White Wednesday & Giving Thanks.....

I took on the daunting task of switching my library area with the dining room so we would have more space as our small family grows with son in laws and grand babies....(yes, they are already talking about having a second "tater"). I never knew that my mother and nieces and their families would actually take me up on my invitation to host Thanksgiving at my home.....but they DID. My mother lost her husband last March and also just got back from Italy where she spent 10 days with her sisters......and at age 83 she was tired. So.........we had to really, really put it in high gear to get the rooms switched and cleaned for company. I am quite pleased with the way the bookcases hold my white pottery instead of the dark books they once held and there is plenty of room for the table...even with the leaves. Although it was ALOT of work......it was worth it. I'm sure if you ask my husband right now he might not agree......it has been a chore for sure.....and it just happened to be all white, so I had to share. If you want to see more beautiful whites today, jump over to Kathleen's Faded Charm using the button on my left sidebar. I'm sure you will find other gorgeous whites and many best wishes for Thanksgiving today. I know I am sending you my very best and hope your holiday is full of family, friends, and good food. I have so very much to be thankful for and I know I often forget to be grateful during the stressful times.......but life is very good. I hope yours is too.....Stay safe this holiday if traveling and hold your family and friends tight....in the end, they are really all we have.

  5. Oh, it is just a fantastic dining room! I love it - fabulous white pottery collection. If those shelves were full of books, then I know that was some heavy lifting and toting ya'll had to do. I can see that Sweet Annie was supervising and she is just worn out!

    Particularly admire (and lust after) the beautiful chandelier and candalabra. So dreamy...
