My Sweet Find
We ate at Cracker Barrel over the weekend. Can I just say, "YUM!" I not only love their food but they also have the cutest little treasures in their gift shop. Of course I HAD to look because we had to wait for our table;) My eye went to the harvest table where everything was "agagillion" percent off! I fell in love with these darling little acorn tea light holders and I got them for "next to nothing!" They make an adorable display on the table but also serve a function as candle holders! They were so inexpensive I was able to buy one for each place setting at our Thanksgiving table! I plan to make these Thanksgiving placecards from Martha Stewart and put them next to these sweet little acorns.

I am going to be busy the next few days preparing our home for Thanksgiving. A house needs to be cleaned, pies need to be baked, flowers arranged,etc... to make our home ready for family and friends on this most special day. I will be back on Friday with the name of the winner of the Christmas cookie contest. I pray that each one of you has a most blessed and special time with your families this Thanksgiving Day! We all truly have so much to be thankful for, don't we? My love to all of you.

Just beautiful. I feel I will have to conquer my terror of flying, come across the atlantic and go to Cracker Barrel just to get some of those ADORABLE acorns. I have a little collection of acorn treaures, you see. How quaint to have a place to eat and buy little treats! Is Cracker Barrel a chain?

I imagine your table will be just lovely. Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh, Susan, they are so lovely!! Don't you love when you find just "the thing" and it's bargain priced? Your Thanksgiving dinner table will be so pretty.

I'm wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving. Have a blessed holiday.

Now that I found those flickering battery tealights (so safe around children & pets) I want to check out our Cracker Barrel to see if they have these acorns. Cracker Barrel is one of our favorite places to eat, too! It is (IMHO) the best chain restaurant around.
