elegant display on the dining room table.


Thanks for stopping by.  Please come again!

I love that carved pumpkin for thanksgiving. I used to collect dolls so I enjoyed seeing the sweet babies too.

That baby is so adorable in her Holiday attire! The long banner shows up nicely. I have a few Jim Shore pieces and love them.

Thanks for coming to the bunny Hop!
