happy thanksgiving

this is a photo of my grandfather. i have fond memories of arriving at their house for thanksgiving: grandmother and aunts wearing aprons putting on the finishing touches. i would slip downstairs {completely bypassing the cocktail table with creamed herring ewww} and snag a mini snickers and a faygo from the workroom stash. then i would come upstairs and admire the surroundings. grandmother was an amazing artist, clothing designer, and seamstress. she made the curtains in the background of this photo. and i loved inspecting every knick knack and detail in their home. everything seemed to have a lovely story. and this photo brings back so many lovely stories and memories. and since my grandparents have passed this photo has inspired me to host thanksgiving year after year. and i love love love to do it. what may be the best part about this photo as my thanksgiving hostess inspiration is that i noticed the date stamp along the bottom. april. hahaha. and grandpa is carving a ham. aaaand this photo was taken on easter. ha! happy thanksgiving!
