"First things first...We are truly blessed to have the means to set a pretty table and invite our friends to join us for good food and fellowship. I am mindful that many are not so fortunate. My daughter has a passion for the work of the Food Bank. As a singer-songwriter, she has written and recorded a song that is the anthem for the world wide Crop Hunger Walk project. Her song, "Raise Your Voice" is featured in their video. I've included a link in the side margin of my blog. I hope that during this harvest season, it will encourage you to support projects in your community that contribute to the effort to overcome hunger.
Do you remember the old television show called "Kung Fu", starring David Carradine? His teacher, "Master Po" would tell him when he had achieved a task, "Well done, Grasshopper." Last week I had the delightful pleasure of photographing the Thanksgiving tablescape designed by Cindy, the dear lady who stayed with me the first two weeks after I returned home from my knee replacement surgery. I enjoyed sharing a number of the archives from my blog with her during our time together. Once I discovered that she has a true interest in tablescaping and dinnerware, I was thrilled to send her home with a few of the items in my "china room"...items that I had decided to edit from my collection. Cindy was excited, and I was even more thrilled when I was invited to visit Cindy's home and see the tablescape that she had created for her family's Thanksgiving feast. I wanted to share it with you this week.
My family shared our Thanksgiving dinner at my precious KC and David's home. I'll share that
tablescape with you next week. I pray that your holiday was truly blessed. I continue to make progress with my new knee replacement. It's a fairly extended process, so I'll be entertaining as I am able. I hope to share a number of Christmas tables with you, dear blog friends. Your prayers have lifted and encouraged me. I am grateful for you!
This week I'll be joining:
