  1. That was a sweet post. I'm thankful I get to spend a few minutes each day with lovely bloggers.

  2. I love your Pilgrim china!!! I am drawn to simple and elegant designs, too. I also have several pieces of Prescut glassware. Lots of luncheon sets, vases, creamer and sugar, etc. Again, it's a simple and elegant design. Your table setting is gorgeous....love the milk glass you added, too!

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!!!


  3. Hi Sue, I think your Pilgrim china is beautiful and your table is so warm and inviting. I hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving. Char

  4. Sweet Sue, I am thankful to be able to call you my friend. You are a bright light in my life.

  5. Enjoyed looking at your photos ... I have a bit of EAPC myself, can always find bits and pieces of it in the thrift stores.
    Thanks for sharing the beautiful things in your china cabinet.

  6. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Your table is beautiful. Very elegant.

  7. What a Wonderful Collection of Posts ~ I had fun reading & now have a new respect for the Newly "Antique" Star Pattern... Have a Happy Thanksgiving~

  8. Have a wonderful and blessed Happy Thanksgiving! Hugs, Marilou

  9. Hi Sue,

  10. Beautiful post. Your table setting is so inviting. What time shall I arrive? Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  11. Well, Pilgrim china is beautiful and I suppose the perfect dishes for Thanksgiving. LOL
    Beautiful post, Sue. I have enjoyed your acorn china cabinet posts. You have some lovely pieces.
    I don't have an acorn china cabinet, but stop by my most recent post for a cup of tea and a sweet acorn treat. ;-)

  12. You certainty know how to set a lovely table. We never had anything like that when I was growing up. I am going to my sons for Thanksgiving and his wife likes to do things fancy. I doubt it will be as nice as yours.
