Our thankful table...

Yesterday was spent in our kitchen.  Travis and I dancing around each other as we worked on various dishes and kept a close eye on the bird.  I used many (if not all!) of Pioneer Woman's recipes- and she did not disappoint!

This vintage butcher scale corrals my cooking utensils...

I kept the table simple, using my Wedgewood Queensware china (ebay score!) and Pottery Barn flatware.  I love that the plates are a bit mismatched in size and show so much aging in them.   The goblets are from Southern Living at Home- and are fragile, so they barely get used once a year.  The napkins are a wonderfully durable linen and were bought on Etsy.  I use them year round, and they hold up very well.

Our table is a French antique that I purchased from a small antique store nearby.  I love that it has leaves that pull out of either side and that I can comfortably seat ten people around it.  Folded up it seats our six perfectly.  The chairs are from World Market.

I love that my PB pieces have that lovely tarnished/worn look even though they are "new"...

 The topiaries normally sit on our living room fireplace mantel.  I just popped them on top of a lovely burlap runner made by my cousin over at Sweet Tea & Linen.

I did use an "overflow table" for the kiddos ;)  Luckily I had this table out in the workshop that I had finished up earlier this month.  It's going to the market on December 7th.

My new slipcovers were installed the day before.  I am SO beyond excited at how they turned out, and plan on sharing the details and the lovely artist with you in another post.  Well worth the investment!

It was a lovely day spent with family and a roaring fire in the fireplace.

I am truly thankful.
