Hi Everyone, Welcome to Ten Gables cottage blog,
I'm busy getting ready for company on Thanksgiving, cleaning and making a list for the grocery store. I got out my grandmother's carnival glass punch bowl and cups---the marigold color is so pretty this time of year, so I thought I would serve a cold cider punch from it as it is supposed to be in the low 80's here which is really too warm for Thanksgiving!
Carnival glass was first made in 1905 to 1920 and was mass produced; it was used as prizes at carnivals---hence the name. It has become very collectible. My grandmother only had two remaining cups with her bowl, but I was able to find quite a few to add to it.
The turkey is a stuffed bird, not edible of course! But he is quite pretty in a corner of my dining room. The grandchildren expect to see him every year. Funny how the simplest thing can make a memory.
Let us not forget to thank God for our many blessings this time of year!
