just for fun kids corner

I have so many snowmen I am glad to get to show them.
Modern day Santa that kids know standing on a Christmas stand I got from my favorite thrift store.

It's beginning to look like christmas all around our town.People took advantage of the nice weather to get out their Chrismas displays. I attended our town's Christmas Concert  last night. It got me in the mood for the coming holiday. the music was great and the money goes to Hospice. The Opera House was full and people in a joyous mood. We also had a sing along.

Votives filled with candy canes for treats and for hot cocoa.

Snowmen salt and pepper. Next Sunday will be our annual Christmas  night parade. We even have Canadian bagpipers, and their best float. We used to have it in the day time but the night shows all the lights.The dogs sit in the window in awe. It goes right by my house.There will be hundreds of people in town. The cars go by our house and it sometimes takes an hour for them to go by.
Hot peppermint cocoa what's not to like.
Another sweet snowman. The senior citizens bus will take a tour of the town when all decorations are up. that is a fun trip.
Santa and a raindeer set the center stage. I am sure he will busy getting ready for the big night. This would be a good time to talk about the reason for the season.
More happy snowmen. I don't usually decorate til 2 weeks before Christmas but this year I will set up all my trees. Stop to see how many.I stll have the mantle and bay window to do. Now I have a kitty he can jump high so will need to adjust to that. I tried to dress him in  hat and red top but it was no go. My dogs love it. Now I must find their new headgear. lol See you next week and see what I come up with.

My babies all fast asleep. How peaceful.
Thanksgiving dinner  with friends and family,great food and making memories. After it is all over with left overs for next  a day brunch. It is getting cold up north.  We had a couple of  nights with frosts. soon our snow birds will be heading south.
Made a hurricane lamp filled with seeds and dried tiny pine cones.
the table cloth is a square piece of canvas for a rustic feel.. My cornucopia now filled with fake fruit but could use real fruit.
Colors of fall. Metal oakleaf for napkin ring. Soup dish ,I think turkey noodle and crackers. Different way of placing silverware..
I purchased at a local craft show. It really hangs on door knob but used for a little decor.
Unusual salt and pepper ,rustic looking. Pears for a background. 
There' my birdie sitting on a basket of tiny acorns. Fall will soon be over ,sad but true.  Winter coming fast. the only snow I want to see is the first snowfall.  It covers up the bare trees and sparkles in the sunlight. Enchanting.Everything white and clean.
A closer look at the different placement of silverware.
My vintage brass candlesticks with a little vine wreath.
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor  away.
Long view of table. See the mug rug with a flower. amber goblets with burlap bow.  I have a new love for burlap which I never would have thought to use before.

Hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving and be thankful for the little things in life and pray that next year be  bountiful and peaceful.
