Hello everyone, will you hang in there with me one more time so I can show you one more floral arrangement made by my daughter? No more Fall arrangements after this one, I promise!
Some of my latest finds include the above antique brass candlesticks for $4 each and the set of 6 embroidered crocheted edged napkins that I thought would compliment the Fall arrangement.
And what is Thanksgiving without the familiar "Thanksgiving Day" song/poem written by Mrs. Lydia Maria Child in 1844. Song better known as "Over the River".
The below lithograph (the original was painted in 1867) is the popular Currier and Ives print called "Home to Thanksgiving". Perfect for the song.
And how about this Victorian lady? She is known for her decades of campaigning to make Thanksgiving a National Holiday. And finally in 1863 Abraham Lincoln set the last Thursday in November as a National Holiday. Although Thanksgiving did not become a legal holiday until 1941.
And beside that, guess what else Sarah Josepha Hale is well known for? I've given you a hint in the below photo. Can you guess?
She was an editor for the popular Victorian magazine Godey's Lady's Book AND she wrote "Mary had a Little Lamb"! Isn't that sweet?
The little lamb is also one of my latest little finds. (I'm always looking for sheep for Easter, Lamb of God). The 1853 Godey's Lady's book I have had for a while. It contains a year of the magazines in one book. Colored fashion plates and all!
You have all inspired me so much with all of your beautiful Turkey plates, and I don't own a single one! The only turkeys I have around here are on my postcards. Latest postcard find...
But I do have some Bavaria bird plates. How about a pheasant for Thanksgiving? Or a mallard? JK
Thank you so much for visiting and have a blessed Thanksgiving Day!
