Thanksgiving 2012

I hope everyone had a delicious Thanksgiving this year!
Here are a few photos of my Thanksgiving day.
There are no food pictures because I was too busy eating all the deliciousness...
 I opted for a comfortable & festive ensemble for Thanksgiving, a thrifted skirt & a brown thermal borrowed from my sister. 
My mom had these table decorations sprinkled across the table, which she made out of vintage velvet & real acorn tops that had fallen from trees.
