A little tweaking makes it Thanksgiving...


Drum roll please...
"The Late Fall Mantel"
da ta da da!!

OK, hope you know I'm kidding.


Just a matter of bringing out the turkeys 
in exchange for the snowy owls.


I've kept everything else that I started with back in September. My mantel has been through a few change outs, but now that it's Thanksgiving, most of it will be swapped out for Christmas in just a little over a week.






Here's the Mid Fall Mantel



and the "Super Early Fall Mantel"...


you can see I tweaked the flowers a little too.

Now my Johnson Bros. Turkey Platter gets center stage.


A few small changes in the Entry



 with a white turkey covered vegetable...


same for the hallway sideboard;
you guessed it...
more turkeys.


another turkey platter...
(I got more folks)


Salt and Pepper turkeys


big fat turkey painted white...
(He used to be multi colored but was obnoxiously loud,
so he was slapped with the paintbrush)


I'm not done with the turkeys.
You have to suffer through at least one more post of them.
maybe more...

Be sure and come by tomorrow and visit
for some Etsy and Online Boutique Shopping Fun!

Thanks for putting up with all my craziness,
Have you seen the chipmunk video?
it's a must see!!

  7. Wow...you have a lot of those little gobblers! Your mantels are always such inspiration (you must hear that all the time, but I really do come here and leave with ideas). Seeing your turkey platter reminds me I have two! I don't need those until the big day so guess where they are going?!!

    Have a great evening, Debra!

    XO,

  15. Debra,
    I so love your ceilings! I love the decor (especially those arrangements on mantle), but couldn't take my eyes off those exposed beams and high ceilings. Gorgeous!!

  24. Debra, you make it look so simple, but I know a lot of thought goes into each and every display you come up with. Just when I think you have to run outta ideas...bam...you do it again.

  29. I think you have been over run with turkeys. I have a pin that says "Some of my best friends are turkeys." But seriously how did you get all those platters? Love them. You could do an e-book on mantels. xo, olive
