November CpboardScape

Can it be Tuesday?
So glad this week is going by fast.
Cannot wait for some turkey dinner soon.

Before I start this post,
I need to clarify that my daughter
was in the car accident.
She also had back surgery.
She is still in the hospital with complications.
Cat scan and MRI inconclusive.
Neurosurgeon brought in now.
Please say a wee prayer or two for her.
Much appreciated.

We purchased this metal turkey along
with other animals to sell.
I decided to keep the turkey.
Still love it after years of having it.

Decided to pair it with my recent
hooked rug purchase.

Painted bowls are a rarity, and
I am privileged to own four of them.
This one a bittersweet color.
The bowl on top is a red one.

This bowl is from the 1700's and filled
with dried orange peels.

Sold these hearty greetings metal signs
at our gift shop.
I liked how primitive it looked.

We also are selling this garland.

Each leaf is cut from birch bark,
and no two alike.

The quilt is a child's vintage one.
Perfect for this time of year.

This will be my last post before Thanksgiving,
so I hope all of my American friends
have a fantastic one!
My mom is here and we will be making
homemade rolls later on.
We will be also making cinnamon ones too 
for breakfast.

Gobble Gobble Blessings To All!


  1. So pretty...I love the primitive style, and you have a touch that makes it just perfect! Homemade rolls - would you please share the recipe? I'd love to have a handed-down, tried & true recipe. Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving as well...enjoy the day with your mom! Mary

  2. You have the perfect primitive Thanksgiving decorations.
    I'll keep your daughter in my prayers.
    Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy your mom's visit.

  3. May your daughter’s body heal properly. Prayers going out for her. I’m glad your mom will be with you, perhaps to distract you a bit. That 1700s bowl makes my heart sing

  4. Oh shucks, I've a few birch trees and see the pealed bark blowing in my yard. Perhaps I should grab some, flatten them with a weight and make my own fall garland. Thanks for the idea. Your decoration is wonderful and would love to see a full view of the recently purchased antique rug.

    Will keep you and your daughter in my prayers.

  5. Many prayers for your daughter, Janice. I'm hoping that on Thanksgiving you will be able to give thanks for more news -- and good news at that. Please take care.

  6. Love your Tin Turkey ! Your decorations look wonderful !
    Will send you daughter lots of well wishes for a full recovery ....Enjoy Thanksgiving with your family !

  7. Janice, I completely understand wanting to keep that metal turkey. He is adorable and very unique along with all of your other Thanksgiving decorations. I hope your daughter will recover soon . Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your Mom and other family. I think homemade rolls are the perfect start to a yummy celebration!

  8. There's not a single thing I don't absolutely love about your harvest cupboardscape.... Those bowls...that turkey...and, oh my! That rug!!! I'd say you scored with that one. The colors are awesome. Saying prayers and sending healing thoughts for your daughter....worrisome stuff that. Have a blessed Thanksgiving and enjoy your time with your mum. ~Robin~

  9. Oh my goodness, I didn't know who it was from your previous post, but, I will be praying for her! Your style and how you stage it, is amazing. Enjoy the carbs, I now I am! Gobble, gobble is right!

  10. Your cupboard is awesome! Love the rug and the birch garland is really pretty! I'll definitely include your daughter in my prayers Janice. I do hope the doctors figure out the problem and that she's home soon. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Jan in MA

  11. Oh, Janice, I am so late getting around to visits and answers that I didn't realize that your daughter was having troubles. I hope the outcome of the surgery will be found and that she doesn't have to have another operation. Do they think it could have been a result of the accident? She sure didn't need that on top of back surgery. Have fun with your mom and hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving..xxoJudy

  12. I hope your daughter will be healed. I will certainly say prayers for her and for the doctors to understand what is needed. I hope your Thanksgiving was as good as it could be, with the worry on your mind. God Bless you, your daughter, your mom, and all your family.

  13. Happy Thanksgiving to you! I hope it was a lovely day. I like your turkey too! I can't help but wonder what kind of things were first in those bowls from the 1700s? Seriously, if only they could talk! Have a good weekend!
