Today’s post is brought to you by Thanksgiving in Canada, and a cat photo bomber.
My son wanted a nice dinner for our Thankgiving, so I got all fancy like, and picked up a ham, whipped up some homemade scalloped potatoes , applesauce, ambrosia, and a few other fun things.
But no Thanksgiving table is complete without a fall centrepiece of some sort!
You may recognize the log candle base.
This started off as a Christmas log centrepiece. (click for tutorial here) I attached some cut down firewood to the base of a pizza pan, threw on a rusty old plant stand and added the fresh greens.
The addition of the cat was a nice perk of course! Skye loves to spec out whatever I make.
All I did differently was go shopping to the outdoor mall right in my backyard. We have grapevine leaves, pinecones, dead Christmas tree bits, branches, dried hydrangeas and pieces of tree branches. Just whatever was available.
Everything was piled up until I achieved the layers and height that was pleasing to the eye.
On top of one of the shutters I got from my neighbour!
Pssst…. Skye, if you’re going to be in the picture, turn this way?
No? Well, then you’ll need to move. But only for a moment, I promise.
I must say, dinner was awesome! It’s been awhile since I cooked enough for an army of teen boys!
Much to my son’s delight, he claims his 3rd helping (which he couldn’t polish off) will be his breakfast tomorrow.
Fine by me!
And the centrepiece was perfect.
One day I’ll pick up some photography lighting so I can shoot in my kitchen. It’s a cave this time of year, and with the black metal topper, it’s a tough capture. Thank goodness for my photo studio!
And because Patty asked for more cat pictures yesterday…
When Cats Photobomb – with a little slide show!
See Skye helping me package something up – VERY cute!
#14 – You can make do with what you have.
Because we have FAR more than we even realize. We just have to open our eyes to it.
