Turkey Dressing...

no, not "turkey AND dressing"...just turkey dressing..

Yep, that's how our Sunday was.

Aren't these paper plates pretty? And the napkins and basket and towels?

I think so too. They're from my sister Gerri when she came for the "early Thanks-Mas dinner"

She had ordered a turkey plate holder but, because we moved the day up by 3 weeks, it had not arrived by the time she left for Utah.

So she got the pretty basket and gave me all the items she was going to put on the turkey display. Napkins in 2 sizes, plates in 2 sizes and lots of plastic ware that we usually end up having to use because we use all the regular flatware for dinner, so we eat pie with plastic!

So when he finally arrived, Mr. B assembled him and viola! A fully "dressed" turkey...but wait...



Because of the whole "Thanks-Mas" theme, Mr. B decided to have this guy stay around for a while...
So there you have it...Turkey Dressing! Thanks Gerri, we love him...


And speaking about lovin' something, I found this beautiful mug at Linens & Things. They are closing all their stores (along with many other stores..sad. sad..) and Mr. B had a gift card he thought he should use quickly. He found a great large roasting pan that was on half-price, so he got it for the remaining due after the $20 - $1.47!


And I saw this mug and really wanted it - it was also on for half-price so now I have a beautiful mug....

...and I didn't even notice until I snapped the photo - it has a "B" on it!


So, it was meant for me. And Mr. B has his roaster. And the turkey has a wardrobe. ..

..and I shall say good-night..

Good Night!

Hmm..I've never shopped Linen and Things, so sorry their doors are closing...along with way to many others. I think I'll be talking to the man upstairs and asking him what is he thinking about the state of afairs this world is in. Twilight...enjoyable, and anything that gets young kids reading I'm in favor of. I read the Twilight, didn't continue with the others, but I'm glad I read and saw the movie...Keeping up with the times ya know!

I like your Turkey Dressing. That is cute! It is sad how so many stores are closing and that means many lost jobs as well. I hope things look better before too long. Happy Thanksgiving to you!
