Happy Thanksgiving

I’d like to wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving Holiday and offer travel prayers for those of you who are traveling or have family traveling.  I’m posting a picture of my table that I’ve set for the holiday.  I used this same set up last year, sure hope my family isn’t tired of it.  I watercolored pumpkins and placed them on enamels jars that are filled with Apple Pie scented candles using the Autumn Harvest from from Stampin’ Up!  I made little place cards using a retired Stampin’ Up! set entitled Autumn’s Blessings. 



  • Stamps: Autumn Harvest; Autumn’s Blessing
  • Paper: Old Olive, Choc. Chip, Really Rust, Watercolor Paper
  • Ink: Choc. Chip, Barely Banana, Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie, Brocade Blue, Old Olive, Black Staz-On, Only Orange; More Mustard
  • Accessories: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Copper Cord, More Mustard Grosgain, Old Olive Organdy (wide); watercolor brush, crop-a-dile, large copper eyelet (on the tag)

 Thanksgiving Blessings to you all!

  1. Your table is beautiful!!!!! I would love to do something like this, but it would just go to waste with mine or DH’s families. I want to have a luncheon or tea for a few of my friends sometime and this would be the perfect thing to do. They would appreciate it.
    Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving to you and your family!
