I can't even remember when I started collecting turkeys. Originally, I was only going to collect vintage little gobble, gobblers but over the years my collections has evolved into a wide variety of the feathered bird. Here is part of my favorites,...oops, I shouldn't say favorites I really don't want any ruffled feathers. This turkey is a reproduction . I love his color and the lid comes off so you can use it as a candy dish or serving piece.
All the turkeys on the sidecar are rather old. This sweet pine cone turkey Lisa made for me when she was a bluebird.....I can't believe it, but that was over 35 years ago. Time does fly.
I love the little candle turkeys. On the bottom of each one is the original sticker with the manufacturers name and priced 29cents. I'm so glad they were never burned.
Look at this guy, he is just too cute. This handsome fellow is crafted from tulle, and just makes me smile. My husband found him at the WX peddlers faire last month. This Sunday is the faire, I wonder if we can find him a partner?
This is a perfect serving piece, but for me I just enjoy displaying it. This piece I found last year at the WX, hope I find a treasure or two on Sunday.

My Blessings
Blessing ~ 6 ~ My friends old and new. Always there, through good times and not so good times.
Blessing ~ 7 ~ Meeting such wonderful blogging friends. Even though we haven't met in person, I feel as if I do know you. You all are a inspiration and it's a pleasure sharing and celebrating with you.
Blessing ~ 8 ~ Sweet Lilly we found each other just at the right time.

I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new. ..........Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happy weekend everyone ~ Linda

Mom, Havnt posted on your blog for sometime but look often. Everything looks so nice! I love that you added the music player, your song picks are awesome, especially over the rainbow. All the gopple gopplers look great, I really like the 1 Dad found at WX.. I hope you find some nice ones on Sunday and maybe you will be lucky enough to find some vintage christmas decoration too.

I love you, Lisa

p.s. Blessings: I know I dont say it nearly enough but I am truly blessed to have you and daddy as my parents. I thank God everyday for you being cancer free for over 5 years and daddy doing well after his heart surgery almost 5 years ago.

I love your turkey collection, Linda. I only have a few of them, but enjoy bringing them out during November to celebrate this lovely month of Thanksgiving.
Your new plate in the post up above is going to be a nice addition.
Best wishes to you!
