From Winnie the Pooh:   “Piglet noticed that even though he had a very small heart, it could hold a rather large amount of gratitude.”  A.A. Milne  

Hi Friends,

Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion to clarity.  Let us give thanks to the Lord and His unwavering faithfulness. Let us make a JOYFUL noise unto the Lord.


These beautiful salad plates are from Williams Sonoma.

I believe these place mats were meant for these plates. They were a gift from Connie.

I used my 40 year old plates and crystal that ends up on my tables very often.

I used fresh flowers and fruit as my table runner, This is a way to add a lot of beauty to a festive table.

My gold flatware that I have had for decades matches the trim on the plates.


Happy Thanksgiving week my friends.

  1. Dianne, this is such a beautiful table! Of course I love the WS salad plates and they look so pretty paired with your china. I have always loved Winnie the Pooh, he is one of EM’s friends. Happy Thanksgiving my friend!
