Happy Thanksgiving Canada

Leaving tomorrow for Ireland and England so not sure how I will get along with the ipad, so thought I better get on before I get away and not able to do any posting. So I'm going to be early with Thanksgiving and late for Sandi, but then being late, means I'm going to be early, next week- but I'm going to do both. So first I'm going to join Sandi with What's in your Cabinet
first this is for Sandi, have the same one and I do love it...

shouldn't have turned on the light, but you get the idea. This cabinet came from my grandmother, I use it for my Chapel Hill china, but seeing it is on the table have a silver china tea set. This cabinet is to only be white/turquoise/blue and silver. Alot of Shelley - its blue with pink flowers but blue is the main trim.

haven't used this teapot yet, will in coming weeks.

this is the cabinet with my dining room suite,
two shelves are pinks -Serena, Royal Winton on second shelf with more Serena...

the Serean, it is so pretty

Royal Winton, pieces, odd Shelley, pinks...

Top shelf is blue, Shelley pieces

Red china-Royal Winton
Another pink/red cabinet -red transferware mostly here

Some new pieces but mostly old, their is a couple of more cabinets that
I will show another time...

Now for Thanksgiving, below my turkey teapot, came from the Cracker Barrel about 8-9 years ago, also a soup tureen, that I haven't gotten out.

As I mentioned above we leave for holidays tomorrow night, having an auction first and then flying out later. My grandson has been begging for an apple pie, so I did some baking today, three pies-one for my parents, one for daughter and husband and ....
Here is one of the pies

and here is the other two, isn't this top one cute. I did it in a aluminum pie plate, picked it up and pie palte folded-so Frank is eating this one today and tomorrow before we leave. Have to say that's the first time I have ever done that, and hope it is the last. I have never used the tin pie plate and never will again...

my pink rose cookie jar, for Pink Saturday, which I will be joining tomorrow, also, October is breast cancer month, the pink is for all the women and men suffering from breast cancer...

                          this is my Thanksgiving tea, the pie still tasted good, so I'm told

Royal Albert, Canadian cup n saucer, with provincial flowers

another Canadian/American  England is stamped in it

to commemorate the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway, 1952
so again Happy Thanksgiving Canadian bloggers, God bless
