Teacup Thursday #34

I'm sitting in my cozy little home with my woodstove chugging away. It was such a wet and stormy day...a taste of what's to come. Jim is in Illinois again so I'm home alone for a week. I've been working on paperwork, letter writing, reading and posting more Etsy things. I cannot believe how quickly the days slip away, especially with the time change. I've also been trying to get back on my healthy eating cutting the sugar and carbs for awhile. Oh, all I could think of today was a pumpkin scone!

This is a photo of a beautiful Spode plate that I found earlier this spring. Those of you who know me, know that I just love brown, so this was a special find. I love dishes with interesting boarders.

So here we are again...time for Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday! How can the weeks just fly by???
This is my very favorite pattern for Thanksgiving-Wild Turkey by Johnson Brothers. I have the dinner dishes for this pattern too. We'll be going to my sister's for the big dinner, so I won't be setting a big table this year.

I mix and match some of this pattern- His Majesty-with the Wild Turkey. I'll save some other I use to share with everyone next year.

This makes for a nice dessert and coffee set...pumpkin pie or apple pie? I do like pecan pie too. Saddly, I like them all.

It's almost time to take down the fall decorations and I realized I didn't post my pumpkin house. I made this a few years ago with LaVonne's encouragement. We found the little crows at a thrift store on her first visit to see me on her first trip out from Montana. She told me how to make the house and walked me through it, as so often does when it comes to our crafting! It was so fun, I'd love to make another one someday.

The little bunny that I received in my Tasha Tudor Fall exchange just fit right in with my pumpkin house. She is right at home.
I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving. It's such a nice holiday to be enjoyed. So many blessings this year.
