I am grateful for Diet Pie

Up early this morning to bake a punkin pie. House smells heavenly 

Sure hope it taste as good as it looks.  It's a skinny pie.  :)  Does that mean I can eat all I want?   I got the recipe from Jen of Our Southern Table blog.   Thank you Jen for your perfected recipe :)  I tried to get fancy with dough leaves off to the side.  Not sure I got it right! :)

 While the pie was baking, I went outside to gather something to make an arrangement with.  Other than the usual mums and orange flowers, I didn't see much at the grocery store yesterday, so thought I would make do with what was in the garden.  Since our last hard frost, pickins' are slim.  I ended up with baby pine cones, the last of the Dusty Miller, some cedar, and dried hydrangeas that were still on the bushes.  Not bad....do you think?  I have a number of vintage boxes I have collected over the years, one of my favorites being this Wheat Bread box.  Love the rustic with the elegance of the old silver champagne bucket.

One of my favorite things I have done in the family room is add the "Blessings" script on the wall over the bay window.  Every time I look at it, I smile.
Blessings to you and yours this Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving, Lynn! Pumpkin pie is my favorite. As it's just me, I bought one of those frozen packages with two pecan pie slices. They didn't have pumpkin!

What a sweet gratitude list! I have so many things to be thankful for as well! :)

Your arrangement is beautiful! I am still piecing one together...I'm just not that creative and I admit it!! I love your stenciling and seeing pictures of your pretty home. And your skinny pie looks delish! Send over the leftovers (which I doubt you will have!)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Beautiful post Lynn! I love your arrangement! That pie looks yummy! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I think you did a great job on the crust leaves! They look really cool! I have never tried anything like that, and I like it! I am charged with baking the pie for our small gathering of 4 (my husband, parents and me this year...that's it!), so I think I may give it a try. I will most likely fail, but at least I'll give it a whirl! :-) I LOVE that wheat bread box!!!!!! It has special meaning in my head with the recent closing of Hostess. Very cool!!! It looks fantastic enveloping the shiny silver bucket with all those glorious greens! I hope the blessings from your wall drift around to your table for all to have the best Thanksgiving ever. Take care!

Hi Lynn!!! Happy Pink Saturday and Happy TGiving to you and yours!! I know you and BG enjoyed your very special dinner together. . . but I know it was a different experience. I'm glad you made it so very special!!

I'm very tired from all it took to cook and clean and was dishes off and on for going on three days!! It was a grand time, however. We finished it off by cutting our trees this afternoon. . .then when all were on the road, I hit the bed! My age is showing. NOW...I only have 6 nights and 5 days to get ready for my Christmas sale. OMG. . .it will be nuts here for a big. I can't believe I've let things slide, but I did.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

L, Dana
