Gather Together Thanksgiving Country Table

The U.S. Thanksgiving holiday will be here in 2 weeks.  This year my table inspiration is a vintage tapestry table scarf with a primitive country print. It reminds me of Grandma Moses a little (American folk artist, 1860 – 1961). It has a very old-time feeling.  I found it for little money in May at the thrift store. I knew immediately it would make a great basis for my Thanksgiving table this year.

Blue & Yellow Summer Table

It is so hot and humid here in Florida. I’m already looking forward to a slight cool down in the fall.

Pastel Blue Cottage Table

My friends and I often get together for brunch or lunch. Sometimes we eat out and sometimes we dine in one of our homes. Today I’m sharing a pretty, farmhouse cottage table covered with a handmade quilt. It was a present many years ago from my wonderful sister-in-law, the best little sister anyone could ask for.  It is a lap quilt with a hanging pocket  on the back. Over the years, I’ve hung it on the wall, displayed it on my bed. and laid it on tables.

Spring Bouquet With Blue Flag Iris & Amaryllis

It is grown as a potted plant in most parts of the United States but can also be grown outdoors year round in Florida.)
