I put away the turkeys for a while -- having tired of them -- turkeys were so "overdone" and became enamored with silver pheasants and quail which were on either side of the big blue bowl filled with pumpkins and gourds.
But after a while, I tired of the pheasants and quail and there the turkeys were sitting on the shelf . . . just waiting for their return to the dining room table!
I'm joining Chari at Happy to Design for Sunday Favorites.
These two little ceramic turkeys -- the first bought years and years ago -- actually, the second November after our wedding while his matching brother was bought after we moved to Linderhof. I like things in pairs!
And although as a new bride, hosting Thanksgiving was something I didn't even think about, I knew someday that the turkey would be perfect for the Thanksgiving table!
And he was!!! So much so, that I decided that I needed two!!!!
It's November and so the turkeys came home to roost. Nestled next to the bowl of pumpkins and bittersweet, filled with garden marigolds (and after the frost gets those, grocery store mums).
A bit of a change from an October table to a November one.
The turkeys will reside on the table until all of the fall finery is put away to be replaced by Christmas.
It's nice to have keep traditions -- even some as silly as these turkeys.
