A Turkey Trot...

This week my friend Alison from The Polohouse did a funny post about her Vintage Gobblers...which she thinks are ugly, but they really are great!  She inspired me to share a few of my funny looking birds, too!  I often line them up down the center of the Thanksgiving table...a turkey trot, so to speak! The grandchildren are always amused by them!  This big platter always is on the table, too!  Setting out these pieces always bring wonderful family gatherings to mind...

There are several sets of vintage turkey salt and pepper shakers...

and some colorful planters...

this is a little old chalkware pair...

and even some vintage Gurley candles...

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays...a special time of counting our blessings, family traditions, and sharing a special meal!  This year, we are blessed that all of our children will be joining us for Thanksgiving dinner!  I hope you all have a wonderful week and a Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends!

I am joining Suzanne at Privet and Holly's Monday Moments 

Until next time...

  8. Your turkeys look very fun all strutting their stuff! They really are not attractive looking birds, are they. I love that your grand children enjoy them, and thrilled for you that you will have all of your children around you for Thanksgiving. What a blessing!!!
    Have a beautiful week and a blessed Thanksgiving.
    Love and hugs, Cindy

  9. Cute idea to trot the turkeys out on the Thanksgiving table. I'm always amused by the planters, because they seem like a weird item. I have a white one that I never quite know what to do with at Thanksgiving. Right now he's just sitting on a pedestal with a big gaping hole in his back and no plants in site.

  10. What a great collection. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!Gobble, Gobble.

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I Love, Love the idea of gobblers running down your dining room table. You have a great collection. I had to play catch up on your blog so here's my faves in no particular order.

    & the vinyl letters on your door. (Ive got to visit that etsy shop)
    Hope your week is happy, healthy & creative!

  29. I love your turkey trot! That is absolutely the perfect Thanksgiving display and a fabulous collection.
    I worked late hours last week and didn't have a chance to do a Thanksgiving type post. I posted about a new store. That was odd for me because I'm a vintage type gal. So it truly made me appreciate your very Thanksgiving post. Wonderful!
    I hope you had a very Happy Thanksgiving and are enjoying the weekend.

  30. I love, love, love your turkey collection! Thanks for stopping by my blog:)
    'hugs from afar'

  31. Love the turkey trot. Wow, where did the holiday go?

  32. I love them, I'm sorry to say I don't own one turkey, how could that be?? Well, since it's past Thanksgiving I am going to wish you a Merry Christmas. Hum, it seems a little early for that, but it will be here before you know it!!


  33. Oh my, what a collection! I think they are very funny. Who knows, maybe they will become popular like owls or squirrels! I love the turkey trot...lol!
