Thanksgiving Touches Around the House

We host Thanksgiving each year
so I am used to preparing for a crowd.

While I still have a lot of shopping and planning for the big turkey day,
I had some time to put a few Thanksgiving touches around the house.

I added some fall-like pieces to my 
Ballard Shelves.

I did a quick switch on my mantel.

I just took away the jack-o-lantern and replaced it with a black lantern.
Brilliant I know - lol!

And I swapped out my Zac Brown lyrics
for some Thanksgiving subway art in the bathroom.

I found the printout on Pinterest
 but I can't seem to find the original source now.
Sorry about that!

 I threw some white mini-pumpkins in a basket for the kitchen table.

And I hung a little scarecrow on the interior of the front door.

So far Rosie hasn't discovered it.
She is too busy stealing our socks!
