Bridging the Seasons...

Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on my last post!  I've been down with the flu/cold that seems to be everywhere, and have been gone from my blog for awhile!  While not 100% yet, I'm hoping to be feeling much better for Thanksgiving!  
Thought I'd share a few photos of how I am transitioning decorating our hutch from Thanksgiving to Christmas! 
Adding in greenery instantly changes it up...

These little guys poke their heads out everywhere...

but some Christmas accents are showing up, too!  Isn't this a beautiful old plate?

Silvery ornaments are always favorites...

and a petite feather tree adds to the festive feeling!

I received the most charming Thanksgiving card from sweet Sharon over at My Vintage Studio !  I think her cards are wonderful!  She has a lovely etsy shop , too!  Thank you so much, Sharon!

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Until next time...

  17. Sorry that you've been under the weather! Your hutch looks fantastic. I think I could pull up a chair and sit and stare at it all afternoon and still find little things I hadn't noticed the first time. Have a wonderful holiday!

    Hope you're feeling better today Linda, and I hope you and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving. Hugs.

  21. I hope you are feeling much better by now and that you had a good Thanksgiving. I love the decorating in your hutch...beautiful.

  22. I,too, am always surprised at how adding twigs of greenery completely changes the feel of a house... makes it feel so festive and warm! Beautiful sparkle from silver ornaments or vintage sterling pieces are just the right touches. And the mini feather tree... so sweet! Thanks for sharing!

  23. I hope you are feeling better by now, Linda!
