My mother passed on a set of plates and a beautiful pottery gravy dish and saucer. It is so nice to be in our new home and creating traditions.
We are hosting most of my husband's family this year. Now that we have been blessed with more space, I am excited to be able to do this.
My husband, Michael, bartered a day helping a friend down the road process (kill, etc..) his organic turkeys in exchange for one. We only eat meat we raise ourselves or know the people that raised it, which is not very often.
The children and I are making centerpieces for the tables. We are using a piece of branch and Abby is hot gluing little cones around the edge and then a beeswax candle with go in the center of each and they will be placed on a square piece of fabric that I have seamed and that matches the fabric napkins I made.
