Greetings, dear reader!

Today I am beyond thankful for a warm home to share with family and friends!

Although we are going to spend Thanksgiving with our kids in Knoxville, I have come up with a few easy ideas for the Thanksgiving table...I'll take these along for daughter-in-love's table!

First is an easy, simple-yet-elegant table runner made of burlap! I just love the texture, and if you, like me, don't sew or don't wanna, you can glue gun the satin ribbon to each side and then add bows on the end!

And how adorable is this pumpkin as an ice bucket? Since my "most requested item" to bring to family gatherings is  "drinks", bringing the decorative cooler is a personal touch that I can add! (Reasons for this family tradition found here)

And isn't this a fun and easy way to add a festive touch to your door? And I don't know about YOUR family, but a wreath made of NUTS seems incredibly apropos for my family. :-)

Again, glue gun to the rescue! LOVE IT!

What are some of YOUR family traditions?

More soon!

I have always wanted to make a nut wreath, but all that glue!!!! Your tags arrived this evening! I can not wait for the ladies to get yours especially! OMG you are my paper hero! Too cute for words! Thank you also for the little tags. What a fantastic idea! I literally could call my craftroom the Palace II. I love each and everyone of my Paula crafts! Thank you again so much for participating.
