La casa è in mezzo a una campagna dipinta dei colori di un autunno inoltrato. Sulla soglia c’è una ragazza: è vestita semplicemente, i capelli raccolti in lunghe trecce le incorniciano il volto delicato. Sembra immersa nei suoi pensieri, e tra le braccia regge un maestoso tacchino. L’anno agricolo si chiude, è ora tempo di rendere grazie: e lei lo farà l’indomani assieme alla sua famiglia, serenamente raccolta attorno alla tavola imbandita.
La statuina che vedete in questa foto proviene da casa della mia nonna materna. L’avevo quasi dimenticata, e quando qualche settimana fa mia madre l’ha tirata fuori dalla credenza e me l’ha fatta vedere, mi sono ricordata delle tante storie che le costruivo intorno da bambina. Così me la sono fatta prestare e ho di nuovo giocato con lei, rendendola protagonista di una tavola per me molto speciale, il mio contributo al Thanksgiving tablescape blog hop organizzato da Chloe Crabtree .

I love your figurine Donna and that you can use your imagination to make up stories as it is so fitting for our Thanksgiving. I know it must be a bit tiresome of trying to come up with a “celebration” of sorts for a holiday that is not your own. So thank you for that. I also love your tablescape and the colors you have chosen are perfect. I will repeat what I always say that every tablescape in these blog hops are inspiring in some way and if one does not see it, or find a take-a-way, then they are not looking.

Donna, what a beautifully scripted and well-executed tablescape! The Lladro girl with turkey stands on the table as a soloist dancer would be highlighted on stage – so effective! The plates and place card holders against the neutral table are just as stunning. Happy Thanksgiving, dear blogging friend.
Sempre meravigliose le tue tavole. Questa sui toni del grigio è super chic e l’idea della statuina azzeccatissima.
Really lovely table Donna. What a wonderful figurine! Very special.
I enjoyed your commentary and your tablescape. The gray transferware is lovely paired with your Lladro figurine. I love that it is vintage and that it relates to your childhood.
Your table is creative and charming. It is nice to get to know you in these blog hops.
Isn’t it interesting how dishes bring cultures together!
You did a wonderful job with your Thaksgiving table. I like the dishes you chose and the Lladro figurine. The pumpkins and leaves scatttered added the perfect touch. Love the napkins adorned with the feather and pumpkin!
How special your Lladro figurine is. The gray transferware is lovely. Pumpkins and leaves add the special fall touch. Very charming table.
Thank you for joining us for our Thanksgiving celebration! You have set a beautiful table, your transferware and centerpiece are a perfect choice.
Minimalista ma raffinatissima: sono proprio i colori del nostro Nord, tra nebbie ed acquerugiole, che per contrasto fanno desiderare ed apprezzare il calore della casa, il ritrovarsi vicini a tavola, la ricchezza ed il colore dei piatti invernali…
Correggo: “dei cibi invernali…”
Donna, I have always loved Lladro, but have never owned a piece. The girl with the turkey is a stunning centerpiece and is perfect with your transferware. I so love that we have connected on the blog hops and through Instagram. You always inspire!
What a beautifully written post and the centerpiece gives off a quiet elegance. I’m happy that you are a part of this blog and wish you a peaceful holiday season.
Thank you for joining our Thanksgiving celebration! The figurine in the center of the table is so lovely, and the scattering of mini pumpkins is wonderful! I love the feather on the napkins too~ I wish you a wonderful holiday season Donna!
Donna, I love your gorgeous Thanksgiving tablescape! The ceramic figurine centerpiece is gorgeous. I love the guinea hen feathers on the napkins. Your gray patterned plateware is so pretty! Thanks so much for joining us – so happy to be hopping with you!
You would have no idea that you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, as you have interpreted it perfectly. The Lladro figurine makes the perfect centerpiece and blends so well wit the beautiful grey plates. Thank you so much for joining in another hop!
Come sempre un giusto mix di eleganza, ricordi, colori e . . . cuore! ❤
Donna, please don’t hesitate to participate. You always do a lovely job and Thanksgiving is a holiday to embrace everyone’s culture. I love the Lladro figurine ~ a sweet and perfect centerpiece with such meaning. The embellishment on the napkins is really nice too. Happy fall to you and your family.
Donna, I absolutely love your grey Transferware plates. I can’t believe you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, as anyone would recognize this as a Thanksgiving table, especially with the girl figurine holding the turkey. Well done! Have a happy holiday season!
What a beautiful tablescape! I love the dishes and all of the simple, natural touches. So happy to join this hop with you. I hope you have a blessed 2019!
