Plenty Thankful

In my attempt to give Thanksgiving its due,
I thought I'd share a vignette I put together on my vintage blue dresser.
{Are you getting the idea that I love this dresser?}


I kept this vignette in very muted tones. 


I like the way the muted tones look against the chippy blue paint.


Of course, you can't have a Thanksgiving vignette
without a little turkey, now can you?


I've been visiting so many of you
and there seems to be a general consensus
throughout blogland...

...there is plenty to be thankful for!

Beautiful, Gina. I love the paper crinkles for a turkey nest;-) I'll have to look for a decorative turkey to add to my pumpkin decor. I'm glad we have an extra week after Thanksgiving before December to get the Christmas decorating done. Have a wonderful week!
Blessings,
Nici

I like grouping the same colors. That's a great turkey.
YES, we all have alot to be thankful for. Even when times are rough there are things we can find that we are thankful for.

This vignette is anything but a "Turkey". I love the subtle color scheme and those lacy drapes always make your photos so pretty. You are absolutely right, there is SO much to be thankful for!

I love that dresser too and if you lived next door it might just go missing!!! Your vignette is great and the curtain behind makes for wonderful pictures. I finally got Halloween put away and Thanksgiving up (probably just because we were having a party and I would have been embarrassed to still have Halloween up!)
