Ready, Set...

The table is set and the turkeys are ready for the Chatham Lobster and Corn Chowder. 
This will be prepared by my sister, Nancy.  The recipe is very easy and
 can be found on page 38 of our cookbook.
FYI - The Quaker Lace Tablecloth is a Thanksgiving pattern,
featuring, the bounty of the season, The Mayflower, The Pilgrims
and the Native People. 

Pinterest comes in handy!  There are so many ideas and this year
I decided to try and incorporate some of them into our Thanksgiving Day celebration.

Wooden Pilgrims grace the buffet.  They were a gift to my Mother from
our cousin, Wendy.  Vintage Platters, plates and carnival glass vases
compliment each other.

These Pilgrim candles are about 50 years old.  They come from
the Colonial Candle Company which was located in Hyannisport on Cape Cod
Massachusetts.  They are treated like gold and my Mother purchased and
treasured them.  They are very special to all of us.

Mixing the old treasures with new ideas is a way of nurturing your creativity
all the while nurturing your heart.
