I had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family and food. And then? An abscessed tooth. I’ve been writhing in pain for the past couple of days, and I am now scheduled for a root canal tomorrow. Told you I wanted dentures!
Since I’m hopped up on some Vicodin right now, I thought I’d better get something out to you. As of 10:43am on Thanksgiving morning, I had nothing planned for our table. Eeeks! Talk about being forced to use what you have, eh?
I went in my basement and found a tablecloth and napkins that I bought in Italy 10 years ago. And I’ve never used it. Not even making that up. Crazy, I know.
Then I found these blue plates that I purchased on clearance this summer. I knew they’d come in handy at some point! I paired them up with some plain white dishes I had, and it was starting to come together.
Still shopping the house, I used some scrap fabric I had left over from the tablecloth curtains I made. They’re supposed to turn into pillows at some point, but my procrastination finally worked out for me!
A wooden bowl filled with some candles finished it off for the centerpiece. I’m not a fan of buffet-style dinner (if I can help it), so I didn’t worry about it. We filled the table with food as soon as the guests arrived.
So what am I thankful for after all this?
