Need a Thanksgiving centerpiece?

This is something I love to do as a centerpiece~take my candlesticks and put ornaments on them in place of candles. I have brass candlesticks and glass/crystal candlesticks that look gorgeous with glass bulbs,fancy or plain Christmas ornaments sitting on them.
I bought this set for my son and his girlfriend last Thanksgiving. It will look terrific on our table for Thanksgiving!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving with loved ones! Count your blessings!

Urban Fairy Doors of Ann Arbor

I spent a wonderful day last week with my wonderful sister. We shared breakfast, lunch and dinner and even got some shopping in. Most of the day was spent in Ann Arbor where we visited some lovely shops. I had a list of gifts to pick up for Christmas and was eager to get started. While browsing in the first shop, Peaceable Kingdom, I happened to see someone sitting on the floor by the front window. Curious, I went over and discovered two miniature windows. I gingerly knelt down, looked inside and found a fairy store! My curiousity led me outside the store to find the door to this tiny store and there it was~but my camera battery went dead. I did get some pictures of inside the fairy store but had to take a picture of a postcard to get a picture of the door.
Now I need to return Ann Arbor to seek out other fairy doors~Small Enchantments are found when you least expect them.
