|The same thing happened here where there used to be azaleas.|

|This is the place setting I devised for our Mexican Thanksgiving dinner served (partly) on my new Chinese dinnerware.|
|My clearance Fall wreath from Pier 1.|
|My turkey S&P shakers are my only nod to the ceremonial turkey.|
|That GOBBLE thing is supposed to be a trivet.|
|Some candlelight photos of the table when all the food and the pitcher of margaritas were laid out. We only had half that pitcher of margaritas, saving the rest for the next day, just so you know.|
|It was fun, combining my Chinese dishes with Ralph Lauren china plates, Pier 1 margarita glasses and the drink in a martini pitcher. You might notice I used the soup spoons as little condiment serving spoons. |
Hey -- it worked!
P.S. Done any cybershopping this weekend? I bought a stencil on sale. That's all! More on what I will do with that later. I agree with the designer James Swan (Million Dollar Decorating) who opened his post Friday with the statement that "wild horses could not drag me into the stores today." I did do some cyber-looking, but I just couldn't get excited about anything there either. As Maxine says:
|Brendan, this one is for you.|
