Happy Thanksgiving!

Good friends, wonderful children, fine wines and luscious food! The All-American dream holiday.

These were my "idea sketches" for the decorations! I like to make little, late nite thumbnail drawings of what I want to use &/or need to but at the market---I love when a plan comes together!

We had very good weather too, despite the weatherman's dire predictions of rain. Please! It never rains here on Thanksgiving, the only question is---will I need to wear a sweater or are shorts & flipflops gonna be OK?

The meal, I decided, is a throwback to olden days when huge families gathered and ate a LOT! Despite paring down my menu, I had too much food. We will eat leftovers for weeks!

I hope your holiday was joyous and bountiful too!
