Thanksgiving Vignette

I found this adorable gobbler at Pier 1 already marked down.  I was drawn into it's cuteness immediately.  It's loaded with natural feathers and I love the whimsical rosy wreath!

This wood top is on a wall that leads to the basement level.  I always have something on it one way or another.  (I had my cast iron flying pig on display at first but the other picture I took with the turkey picture was blurry)

The little blue pumpkin came from Pier 1 and I wanted to make more use of it so I decided to embellish it with faux berries, gourds, acorns and pine cones.  Kind of a harvest basket look in a small dough bowl.

This whole set up fell together after I was removing things from the kitchen table from one of my tablescapes.  I was piling things on the wood top and I decided to play with it and make more of it.

The turkey is better in person than what their on-line picture reflects.  

I like how the WoodWick Candle crackles ever so much when it's lit.  It burns slowly and the fragrance isn't overpowering.

This will be nice to view through Thanksgiving. 

Next I plan to set up the dining table with a festive Thanksgiving look and add something to the mantel. 
Looks like we'll be staying home for Thanksgiving since my husband will be having cataract eye surgery a few days before Thanksgiving.  

I am joining:


  1. I love your Pier One find, the gobbler is handsome and I love his feathers. A great vignette An perfect through Thanksgiving. Have a wonderful week and Happy Halloween....

  2. A pretty vignette Liz....love the "gobbler"...and good luck to your hubby on his upcoming surgery.

  3. Liz, I always admire your lovely pieces. The turkey is so cleverly made and looks great on your shelf. You have a wonderful eye for placing just the right pieces together. Good luck to Dan with his surgery! ♥

  4. Mr. Turkey is so great Liz. Glad you adopted him and brought him home for Thanksgiving. I love your decor vignette. Beautiful as always. You never disappoint. Have a great start to the new week.

  5. Your new turkey is wonderful, rose wreath and all! Good luck to Dan with his surgery. If all goes well, and it usually does, he will love the outcome!

  6. That turkey looks great there! It’s like he’s watching over everything going on both upstairs and down! He turns around when you’re not looking!😆 Nice find! Just goes to show why I still think in-person shopping (like finding a mate!) is better than shopping online: you have to see it, touch it, get to know it personally to know what it’s really like! It’s a good thing to research it online, but you gotta have that face-to-face for the real lowdown!😉

  7. Love the turkey Liz! What a great find! Love the whole vignette!

  8. What a cute turkey with great feathers. The candles add a nice touch. The crackling is different. I hope all goes well with Dan's surgery.


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!
