Isn't this the coolest, funky taloned plate holder? It isn't mine but my SIL Laura's--I took this on the Arizona visit. She has a fantastic eye for the unusual and loves antiques, especially those that are bird related. It looked great on her absolute black granite countertops. In just a few weeks we'll see their family and also my sister out here for the Christmas holidays. Can't wait! I have the week after Christmas off work from Job #2 and it will be great to spend time with everyone. I hope we can have a quilting circle at least one or two times, I so enjoy that. Happy Shopping, everyone!

After the cooking...
...Comes all the fun! We had 17 that ate at our Thanksgiving Day dinner table(s) and it all went very smoothly--doing a lot of the food prep the night before really helped so much, plus the housework and fetching the kids did, along with farming out some of the side dishes and the ham. The younger people hung out at one table and us oldies at the others. We were thankful to all be together to stuff ourselves and feel rich in food, warmth, and family!
