My friend, Sandra from Ravenhill Cottage just wrote a wonderful post on the comforts of a Victorian home. Based on her suggestions, I added a little something to my entryway. I also have plans to add a coat and hat rack, since our home doesn't have a hall closet.
I placed a small silver tray on the right side of the table. Long ago, it would have been used for calling cards, but now holds a few vintage Thanksgiving postcards.
I found the postcards while visiting a few antique shops this past weekend. Now I have the perfect spot to display them. :0)
One of the cards has a sweet note written on the back.

My Dear Boy-
Just recieved the rose cutting. Thank you for them.
I have been sick, the reason I have not wrote to you.
Feel some better now, will write you a letter soon.
Glad you are well.
Thank you for the wonderful ideas, Sandra!
So often, Thanksgiving is rushed or overlooked in an effort to get on to the next holiday - Christmas. Going to the stores this time of year certainly doesn't help! Let us look for ways to slow down and enjoy this wonderful time with our family and friends. May our thankfulness spill over into the month of December, as we celebrate the true meaning of the season!
