Grateful Giveaway Recipient

18 comments
Last Christmas,  I was pleasantly surprised to be the winner of a great giveaway from Mary@ Home is Where the Boat Is. The giveaway was a sixteen piece dinnerware set of Mikasa Antique White Holiday Berries.  It is a beautiful pattern and although Mary is a hard tablescape act to follow I am giving it a shot to show my appreciation as the grateful winner.

Reflections on Previous Thanksgiving Meals

19 comments
As I started thinking about Thanksgiving coming up I realized I made pics last year and never posted them. Hope you will enjoy viewing our family meal and the pics might jumpstart your planning and decorating. My mind now is in the challenge mode of coming up with something different for this year's table.

Hotel Dieu~Beaune, France, the capitol of Burgundy. The exquisite burgundian tiles are spectacular.  Hotel Dieu was founded in 1443 by Nichols Rolin, the chancellor of the Duke of Burgundy, to help the needy. It was a small hospital until 1971. This medieval hospital is now a museum.
