I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving
for my friends,
the old and the new.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
These ceramic turkeys (salt and pepper shakers) were my Grandmother's. I am a grandmother myself, so
you know they are old. They were made in Japan.
The velvet pumpkins behind the turkeys were made by my daughter, Jennifer.
This cornucopia was my mother's. She got tired of it and gave it to me years ago.
I got this odd shaped pumpkin at Trader Joe's.
This is a vintage ice bucket. It is silver plated copper. Circa 1930. It is glass-lined.
I have candles in it, which creates a beautiful soft glow.
The gnarly gourds were bought at the Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg, Texas.
Gratitude is the memory of the heart.
