Farmhouse Table Vignette for Thanksgiving

Hey Friends, I hope you're having a wonderful late Fall weekend. It's been a gorgeous last few days with lots of sun, but the leaves are quickly falling and the lovely Autumn colors will soon be gone. I have a few more quick posts to share with you before Thanksgiving. They are mostly just a few areas that I've put together with quick and easy vignettes with some of my fine feathered turkey friends.

The farmhouse tabletop in the Garden Room has become my favorite spot to put together a grouping that lets me use my vintage wooden ice cream bucket with seasonal faux naturals. I like to keep my floral arrangements and faux flowers coordinating with what is currently seasonal. So right now I have my bucket filled with a mix of evergreen stems and Fall leaves. I see that all around me in mid November

I added my big resin turkey that I painted several years ago, and a small faux evergreen tree to my pumpkin. I found these smallish burlap grain sacks on Amazon so I layered one on top of my antique grain sack for a little interest. My little quail is perched to keep an eye on everything.

I've really enjoyed my vintage whitewashed wooden bucket
by just stuffing a bunch of random floral stems inside.
It doesn't take a lot of planning or arranging,
just grab some different elements and have at it.

I had to do some quick rearranging in here a week or two ago when we started having freezing temps. I brought in a couple of my ratty baker's racks and did some quick clean up to find a place for the live plants that I decided I wanted to save. I didn't keep any of the big Boston ferns, but I had some smaller varieties that I thought I could overwinter. The squirrels had gotten the shelves filthy and the paint is a mess, but I'm using them as is. 

Our older daughter was here this week for a day or two and we had such a wonderful visit. Time to sit and talk about what she's up to and drink hot tea, and laugh till we needed to wear Depends. I needed that. I've had some more health things going on. A combination of heart and Autoimmune junk which has caused me some breathing issues. It's been going on since summer, and I'm just now getting some understanding on it. Here's a selfie while we were out with the family for dinner. Sorry it's blurry, it's just a moment in time that is so precious.

p.s. hurray, we contracted with another landscaping group.
Let's say they are more professional than the last two.

see you Monday evening,

  2. Such a pretty centerpiece. Love that turkey and the picture of you and your daughter is gorgeous.

  3. Beautiful vignette on the table with that Turkey. GORGEOUS picture of you and daughter. Did you get my email?

  4. Your home looks beautiful, as do you & your daughter, Debra. Sorry to hear of mor issues creeping up. It sounds like you already have an understanding of what they're all about, and that's half the battle. Glad to hear you have another landscaper too.

    So happy you visited with your daughter and had a great time. She's beautiful and I love the photo.

    Happy to hear you found new landscapers. Hopefully everything goes smoothly.

    Love your table. Can't believe Thanksgiving is next week
