Thankful for Pinterest

How many of you have discovered Pinterest?  Well, I'm addicted and it really is fun!  For those of you who don't know what Pinterest is, well it's a website that allows you to make cyber idea boards.  We've all made idea boards or books, well this is that on steroids :) My Pinterest address is  http://pinterest.com/shannonimlay/  All of the photo's (or pins) you see on today's post come from either my "Be Ye Thankful, or "The Best Thanksgiving Ever" boards.
I love this Turkey Transfer-ware setting by http://fabulousfifi.typepad.com/chez_fifi/ It seems right of a Norman Rockwell painting :)
This Apple Pecan Bread Pudding with Warm Caramel Sauce seems like a perfect Thanksgiving Dessert to me, it's by a wonderful woman, Deanna, who runs "The Old Hen" B&B in Washington State    http://www.theoldhen.com/2012/09/25/apple-pecan-bread-pudding-warm-caramel-sauce-recipe/
I love the idea of serving apple cider or eggnog in in a pumpkin punch bowl :) You can also use this to chill wines like an ice bucket.  Here are the instructions from Martha Stewart  http://www.marthastewart.com/268772/pumpkin-party-cooler?backto=true&backtourl=/photogallery/pumpkins
Simple yet elegant glittered letters pretty much say it all.  Image by Google.
How cute would these be at "The Kids Table).  I know a few adults who would love these too. by  http://www.accenttheparty.com/party-blog/view/40754/easty-to-make-pilgrim-hat-cookies-for-thanksgiving
It doesn't get much easier, or prettier, than these leaf wrapped votives by Better Homes and Gardens.  This is the perfect touch for your Thanksgiving table, sideboard, or buffet  http://www.bhg.com/thanksgiving/indoor-decorating/holiday-decorating-projects/?socsrc=bhgpin102912Votives&page=5

So check out Pinterest, and I'd love it if you followed me :)  If you can think of it, they have an idea for it.   Have a Blessed and safe Thanksgiving
