As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday, my heart is full…not only is my only sibling making her annual “turkey trot” to Newport, but a lifelong friend will also be ensconsed in a guest room this week.
As I was awaiting their arrival, I took a short stroll around the ‘hood, admiring friends’ homes within the backdrop of a colorful fall and imagining their happy gathering on this, everyone’s favorite holiday, wrapped in time-honored traditions. I’ll include a few images as I wish you and yours many reasons to be thankful this day, to be grateful for the small things in life, and to be ever mindful of the silver linings in challenges we face.
As the lights came on I headed home to welcome my houseguests…I am so anticipating Thanksgiving ’23!
Our dressed-up partridge, cloaked in a patchwork of textiles, ribbon, velvet, and feathers. I can never resist the urge to bring an unexpected twist to my dinner tables (he’s also part of the mantle still life in the feature image)!
