Turkey Decor and More


I'm doing easy and simple for my Thanksgiving Decor...plus I don't have much and I decorate for Christmas right after Thanksgiving day.Bow window in the dining area, above and fireplace mantle below. I altered the banner on the mirror.




I took this picture today of JB...he has his perch on top of an old chest with his dog bed, looking outside and enjoying the view.








I know the "chamber pot" is a little chippy, missing it's handles...it still had to come home with me and live in my bathroom. See the picture below...her name is "Betty" and she will find a new home next to the other new ones in the living room. Don't you love old sheet music. The little needlework pieces are "rugs" that the older lady made for her doll houses. These were extra ones that had to come home too! See the old cow bell? I would LOVE to have a collar of old cow bells. They are SO expensive...





The estate sale is all over and not all the items were sold. I'm not sure what will happen to the left overs.
Now...I can think about getting ready for the sale at HQ which is on the 19th...and it's a Christmas theme. I have a few totes of Christmas items to mark. I am so in the mood to craft and hope to do some this weekend. No estate sales for us this weekend. Gotta get the house in order, rake up leaves and a few more projects.
Happy treasure hunting to those of you who are going!!!
Warmly,
Deb :)

I did not drag out any of my Halloween decorations because everyone was sick here....and I don't have any Thanksgiving ones...so I guess I will just wait for Christmas to get here. I have lots and lots for that.

You always seem to find some neat stuff. I have an addiction to old sheet music...I love the covers of some of those! So nostalgic.

Thank you SO much for your kind words and emails. You have lifted my spirit so much. I treasure you, dear friend. Thank you!

Deb, What a fun post! I wish I decorated for Thanksgiving. Your plates are beautiful! If you lived in Ohio, you would already be decorated for Christmas! I kid you not! Halloween goes up Sept 1, Christmas Nov 1. There is always a holiday being celebrated in my town! Fun to catch up and visit. Have a lovely weekend! Elizabeth

Hi Deb! I definitely like what you did with the Give Thanks banner. You can see the letters so much better that way!
I think easy and simple is the way to go for Thanksgiving decorating. We want to get it down quickly so that we can start bringing on the Christmas, right?!

my dog sits on top of our chest with his dog bed on it so he doesnt scratch it up and loos out the window! That is too funny! great decorations!

Margaret Cloud said...

A very nice post and your items are so gorgeous, I sure like the chamber pot, it is prettier than the old bucket we used at night as kids, ha, ha. Your dog is so cute, makes me miss mine. I am surprised you did not bring home half the estate sale, your decorations are pretty, I like to put old doilies under mine also. Thank you for coming by, have a nice week end.

I love you Thanksgiving decor. The window looks so pretty.

Wow, the estate sale is finally over. That was a huge event!

I wonder how many people you have at your house for Thanksgiving dinner???

Have a really fun weekend.

Sher said...

You do have a special touch! I've never really decorated for Thanksgiving. We go straight from Halloween to Christmas. I should really give more respect to the pilgrims.

Joy said...

Love your Thanksgiving decorations, seeing the milkglass turkey reminds me that I have some milkglass turkey salt and pepper shakers that I didn't get out yet.
LMK what you think of the Shack.
