Thanksgiving Leftovers

Thanksgiving ...

New flowers in the windowbox ...









Why I don't use my good lace tablecloths on Thanksgiving ...












Gorgeous tulips! Californians put tulips and tangerines on the table in November ...












A favorite doily on a side table ...












Thanksgiving tradition: a handpainted folk art turkey made of reeds. I've cooked Thanksgiving dinner for the last 18 years for my family, and this turkey has been on the table every year. (A new fixture: Mr. Monk reminds me of my knitting OCD every day ... )












We found this tiny dish among my mother-in-law's china. I didn't quite get it with my limited Italian. The translation: "far from the eyes, far from the heart" -- an Italian version of "out of sight, out of mind." I wish I knew the story behind this little dish. I'll make one up and tell you later.

Looks like your Thanksgiving was a great one. I think the crumbs on the table say it all :-)
