Thanksgiving Figurines and Cookie Cutters (of course!)

Happy Thanksgiving!   Thanksgiving means roast turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, fresh hot rolls and best of all, our families all together!   Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for our country and the opportunities  that are available to so many of us.  And of course, to remember our forefathers who set the stage for all of us.
I enjoy decorating for Thanksgiving; my favorite decorations are my Pilgrim and Native  American figurines!  They are not antiques, but are only a few years old.  They are all made of resin.
This Pilgrim couple is designed to look like a primitive wood carving, and is my favorite!

This pilgrim couple is a miniature version of the faux wood carving design.

According to legend, the Pilgrims may not have survived without the assistance of the Native Americans. This couple is also a version of the faux carved wood.

In preparation for Thanksgiving, I also made some Thanksgiving cookies for my friends and family.  I used the above cookie cutters for the larger cookies.

My kids gave me these cookie sets (fruits and vegetables) which I used for the cornucopias.
