Unfortunately in England we don't really celebrate Thanksgiving, however I love the whole tradition behind it of being with your family, celebrating what you're thankful for, and eating a whole lot of food!

Hi everyone! Just thought I would do a short post on how I have decorated the house for Autumn this year.
