  1. This is such a pretty table, Sandi...fallish and festive! It is perfect for Thanksgiving and I can see it becoming huge and surrounded by the smiling faces of your family!! Love the thrify buys of course and I had to laugh when I remembered Duz soap. I also remember Breeze and the free towels!!

    Everything looks wonderful. Great job! :-)


  2. I remember when you could get glasses from detergent. I'd forgotten all about that! I love those white dishes from your mom, they would go with so many things. I enjoyed my visit.


  3. That is a beautiful fall tablescape. It will be perfect for Thanksgiving next week.
