The old red table

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A few years back I stumbled across this old wooden table/bench at a yard sale.

I paid $5.00, shoved it into my car, and drove it home.

I use it as a planter on the porch

but this weekend I cleared the terra cotta off it, gave it a good scrubbing down,

and brought it into the living room.

I like the red colour for the season.


One pot chicken braised chicken and apple cider, potatoes, green beans
Egg roll in a bowl, rice
Cranberry, orange chicken breast, sweet potatoes, broccoli
meatloaf, potatoes, peas
one pan pork chops with apples and onions, rice
sage pumpkin pasta bake, salad
sheet pan steak and veggies
and of course....turkey

  1. Hello, I like your new (old) table. It looks pretty. Lovely family and images, pretty mosaic. Happy Monday, enjoy your day! Have a great new week! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Such a nice old table.
    I say yes to red ANYTHING this time of year!

  3. I LOVE the table!! It has a farmhouse look, but in such a classy and elegant way. Beautiful and simple. What a feast! And you made all of this? This is a wonderful family picture. Did you celebrate Thanksgiving early with them?

  4. Fun table! That turkey in your mosaic is perfection. :) Your meal plan for the week is impressive. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  5. Such a great little table!

  6. The table looks like it has been part of that room forever! Your mosaic is so warm and homey - perfect for the holiday season. And your menu has my mouth watering - bring on Thanksgiving!!! Thanks for adding a dash of red to Mosaic Monday today.

  7. A table with great character! Love the menu, and such a sweet photo of your family, I presume.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. I started drooling as I read your menu. May be time for me to go start the split peas.
    I like your red table. Very cool. Years ago, I painted an old wooden ladder red and stuck it in my living room. Has me wanting to do something like that again.
