White Wednesday, Vintage White Turkeys on Parade!

This last weekend I had my hubby help me with a little furniture moving. It was a domino effect. You know, you move one piece, then that requires cleaning and vacuuming and then moving something else. And thank you Lord for the inventors of "sliders", because without them, I would have had to wait for another set of hands.

I found this white sideboard several years ago and had it for sale. When I moved out of that store the sideboard was moved into my studio. It was really too large for that space, but I didn't want to let it go. I had a plan somewhere in the dark recesses of my brain for later use.

So into the kitchen hallway, and out with the black bench. (downstairs it went) I have a lot of furniture, and a lot of "display" space, but this will be dedicated to seasonal and holiday decor. It will be wiped clean with each new season, and I will finally have a place to display all the great vintage "stuff" that clutters up my other pieces.

I have a lot of seasonal vintage prints that haven't had a spot. Now they can be a focal point for this hallway each time the season changes. This is a print from the early 1900's. The frame is "newer", but I have another companion print. The other is downstairs. This one was stashed in a storage room, unused.

Here are a few of my vintage turkeys
gathering on the sideboard.

This plucky fella was just too colorful for me,
so he got a slap of white paint.

I have a collection of Vintage turkey platters.
 This fellow is Johnson Brothers.
This year I'm giving each of the girls their own platter.

Say "Hello" to Kathleen and all the other White Wednesday
 participants at Faded Charm.

Hope your turkeys are tastier than these.

From my house to yours...
Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.

P.S. Since I have had a few hair-pulling blogger incidents of late, I will post the wonderful indoor displays of my recent Seed Box Open House tour a bit later. This will give you something to come back for!
