Lets talk Turkey....

... about blogging, catching up, holidays, and everything else.  Okay?

OMG!  Can you believe it's November already?  I know right!  Time sure does have a way of flying by lately.  I do apologize for being such an inconsistent blogger, especially for those you whom may still be following me.  Mostly though, I just want to say a great big THANK YOU if you still do follow me!!!

Now for a little gobble, gobble, gobble.  I often feel like I have no business blogging at all lately.  I feel like this because I don't have the time, content, energy or commitment to devote to creating a beautiful blog.  I've tried so many time over the last few years to figure out where I want to go with this blog and why.    
I have given myself guidelines, that didn't work. I've taken long breaks but I always miss it so I come back with the intent of getting back into it regularly but then life gets in the way and I just don't have the passion that I see so many of you have to stick with it.  So I guess I must sort of be a seasonal blogger now because, this seems to be the time of year I share the most.  





So, with that in mind I hope you all don't mind that today I've popped back into blogland today to share my turkeys with you all.  It's a rainy Monday here and since I don't work on Mondays and it's Nov.2nd already it seemed like a good time to get those little gobblers out.  I've had my fall decor out for sometime now but not Thanksgiving yet.  This sweet little white Turkey dish is one of my favorites.  I can't figure out if it's a gravy dish or a candy dish though.  Any ideas?  I also had a wonderful brainstorm as I was cleaning out a china cabinet drawer this weekend.  I decided to pull out all my silver serving pieces; spoons, pie cutters, butter knives, etc.  Seems I'm always running around the day of trying to gather all these up from everywhere at the last minute.  I put them all together shown here in the picture above in my silverware caddy.  Big bonus, they will more then likely get polished ahead of time now too since I have them all out to see.  





I added my Turkey plates in front of my white Lenox dishes for fall display in the china hutch.  Yes, that's more silver in there that needs polishing soon.  I really want to make time to polish the silver this year.  I am not one to stress over it every year but sometimes ya just gotta do it.


I told you this post was all about the Turkeys didn't I? Sorry, but I'm not done yet, there are still more to go.   These cute little salt and peppas are some of my favorites.  I love the way they are sitting on top of the pumpkins.


Okay so maybe it's not totally just all Turkeys here, I had to share a few blessing signs as well!  I love this word BLESSING so much.  Do you?  I especially love seeing it.  I even have several pieces of jewelry with blessed on it as well.  I really don't need to be reminded that I am blessed but do need to be reminded to stop and make time to dwell on my blessings.  You see dwelling on all that I have been blessed with in life is so healthy for me.  It recharges my soul!  I especially love this time of year when it's so encouraged by all to dwell on our blessings. 



Talk about a blessing, this little one shown in the photo above has been an amazing blessing to us.  We love her so much!  She has grown so much since this photo.  I will need to do a whole post on her one day.  She's so cute and so so funny!



In the kitchen, I redid the bakers rack for Thanksgiving.  I felt compelled to get this set up today because early this morning I was online ordering a new tall pencil Christmas Tree for the kitchen.  Last year I didn't do a tree in the kitchen for the first time in years and I really missed it.  I have even less space in here for a tree then before because of table swaps and really don't want to do a whole lot of rearranging of furniture.  Hopefully the new tree which was on sale at, Michaels by the way will fit in nicely.  So now you know why, I had to get this Thanksgiving out right, guilty me!!!!




If you've made it this far and enjoyed what you saw please leave me a note.  I'd love to hear from you!  I do apologize that the quality of these photos may not be what you are used to seeing from me in the past.  I still have not quite mastered using my camera and downloading on my chromebook yet.  I can do it but it's quite a process and my iphone makes downloading to blogger a snap.  Soooo...this is what you are seeing, pics from my phone.  Yes, I also know that I could edit these photos better first with a few apps but again, I'm trying to be quick here because it seems the longer something takes me to do these days means it doesn't get done.  I'm hoping to slow down more one day, but it hasn't happened yet.


 Thank You so much for popping by today sweet friends, and for listening to the gobble, gobble, gobble.  I'm not sure if I'll get another post out before the big day and before we are all in gobble till you wobble mode.  LOL!  Love this!!!!  Just in case I don't, I would like to wish all of you a very
 Happy Thanksgiving!!!
&
Happy Fall Y'all!!!!
