Repost of Thanksgiving---#1

This is a visit from the past. I will be changing out my dining room table tommorrow!! I hope that I have improved.

As long as I have been married I have tried to set a table for special occasions. I recently found a wonderful site Between Naps on the Porch and realized that there are others in the world like me. Those who have items stashed in every nook and cranny of there houses. In the near future I hope to be one of those lucky ladies who will have everything organized.
Not only am I a collector but my mother cannot pass up a yard sale or antique shop. She is know my name at the local thrift stores, so I usually benefit from her visits. I hate to admit it but my daughter has inherited this gene also. We have lost count of our sets of Christmas dishes. Our church had a Christmas luncheon and she I set  6 tables and did not duplicate a table.
I am excited about my new venture and  I hope to improve my blogging abilities.

This is my first post of my table scape yesterday.
Wish I had photos of the past years.
