    It's your front-row seat to the I Gotta Create! Thanksgiving Day Parade! Our "floats" are SPECTACULAR!  {Macy's got nothin on us} Let's get started! You can click on any text link to visit the artist for a full helping of their creativity:

The parade opens with a welcoming front door. Michelle at Faith, Trust & A Little Pixie Dust warmly invites us over. Love that wreath and pillow. {Bonus: a beautiful banner and other decor to show you.}

Outside, this whimsical quilted flag at The Goat Granny promises a fun time!

So does Henry's New Hair over at Cottage and Broome. You'll giggle before you gobble!

Gotta decorate the inside of the house! We'll use this beautiful garland of fall leaves from Make The Best of Things. {Need more? She has a lighted hurricane lamp and wreath to show you.}

And visit the gratitude gallery of family photos on a newly stenciled wall from The House Undone...

...Along with this lovely trash-to-treasure side table from My 1929 Charmer! How did she do that?

You can't have this holiday without Pumpkins. We harvested these of sweaters and twine from That's My Story

...And went with an unconventional paper chain from Home Sweet Homemade. {Many paper creations, including paper oak leaves to share.}

Let's get out this vintage Thanksgiving Planner from Choux-Choux and check off our to-do list. 

Of course, the Canadians already celebrated Thanksgiving, as we learned from Simcoe Street.

But for Americans, it's time to put on our aprons. Robin's Road serves up some beauties.

I'll take a side of necklace to go with that! from Katalina Jewlery

...And we'll bring the hosts these flower pins from Our Everyday Art. Or even some fabulous Scrabble Coasters - that will be a hit!

So. What are we cooking? It's listed on this zany Turkey Menu Chalkboard from The Shady Porch! {She also has some unique flowers for you.}

What? We need a bigger menu? How about these chalkboards from Mandy over at The Project Queen. Complete with a tutorial :) 

Sounds like we need a buffet to hold all that extra food for the crowd. Let's use Emily's redo from Emily's Upcycled Furniture.

And decorate it with this mood-setting candlescape from Rustique Art.

We'll set the kids' table with the sweetest little corn napkin rings {go see what they're made of!} from Reading Confetti...

...and alternate every other setting with these adorable napkin rings from Crafting In The Rain!

Which will all go perfectly with these corn on the cob candles from Chrissy's Crafts. {Bonus: her pinecone candle holders and fall jello treat!}

We'll dress up the adult table in style using rustic vintage finds from Eclectically Vintage. Check out her silverware garland, too!

We'll set the Table of Honor with these creatively mind-blowing place cards that Finding Secret Treasures made from bed springs!

Here's the turkey for the table and for once, the burnt edges are a GOOD thing! See how its done at Bumble Briar Boutique. {along with her sofa table construction and autumn blocks!}

Let's not forget to feed the pets! They're waiting for you at Crafted Niche. Don't miss this simple and fantastic tutorial!

East Coast Mommy even remembered that the birds need a Thanksgiving meal, too. An easy, fun project with the kids.

Once the meal is over for all grateful beings, let's grind up some beans from Uncommon's Apothecary Jars for a good cup of coffee...

And grab some of The Artsy Girl Connection's fabulous dessert...

And then go relax in our basement reno compliments of Oasis Accents!

...Snuggle up in a cozy sweater from Easy Peasy Grandma

...and this quilt from Michelle's Romantic Tangle.

And try not to fall asleep on All Artful's gorgeous pillow after all that food and fun.

Oh, who am I kidding? No time for napping. We gotta go get our craft on in Shabby Love's  new studio. 

Sooo many ideas from this parade! To track it all, I need a fancy bulletin board from LoveFeast Table.

For now, I gotta go make some last name letter photos like these from From Gardners 2 Bergers for Christmas gifts. She'll show you how.

...Or a pallet project, like Marvelously Messy did. Lovely Thanksgiving hues.

What are you going to create next?  Please do come share it at the Winter Wonderland linky party! Doors are open :) Stop by and browse.
