Maybe these pictures can offer some inspiration.

 I'm in the middle of decorating for Christmas.  The house is cluttered with full and empty boxes.  We have the same dilemma every year...where to put things.  It just isn't big enough to set decorations out.  Somewhere in the attic, I have a set of Christmas dishes.  They haven't seen the light of day in about 7 years.  Why have them, you say?  Because I love them and if I had to buy them today, they would be too expensive.  So, there they stay for the time being.   
  My pumpkin yielded 3 pies and I still have about 1 1/2 cups of pulp left to use.  Maybe soup today?  Have a  Happy Thanksgiving.
