"I heard a bird sing in the dark of December a magical thing and sweet to remember. 'We are nearer to spring than we were in September,' I heard a bird sing in the dark of December."  ~Oliver Herford~
"Every year at just this time, in cold and dark December, families  around the world all gather to remember, with presents and with parties, with feasting and with fun, customs and traditions for people old and young."       ~Helen H.

I do not have a much out  for fall and Thanksgiving as I do for some of the other holidays.  Here are some of the pictures. 

These are my indoor decorations .  Most of them were found at yard sales.    Now for my outdoor decorations.

Most of my outdoor decorations are wood crafts that my husband cut out and I painted.  The items in the window were bought at the Dollar store.  Not sure where I bought my door wreath.  
Wishing everyone an early blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving.
