I have been thinking about the table I will set for my Thanksgiving dinner. I am pretty sure it will be this Vintage china. The dinner plate is a pattern called 'Windsor Fruit'. from Johnson Brothers England. Of all the dinnerware I own, I think 'Windsor Fruit' is my favorite.The vegetable bowl behind the dinner plate is a different pattern from Vernon Kilns. It is called 'May Flower'. I think the two work beautifully together. They are from the 1940's - 1950's.
Here is a close up of the 'Windsor Fruit' plate.
I am not even cooking on Thanksgiving Day. We are going to my MIL's for dinner. We already have a turkey, so I plan to cook it on the Saturday following. I will do the whole turkey day shebang all over again. The best part will be having leftovers for a big turkey/dressing/fresh cranberry sauce sandwich the next day.
I am not even cooking anything to take to my MIL's. I found this 14-slice variety pack of cheesecake and that is my contribution--every piece is a different flavor. Can you imagine making 14 different cheesecakes and assembling this?
You have to love those huge food distribution stores--in this case, Gordon Food Service.
Other than working and getting my hair cut, I have not accomplished much this week.
I did start a new banner for Christmas. It will be a 'Ho Ho Ho' banner, but so far I have only completed two H's. It took a bit less than 10 minutes before work one morning.
I guess I am just not in the mood to sew this week.
I have also been ordering library books. The Country Decorating one I had last week was a Dud--other than the sunflower tree, there was not a thing I was interested in. I already have a pic of that tree in my files. I got it off the net a few years ago--more proof that the net is the place for ideas!
Now I have three novels to read.
I had better get started--a couple of these are pretty thick!
So that was my week--not too exciting--I hope yours was better!
