Halloween is over and it’s time for some of my favorite decorations, turkeys! I’ve been collecting Thanksgiving things for a number of years and very much enjoy the few short weeks that they will be on display.
Love my Byer Thanksgiving couple, particularly the turkey the man is holding. Note the stamp on the platter; it originally was a freebie advertisement from a business.
Mama found this giant turkey platter at Buffalo Springs Herb Farm in Raphine. Sadly it is no longer in business. She generously added it to my collection.
I found this turkey platter a few years ago on Election Day when we had a teacher workday and I went out for lunch like a normal person. Instead of eating lunch, I went antiquing and came home with this beauty. The two turkeys beside it have been with me since the early ‘90’s.
Pilgrims and a cornucopia are a must for Thanksgiving décor.
Mama bought the lidded turkey for me last year in Manteo. I actually saw it a few months earlier and resisted buying it. When I opened it, I knew exactly where she found it!
These antique candles are my favorite turkeys.
This plastic platter, a $1.37 Goodwill find, is too big for this spot, but I couldn’t find anywhere else to use it. I can see it from my sofa when I’m napping at night and it makes me happy.
These old family Thanksgiving postcards have great designs.
Mama also recently surprised me with this turkey flower container. I’m using it as a remote holder. The beeswax turkey is locally made and getting old but it still smells fabulous.
My dad’s squirrel nutcracker isn’t just for Thanksgiving, but he’s too fabulous not to show.
I think he looks a bit evil.
Especially when he opens his mouth!
Back to turkeys! There’s a turkey on my porch.
And finally, I added two beeswax turkeys to my mantle. I’ll enjoy my turkeys for a few weeks and then it will be time for the big decorating event, Christmas!
Do you decorate for Thanksgiving? The decorations aren’t easy to find!
