Well tomorrow’s the big day for all the turkey roasters! I’ve gotta say I’m pretty nervous! I’ve been going over and over all the recipes I collected for properly cooking the turkey, the gravy and the stuffing, just hoping for good results. I don’t mind if it isn’t amazing, that would be great, but really I am just aiming for cooked!!! LOL
I’m just the pie baker usually, but this year it’s the whole sha-bang. The pies are in the oven as we speak, so the easy part is getting done today! Our guests arrive tonight and we’re all excited and ready for the visit.
I thought I would share the rest of my living room decorating with you today while the pies bake.
So as I was going for a “winter lodge” feeling, I decided I needed to make some sweater pillows. I dug through salvation army sweaters until I found the perfect ski lodge looking red sweater.
I tried to keep the table behind the love seat simple. That is really hard for me! I have so much Christmas decor, and my inclination is to use everything because I love Christmas “nick nacks” as my husband calls them. Hehehe
I wasn’t very successful about using less in the dinning room, as you will see in later posts, but the living room feels fairly simple to me. Well as simple as I am able to go!
The coffee table got the galvanized pan with a faux boxwood candle wreath and a couple candycanes. I filled the apothecary jar with some jingle bells.
I kept the base of the fall vignette, and just added some bottle brush trees, and my winter sign.
I found this wonderful junk shop in Urbandale that also holds auctions once a week. I popped on their auction site a couple weeks ago and saw these chicken wire lanterns.
I won them for a dollar a piece! What a bargain! I added some greens and berries and put electronic candles in them. They look so sweet glowing at night on our stairway.
I’ll be back next week to share the rest of the decking of the halls.
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
May God continue to bless you and your family as HE blesses our family every day.
