As we enjoy Thanksgiving and express appreciation and gratitude, I want to thank family, friends, clients and readers for your support. Writing this blog has allowed me to connect with you on many topics. From antiquing to decorating to gardening, I have enjoyed sharing my point of view, and I cherish your visits and feedback.

To celebrate this special time of gathering, I created a couple of seasonal arrangements using my favorite antique brown-and-white transferware pieces, dried flowers, and preserved foliage. Many thanks to my friend Ellen Seagraves for finding such unique floral items. Ellen, whose work I’ve featured here, is a fabulous florist.

Have a wonderful and warm Thanksgiving!

 A bouquet of dried limelight hydrangeas, alliums, eucalyptus silver bell pods, artemisia, and grevillea leaves in a favorite brown-and-white transferware pitcher. The hydrangeas and alliums are from my garden.
 In this small brown-and-white transferware vase are dried cream pepper berries and bunny tail grass.
Happy Thanksgiving!!
