Thanksgiving

Halloween has come and gone . 
November is here and with that comes Thanksgiving.
Time to get the house ready for guest . 
Plan the menu, do the shopping etc.



This Turkey Platter is probably one of the first items that my husband and I bought after we were married. 
We were married on October 27th., Just celebrated our 41 anniversary.I guess we were in a hurry to get started on our lives as a married couple, and decided that we were going to cook our own Thanksgiving dinner..What the heck were we thinking , I didn't know how to cook anything , let alone a turkey.We bought it at the grocery store when we were shopping for our first turkey that we would cook ourselves. But that is another story :) My Turkey Platter is now 41 yrs old and I still use it every year. I can't remember how much we paid at the time. But money was tight and I am sure it was under $5.00. Its not really very pretty ,it doesn't even have a name stamped on the back, its just a plain old generic turkey platter., I have often thought about replacing it with something nicer, but I can't seem to part with her...

  7. Hi Faythe, I really like your platter. Thanksgiving is a special holiday and using pretty china makes it even more special. Congratulations on 41 years of marriage! That is quite a milestone!
