Tis the Season of Giving Thanks

November, one of my favorite months... I don't know if it's the weather, the colors outside, the impending holidays, or the fact that Breaking Dawn will be out soon, but something about this month gives me a warm and cozy feeling inside. I always wish that this time of year would creep by so that feeling would last, but it always seems to fly. Before we know it December will be here, then Christmas will have come and gone. I will try to appreciate the little things about this month and give thanks for all of my blessings (even more than usual).

Tonight I put my cornucopia out. Several years ago, in 2004 to be exact, I bought a Martha Stewart magazine with a lovely cornucopia on the cover. Every year since then I try to recreate Martha's masterpiece on my dining room table. Of course that is next to impossible, but I try my best anyway. I love the inviting colors and try extra hard this time of year to keep the table uncluttered so I can enjoy my fall decor. This year I'm hosting Thanksgiving at my house again, so I've got some other decorating ideas up my sleeve that I borrowed from Pottery Barn. My husband will especially enjoy them because they involve deer horns and pheasant feathers. More to come on that later!

My Inspiration 

To me, there's no better feeling than to have my dining room table brimming with family and friends, food, drinks and love...
