A Time to Give Thanks !!!!

Hello Everybody!!!!
Thanksgiving is just round the corner. Putting this post together made me feel blessed in soo many ways. Our fast paced lives seem to throw us off track and we tend to take soo much for granted. But Thanksgiving sure puts things in perspective for me and let's me count my blessings and be thankful for them. 

My biggest blessing is to have a wonderful family to support me through  a journey called life. A support system that you can fall back on no matter what and  love you for who you are.

I'm thankful for a place called home. A place that makes me feel secure, a place to call our own and helps me create memories. A place that I wrap in things I love. And in turn, my home reminds me of the important stories and things that I may tend to forget as life trudges us on.

This year has been incredible for me. I'm thankful to be able to answer my true calling.......my creative side. Through my online boutique and my blog, I fill my creative void constructively. Being able to interact with people and touch peoples lives in my own little way is very rewarding. I've also met some wonderful friends through both these ventures, they know who they are;) 

Count your blessings, you always have something to be thankful for !!!!! 

If you like what you see and want to recreate this for your loved ones, I've got you covered. It takes less than 10 minutes to get this together. Turn an empty wine glass, a trifle bowl and a mercury glass votive holder upside down. Voilà !!!! You've got yourself candle holders in varying heights.  I've used potpourri vase fillers to fill up the wine glass and trifle bowl. Pop some candles on them and we're good to go. Tie on some raffia and loosely tuck in fresh berries from  the garden. Some faux pumpkins and votive holders add to the thanksgiving theme. The entire setting has been done on a wooden tray so as to be able to quickly move it out for the food to take center stage later in the evening. This is a perfect little vignette for the coffee table too.
Thank you for stopping by here at TECD. I'd like to wish my lovely readers a very Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful fun filled holiday with  family and friends !!!!!!  
With a long weekend coming my way, I'm not going to be able to drop in as often as I like. So I'll see you'll next week as we tour the world over scouting for exclusive global finds and more.
