This is such a fun month to decorate, I get to see all my turkeys again. This year, the kitchen counter is graced with a lovely bouquet of flowers that DH brought me recently, just because. The pretty apricot color flowers went nicely with a large turkey and a small pie pumpkin.
I like this grouping a lot. They are sitting on my Autumn Jubilee quilt along two-block mat. Speaking of quilt alongs, I have had a few new followers in the past couple of days, I think to participate with the Scrap Dance Waltz quilt along. I want to welcome to the newcomers, and I hope you like the variety you find on my blog. It is a lot of quilting, and a variety of other things too.
The colors in the flowers also go well with this turkey, the largest one I have. The little ones are salt and pepper shakers.
This collection gets a bit bigger from time to time, but it isn’t often that I find ceramic turkeys. I did find one earlier this year at the thrift store, and I was so excited about its coloring! I put it on the small bookcase table at the end of the kitchen counter, with the leaf decoupage plate and a cookbook for Thanksgiving. I needed to show you that I did in fact finish the replacement table topper I talked about in September. It matches the other one on the pie safe in the kitchen. Isn’t that border print cute?
Have I shown you these candles before? I have had them for a very long time, turkeys on the sides!
They are on the cookbook bookshelf, with the Thankful plate and another ceramic turkey. I choose a few books that sound like comfort food and bring to mind wonderful baking aromas.
I still have an autumn color quilt draped over a chair, it has been used on a chilly day while reading. The table topper is my Moda Bake Shop recipe called Maple Star, link on the sidebar.
The Autumn Jubilee mini quilt is still on the stand, and more turkeys are displayed with it. I put the leaf topper back on, and changed the jack-o-lantern back to a pumpkin. See the link to understand that statement if you weren’t following that quilt along. Some of my little tiny turkeys are set with this mini quilt. The cornucopia wall hanging is on the wall beside the cabinet.
I love these little guys, and I haven’t seen any like this in many years. They are about 2 inches high.
On the coffee table, I set a turkey on a wool applique penny rug I made a while ago. The Autumn Jubilee Wool Applique leaf penny rug is in the guest room now.
This is my most special turkey. It is one my mother bought when I was a child. It was carefully stored in her cedar chest each year, and brought out in November. It just seems like the holidays are here when it comes out at my house. It is a wax candle, and it cost 25 cents, the sticker is still on the bottom. Of course, that was a few years ago, LOL!!
Yes, there are many more turkeys around the house, on the bathroom counter, near the fireplaces, on the tables. I’ll show you the breakfast table tomorrow.
How are you decorating for Thanksgiving?
