Vintage Thanksgiving Greetings!

It's been a glorious day here at Still Woods Farmhouse.  The last of the pumpkin pies are in the oven and smell wonderful. A pot of beef stew is bubbling away on the stove for dinner.  A large pan of cornbread for cornbread dressing is heading in the oven next.  I can't wait to cut a square hot from the oven, slather it with butter and drizzle on a little molasses. What a treat!

I wanted to share with you a few vintage Thanksgiving greetings and magazine covers.  Maybe while you are waiting for your pies to come out of the oven, you can relax with a cup of tea or coffee and  enjoy these images from yesteryear.

I know this mamma is happy to have her sailor home for Thanksgiving!
Please say it isn't so!  I confess...I did love these Banquet dinners when I was little.  Whenever we had them, they seemed like such a treat.  
A simmering-talking pot!
This adorable girl is eyeing the turkey! I am curious about the article by Demaree Bees listed at the bottom of the cover!
Vintage cards are always wonderful expressions of art.  This one is no exception.
Wonder what this little Pilgrim is telling the chicken?
Another nostalgic Saturday Evening Post. What a difference in the football uniforms of today and those of 1928?
Hmmm...maybe they should have plucked and roasted the turkey first!
I have never had a pumpkin pecan pie.  How about any of you?
I guess home makers have been making pies for ages!
Anticipation...I am not so sure about that turkey!  Looks a little diseased.
Over the river and through the woods...
This is a 1914 edition of The Saturday Evening Post.
Lastly, I leave you with this beautiful card.
Many blessings to you and yours this Thanksgiving from
Lynda at Still Woods Farmhouse!

  1. You are way ahead if the game---tomorrow I'll get to work on major cooking and baking. I love your vintage images---we aren't the first or last to prepare for Thanksgiving with all our heart:)

    1. Happy Thanksgiving Jane! I got a head start on all the baking and cooking. We are packing as much in during the next three days. I just "royal icing glued" together our little mini gingerbread village so that we can decorate those after dinner tomorrow. I won't get my boys back until close to Christmas, so we are doing our little tradition early! Whew...looking forward to relaxing with a cup of coffee and a slice of pumpkin pie!

  2. That was very charming! Loved it! Thanks for putting that together for us to enjoy! And YES! I loved those banquet dinners! We always had them when our parents went out and we had a babysitter! Ha! Remember the brownie in the tray! Anyway, happy thanksgiving! We have a lot to be thankful for,!!am

    1. Good Morning Cindy! I forgot about the little brownie in the tray! My favorite was the berry cobbler "like" dessert. We would have to eat the other trays before we could touch the dessert tray. Thanks for bringing back a wonderful memory!
