Thanksgiving At Old Glory Cottage!


I'd like to wish one and all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Here's our decorations, which had to be packed away a couple of days later because a giant kitten thought batting around the turkeys was lots of fun!

We'll be going to my sister's for Thanksgiving dinner. She has the whole family over every year, and cooks everything herself and it's all so yummy!

Then I'll help her load up the dishwasher.........


and we'll all gather 'round the TV and cheer on The Green Bay Packers! Or at least my daughter and I will. Everyone else hates the Packers.

Then it's to bed nice and early, because.......

NO! I'm not joining the throng of shoppers at the malls and various stores for Black Friday.

I'm going to 2 estate sales! One advertises lots of mid-century stuff, and the other one opens at 7AM and claims to have tons of vintage glassware. The only problem is that both are in a town that has all of those malls and big stores, and most of my time will probably be spent in the car. But I hope to find some treasures!

And then it's time to trim the tree, the house, and every other bare surface! I can't wait to get started. To me, it's Red Friday!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Yeah for Carol! That is the best way to shop...thrift, estate sales, garage sales...save the planet! Buy vintage!
I am working today at the thrift store. Did I tell you I got full-time work and I now manage the joint? Love it! I'm all about shop local or handmade. Have fun girlfriend, wish I could be with you!

I am so jealous...an estate sale? Oh think of me. I would get up early for that but not retail...enjoy your day. We are all resting up after a long day with the MIL...her meal is anything but edible. Smiles...Renee

Hi Carol, I can just picture that cat having the time of it's life. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful! Can't wait to see your holiday decor. You have such a wonderful knack of decorating. Also, can't wait to see what treasures you found!

I have had great fun reading your blog today! I think Estate Sales would be the best way to shop! We didn't go out either! It didn't make sense to me! I am happy to be your newest follower!
