Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

Just a note to wish you a "Happy Thanksgiving Eve," and to share a tip that might come in handy tomorrow. But first, I'd like to share the centerpiece I just made for my dining table ...

I hope you won't need it, but just in case ... here's the tip:

How to remove candle wax from a tablecloth:

To remove candle wax that has dripped on your Thanksgiving tablecloth, first harden the wax by putting a plastic sandwich bag filled with ice on it. Next, scrape off as much as possible with a dull knife or a credit card.

Put the tablecloth between two pieces of paper from a brown paper bag and iron the "sandwich" on low heat until the remaining wax melts into the paper.

Wash the tablecloth with a detergent.

Lovely!! I love the natural and non-fussy (and such a good use of things that you can eat later!) and yet looks like something out of a magazine. Well done!
