happy thanksgiving from the country townhouse!

Mr. Q and I are hosting Thanksgiving for our families this year and my goal was to make our house look cute and seasonal without spending a lot of money.

A little shop-the-house artwork made with burlap, a bee pin from our bulletin board, and Debbie's letterpressed note.

Some shop-the-house artwork made with a Goodwill frame I painted for our wedding, leftover burlap, and Debbie's letterpress card secured with a bee pin from our bulletin board, paired with one of my fake milk glass vases (also from the wedding) with a little wine cork collection and a faux mercury glass candleholder I bought last Christmas.

I may have stolen this Oswald Chambers book.

The green book was wedding decor, My Utmost for His Highest was a gift from one of my college campus ministers that I thought was appropriate for Thanksgiving.  Another mercury glass candleholder and milk glass vase add some symmetry.

Thanksgiving table.

And here's our table!  I made the burlap tablecloth by following the tutorial for preparing burlap at Ella Claire.


The blue mason jar is part of my collection; the two smaller glass jars are from the farmer's market and used to hold local honey.  I filled them with colorful beans to fit a rustic harvest theme.

Grocery Store flowers

The napkins and dessert plates were on sale at our local Wal-Mart.


I think grocery store flowers look just fine in a rustic arrangement!
