I put the centerpiece together, just stuck the appropriate foliage in the basket.
Can you see the turkey candle stick holders?
There are tiny personal S&P shakers at the top left of each plate, too, which I think are so cute.
In November 2001, I bought this beautiful Norman Rockwell plate. It gave me such comfort to look at, since it was only two months after the horrible events of Sept. 11, 2001.
As the months went by, I bought the other three plates that are part of this collection called:
The Four Freedoms
Freedom from Want.
Freedom of Speech.
Freedom of Worship.
Freedom from Fear.
FDR delivered his State of the Union Address on Januray 6, 1941,
stating these four essential human rights.
This is the best picture I could get this evening.
This picture turned out pretty well, I think....but a little dark maybe?
