Thanksgiving Mantel

Halloween things were packed away today and out came the turkeys.  I love collecting turkeys, especially turkey platters and antique turkey candles.  I spent a little time today changing my mantel to a Thanksgiving theme.








I found these three antique candles in a shop in Roanoke.


These turkey candles were made locally.  I found the larger turkey on sale in a cute shop in Staunton that is now closed.


I’ll showcase more of my turkey collection during this month.

Be sure to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for this week’s Metamorphosis Monday.
