Introducing....my Thanksgiving tree!

I think I have officially decorated my sunroom Christmas tree for every single holiday (including family birthdays and some made-up holidays) much to the annoyance of my twelve year old. This tree has become a permanent fixture since we refinished the basement and lost our extra storage. I also have to admit there's something peaceful about seeing the tree all lit up at night even when it's the middle of summer.

Without further ado...I give you my Thanksgiving tree!

The "Giving Thanks" banner is from Paper Glitter.

You can find her "free" Thanksgiving printables here. I used a combination of her graphics, the Graphics Fairy and other vintage Thanksgiving postcard images found on the web to decorate my tree.

I also hung miniature Indian corn husks with ribbon and Christmas hooks.

And because I always decorate our house for every holiday (my mother taught me well), here are a few more Thanksgiving decorations. Emma helped me make these Indians out of wooden beads, yarn, felt, and feathers three years ago.

Gobble Gobble!

Love your tree!
I saw some fall leaves and acorns out of felt at HL or Target-I think I need to go buy some for my tree since I'm not as crafty as you!
Off to Holland today~Love this time of the year with all the beautiful decorations and ideas!

Soooo pretty Kim! What a fun way to begin to celebrate the holidays even at Thanksgiving! And of course, all the additional home-made goodies from the girls add to it too! I think I'd enjoy having a tree lit up all the time. :)

You never cease to amaze me! Of course the Thanksgiving tree is perfect!

I love getting Merry Christmas to me (or Happy Birthday gifts). However, Chris won't let me do that very often because he loves to surprise me! So sometimes it ends up not being my gift. (Hey, you have a sweet husband, too! So maybe. . .)

I love having my mantles and trees lit up. . .it just makes the house so cozy!

Happy Wednesday,
Cindy
