Favorite Things- Vintage Turkey Collection

 Hi friends,

Today I'm just sharing with you some of my favorite things.


My collection started by happy accident as many of my collections do....

you know, you find one here and there and soon it happens.








My birthday is in November.

Each year my Mom takes me on a day trip "Antiquing ".

There's  a lot of talking, laughing, shopping and eating.

I look SO forward to it! Just the two of us.

I am so blessed to have my Mom with me and I cherish our time.




The stores are decorated for Thanksgiving and just starting to bring

out some Christmas.




These ceramic turkeys are all shakers....mismatched and found or gifted one at a time.




They are so colorful.




I love my turkey candles!

They were made by Gurley Candle Co. in the late 30's through the 60's

in Buffalo, New York.






Here is the identifying label.









Can you believe these cuties were originally 10 cents?




This whimsy ceramic turkey makes me smile.

He's a shaker-



I put in a wagon with a pumpkin.




I've had this paper turkey for many years.



The honeycomb paper is getting brittle. I usually just leave it closed.



I added to my post card collection.

I was able to find some more from artist Ellen Clapsaddle.



I plan to use these turkey plates for Thanksgiving.






We have this blue and white platter hanging in our living room year round.



This round white platter is 16''. 

I found it years ago at a thrift shop. It  had a pile of other plates stacked on top.



I love the picture.



Thanksgiving will be very different this year, 

but I hope you will still be able 

to be with your loved ones!

Enjoy your many Blessings!

  8. Thank you for showing your collection. I have many Gurley candles too. I love your dishes and the ceramic turkeys. I especially enjoyed the detail that the one platter was in a stack of dishes. Sometimes you had to dig deep for the treasures.
