Not Quite What I Had Planned...

"Gobble~Gobble" You & I have the same turkey!!! Only I ordered mine online years ago. I don't have a ladle to go with him, but I usually just serve my stuffing from him. Right now, he is full of leftover Halloween candy. :/

He looks great on your table!

Thanks for stopping by. That tureen is very cool. You have an eye for a tablescape. I need help over here.

Sarah said...

OK, I'm pretty envious of that white turkey. I've been searching for a simple white turkey tureen for several years. Loved seeing this one on your table. Gives me hope that I too will find one. LOL
Blessings to you and your family. ~ Sarah

This looks so lovely Mimi and your new Turkey looks perfect. I also love the way you have photographed each of your steps in creating the setting-very helpful for a relatively new tablescaper like me!
Best wishes, Natasha.

Beautiful table, loved all your turkeys. I bought one of the wooden turkeys at the thrift store not to long ago, but I haven't used it in a tablescape yet. Thanks for showing all your creativity and for visiting.

Unknown said...

Great tablescape! Love the tablecloth especially :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I see in you love to collect dishes. Me, too!
It's a sickness, isn't it? Just wish it didn't take up so much room, eh?

Very pretty - you have some great Goodwill finds!
Happy Thanksgiving :)

Wendy said...

It was so nice of you to visit my blog today! Thank you :)
What a great find at Goodwill! I love the white turkey. I read through some of your other post and I couldn't agree with you more about thrift shopping. Every time I think, we are not going to go this Sat...I worry...what great find I might miss.
