Happy Thanksgiving from Melanee

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. I`m truly thankful for the abundance I have. Once I understood I have just what I need, right now , at this point in my life, if I could just see it, I then understand it`s enough. Health , wealth and abundance to you all! And may you love and be loved. Thank you for reading my blog. Melanee

Decorating Ideas from Primitive America

A simple ironstone cup, the red against the pale white, gives the "early" feel of Christmas.

The old blue of the metal .Pinecones with a touch of white paint and a bit of glitter. This is an inexpensive simple way to decorate.

Pinecones in old primitive containers,baskets,measures,wooden buckets.

Faux plum puddings with aged cheesecloth.

Candles inside old tin graters, in a box of greens.

Candle on a hogscraper.
