Dirt Road Adventures – Thanksgiving Week

I really can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving week!

I have been rushing around like a chicken with it’s head cut off, trying to get the house decorated for Christmas!

Plus, I’ve been working on several DIY projects and I’m just exhausted. LOL

You may feel the same and this week is going to be crazy for most people.

Creative Christmas Table Setting with Reindeers from Casafina

Today, I thought I’d share a few things that you might be looking for this week.

Maybe a new recipe for Thanksgiving or a creative idea to get your decorating started.

I shared a Thanksgiving menu a month ago and if you missed it, you can see all the recipes here.

In addition, I shared 6 different Thanksgiving Table Ideas here.

In Case you Missed it

This week was all about Christmas and I shared this tablescape idea and these Christmas Dinner Recipes with you. Although they are shared as Christmas recipes, they would all be delicious for Thanksgiving day.

Christmas DIY Projects

One of my favorite projects was these Felt Christmas Trees. If you are looking for a fun project for this weekend, get your supplies ready!

The patchwork table cloth is the one I shared with you here, a few weeks ago.

Other Blog Adventures

I also shared how to decorate with your vintage and thrift store finds. See My Favorite Vintage Christmas Decorations here.

Check out this cute DIY tree project from Becky at Beyond the Picket Fence. This was shared by Ann at Dabbling & Decorating on this post.

Now is a great time to look for Christmas items while thrifting.

I’m sure that you will see a lot of donated items this weekend, because everyone will be pulling out their old decor and getting rid of items.

I love this rag ball garland from Piper Classics. The bird & tree print and snowflake napkin rings are also from Piper Classic.

I have a new rug from Boutique Rugs and I love the new feel to the room. Check out the Bolivar Rug. It has touches of rust, golds and blues on a neutral background. Perfect for fall and winter. I’m loving it with my Christmas colors this year.
