A little mushroom man among the turkeys..made of paper clay on a wood spool.

My big paper turkey...

A couple of favorite Fall advertising labels..

A *Ikea frame with a fav old postcard..
A Turkey nodder made by Jerry Arnold, old glass teapot , pretty embossed postcard and Scott Smith Veggie lanterns..
Nicol Sayre dolls and tiny tin plates..

Turkeys and tins on my shelf and a honeycomb turkey on the fridge..
Tin plates and Turkey paper plate with matching napkin..a bunch of vintage Pumpkin labels on tins, old turkey postcards and turkeys.. Finally hung up my new print a John Gould Owl in a vintage gold frame..
Got a bunch of reproduction fruit crate labels on ebay so will change out with the seasons.
More turkeys, Lori Ann Coralis pumpkin baby,old Libby can and old ad framed..
Yes..even a few more turkeys! [ a couple of chicks in the crowd too] and even more are still in the cupborad along with turkey plates! Turkeys are popping up all over the house..

Well, been playing with dolls and baking.. even did some sewing on my new mini machine [ will chat later about that!] besides some serious working... Will have a few items posted after Thanksgiving on Etsy...that's all for now.. time to go watch a couple of movies tonight...

Dolls on My Worktable

I like buying the 'basket case dolls'... mainly as gives me license to do what I want and the cost of the dolls are affordable.
These are cleaned up and eyes reset, I bought mohair wigs on eBay and all the dolls..

Now they are waiting to be dressed.. I have boxes of vintage trims, laces and fabrics to hopefully give them period looking dresses.
Will use this very old fragile cotton dress as a pattern to make a new dress..

This small girl is waiting for a wig I just tied on a swag of mohair for picture.
