~ Blue Turkey's Found ~

Hi everyone, hope you all had a great weekend. On Saturday Lisa and I went to the movies and saw Morning Glory...cute, cute movie, we both liked it. Plus there was the peddlers faire this past weekend and I did find........ some nice turkey's with blue markings. I love this set, kinda hard to tell from the picture but their back and tail feathers are a very pretty shade of blue and look at this....
little fella. He is very tiny and had the brightest blue head...I'm happy and now my collection is complete. Can you believe Thanksgiving is just 10 day away? Time to order your turkey...hugs, Linda

Gobble~ Gobble~Gobble

You better speak one knows what "gobble, gobble, gobble", means...oops sorry. It's turkey's just us turkey's...... wishing everyone a great weekend.............
us too, we're new this year.................
me too. Are you from the WX Peddler's Faire? Yes, and I think we are the last..
We're from there too...and we're glad we're here too. Not everyone likes purple turkey's. The WX is this weekend and I bet we have more friends come to live with us. I don't think so. Linda said "the collection is closed", well we'll just have to wait and see. Hey, hey, don't' forget us.....over here, on the side-car.....
We want to say happy weekend to everyone too...."gobble, gobble, gobble."

This picture is....

"The Angelus" by Jean Francois Millet. I think it is wonderful and it's a favorite of mine. My friend Michelle and her sister both have this print....I was the last to find it at an antique faire, and was really happy when I spotted it, can't remember which faire, maybe WX. Anyway, I just love it! The first time I saw it and each time I look at it, it always reminds me of Thanksgiving. I imagine the young couple offering a prayer of thanks for their bountiful harvest, to be enjoyed at a Thanksgiving celebration.

To learn about the artist and the actual story of this picture click on his name....or you can just enjoy mine...hugs, Linda

~ The Turkeys Are Here ~

Today has been the busiest day, yesterday I was gone all day and when I did get home I was just too tired to put all our Halloween decoration I did that this morning. After getting all that tucked away it was time to get the turkeys out. That was a huge... job but I'm happy to say I'm finished decorating for Thanksgiving and that is a wonderful feeling. I bought this blue turkey plate last year and just love it mixed with all my moonstone week at the peddlers faire I'm going to be hunting for some blue all my years of collecting gobble gobblers I don't remember ever seeing any. Have you?? After I find them my turkey collection is closed...I never thought I'd say that because I love the little fellas but enough is enough. I'll be sharing pictures in the days to come....have a nice evening...hugs, Linda
