Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thankgiving to my readers in the United States.  I thought I'd share some of my Thanksgiving-related finds from over the years.  No special story behind these, just things I liked and now use.  First up are some honeycomb decorations.  We had a Hallmark honeycomb turkey when I was a kid. It was our sole Thanksgiving decoration.  My sister and I would fight over assembling it.


Next up are some porcelain pieces along wtih some Gurley candles.  The pitcher is Hall Autumn Leaf pattern that was popularized through the Jewel Tea company.  My grandmother had an entire set.  The turkeys are 1950's made in Japan.

The fellow on the right below is odd man out. I don't think he's suppoesd to be a turkey, his coloring isn't right.  What do you think?

These are salt and pepper shakers.  The woman I bought them from said her mother sat them out at every Thanksgiving.  I told her I would continue the tradition.

I love the little half pumpkin spoon below.  Very delicate and it scares me to sit it out. It goes well with the little pumpkin lidded compote.

The little plastic Native American boy is from the St. Labre Indian School in Montana.  We had a boy and girl sitting on our dresser when I was a kid.  My parents donated to them for years and they would send little gifts like these.

The owl candle below is a recent find and a leftover from Halloween.  But what's Thanksgiving without leftovers?

I really like this shelf-sitting Native American. But he makes me really nervous sitting there, teetering on the edge over our hearth.

And that's my collection of Thanksgiving.  If you're celebrating, have a Happy Thanksgiving.  Save me the neck!


  1. I got a lot of Halls bowls - 2 in that pattern. I love them. I hope you enjoyed a very happy Thanksgiving with family.

    1. Thanks, Lady M. The family gets smaller and smaller every year, but we had a nice Thanksgiving with those that were there. I hope you had a great one.

  2. That is probably the most Thanksgiving items I have seen one person display! Hope you and yours had a good holiday!

    1. Thanks, Joe. We did. Hope you had the same.

  3. That's not a's the unholy union of a puffin and a peacock!
