Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Here's some great photos from the November 1940 McCall magazine:
We thank thee, Lord...For all these bounties, deep and dear and living...For the unclouded trust in the face of a child as Grandfather says the blessing...For the steadfast clasp of an old man's hands...For the peace in a mother's heart when those she loves are close to her, safe and together and unafraid...We give Thanksgiving....

The color scheme for the 1940 Thanksgiving meal were taken from Old Glory's red, white and blue:

On the 1940 Thanksgiving menu is:

* Stars and Bars Turkey Platter
*Oyster Stuffing
*Cranberry Cutouts
*Giblet Scrapple Squares
*Sauteed Pineapple
*Creamed Onions with Pimiento Stars
*Glazed Yams and Oranges
*Raw Relish Bowl
*Blush Apple Pie
*Coffee & Tea

What's on your Thanksgiving menu?

This year I am so thankful for:
-A wonderful relationship with my partner and a love that grows deeper every year,
-A family that has supported me in everything I've done and constantly shows their love,
-That I get paid for doing work that I love and get to challenge myself intellectually on a daily basis,
-For the opportunity to live in a beautiful country and to travel around, and
-For the super supportive and fun sewing community (all of you!) and to have a fantastic hobby (that I get to wear the results of!)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


  1. How lovely! It's so inspiring to see others' lists of things that they're grateful for. I have so very many things to be thankful for too - and blogging friendships is at the top.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Debi - and thank you for all you do to brighten our lives with your lovely blog!

    I had roast chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, spicy roast squash, salad, pie and snacky things for lunch. It was yummy :)
