Thanksgiving Greetings!

The big day is almost upon us and the mad preparations have begun.  
I want to share some of my Mom's vintage Thanksgiving postcards with you 
and a wonderful recipe for Aunt Dottie's Quick Pickled Peaches.

Look at this gorgeous rafter of turkeys
great vintage colors and of course, I love the cottage in the background.  

The Bounty of Fall - that says it all!

Another rafter of wonderful turkeys and yes, another cottage in the distance...

Don't forget to share the wishbone!

Love the use of the stars and stripes in this one. 
The American holiday!

And as promised, the recipe for Aunt Dottie's Quick Pickled Peaches.   
She made these for us at Thanksgiving more than 25 years ago and we have been enjoying them ever since.  I always think of her and our Thanksgivings together whenever I whip these up!
So easy and so good.
Thanks, Aunt Dottie!  Happy Thanksgiving!

Aunt Dottie's Quick Pickled Peaches

2 large (29 oz) cans of Cling Peach Halves
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
2 whole 3" cinnamon sticks
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1 teaspoon whole allspice

Boil the syrup drained from the peaches with the vinegar, brown sugar and spices for 5 minutes.
Add the peaches and simmer for five more minutes.  Let stand in syrup overnight, in the refrigerator.
Serve with or without the whole spices - I left them in, because in my new found career 
as a blogger/ food stylist, I think they look so elegant.


Happy Thanksgiving to All!

Pin It!


  1. I was just at Jewel and the lines were long. It's that time of year. Thanks for your nice images. Hope we can try your recipe one day.
    Happy Thanksgiving,

  2. Another wonderful array of postcards. I think I will try the recipe too.

    Happy Thanksgiving Erin. I am thankful you are my friend.
