Home decorating and entertaining

The November issue of Country Living includes panel screens, collectibles, Thanksgiving entertaining ideas (including paint sample colors placecards and labeled table runners), and home decorating suggestions--old and new can work well together (I'm glad they kept the original black and white checkerboard linoleum in the foyer).  And using a linen tablecloth as a coverlet is a cool idea.  Plus some of the best recipes I've seen in a while.  The Citrus-Cranberry Sauce (add grapefruit juice), Potato Gratin (rub the cooking dish with garlic first), and a Carmelized-Onion Galette (I think that's a tart) look and sound especially good.  The Spicy Pickled Green Beans (with dill) sounds good too.  'Course I love dill.  I must not forget the Sweet-Potato Spoon Bread with Caramel-Pecan Topping!
