Thanksgiving Treasures!

The day before Thanksgiving, I'd love to share with you some fabulous holiday shopping collections on Etsy! I'm hoping to inspire you to do your holiday shopping early and boycott the big stores that are opening on Thanksgiving day for Black Friday sales. Besides, handmade and vintage items are so much more delightful and meaningful!! Stay home on Thanksgiving with the people you love and watch the parades & football, and eat lots of Turkey and pumpkin pie! After all isn't that what Thanksgiving is for? ;o)


Have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Are you ready for Turkey day??

We did our grocery shopping a few days ago, and bought all our Thanksgiving food and goodies, as well baking supplies for some of my holiday baking.  It's so much fun to plan holiday meals and the decorations, etc. that we all enjoy.  If you still haven't found all those little extras that make Thanksgiving special, check out some of these delightful items that I found while browsing Etsy!

Let's start with this fabulous set of Vintage Shenango restaurant china, in this beautiful Pumpkin Orange color.  It includes 52 pieces, is made by Anchor Hocking, and can be purchased directly from the Etsy shop, Ione's Attic.

Here's a delightful Thanksgiving centerpiece or table decoration.  What a darling way to show off fall flowers, berries and gourds in beautiful autumn colors in this cute craft pumpkin!  This centerpiece can be purchased directly from the Etsy shop, A Work of Heart.

Every hostess need a pair of these adorable Thanksgiving turkey earrings in polymer clay! They are perfect for the occasion.  :o)  These can be purchased directly from the Etsy shop of ButtonwilloeDesigns.

Don't these beautifully decorated sugar cookies make your mouth water?  What a wonderful addition to the Thanksgiving desert table!  You can purchase a dozen of these tasty treats directly from the Etsy shop, MissBettyCakes.

There's no better way to polish off that Thanksgiving meal than with a cup of Pumpkin Spice Coffee!  Doesn't this look amazing?!!  You can purchase this fabulous coffee directly from the Etsy shop, Starburst Coffee Shop.

And last but not least, a sweet reminder what the holiday is all about!  This lovely "Give Thanks" banner can be purchased directly from the Etsy shop, Cow Country Creations.

Wishing you all a beautiful Thanksgiving filled with family, good food and lots of love!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!
