Talkin' Turkey ~

So many bloggers are decorating for Christmas.  Geez, it was just last week I got out my turkeys!

These are vintage candy containers from the Fanny Farmer Candy Company.

Turkey candles . . .

Vintage papier mache turkeys, some of them candy containers, some marked Germany.

It wouldn't be Thanksgiving if I didn't display ceramics my dear mom painted.  This was one of her favorite pieces ~ mine, too :)

Only one more day of work this week.  I took a vacation day on Wednesday and have to be at the airport at 6:35 am to pick up my older son and his girlfriend.  It will be wonderful to have him home!!!  I will spend a good part of the day baking pumpkin roll.  My son and my niece (who always comes from Chicago for the holiday) would mutiny if they didn't have pumpkin roll ~ and at least one to take home with them!

Thanks so much for stopping.
Pug hugs :)
