The first is Mosaic Monday at Little Red House and then on Thrift Store Thursday with Homebody Holly.
Almost a month ago I went to one of my favorite thrift stores, the American Cancer Society Discovery Store. It was during our "Sister Friday Night" when my sis and I get together and have dinner, do some shopping or something else fun.
I was lucky enough to find three turkeys amongst all the Halloween decorations and today I spent time re-doing my fall decorations to include them. I hope you enjoy the following mosaics.
What I love best about these is the tail shot because I love the way that they included some Thanksgiving harvest items right below their little turkey butts! Isn't that cute? I love the attention to detail.
In this first one, the one at the bottom right is a different metal turkey, the other three shots are ceramic.
In this mosaic, I put that same metal shot in the top left. I love this little metal guy. I didn't take a picture of the back of him because there's a candle holder back there that would be impossible to use unless you bent the turkey forward and I think he would break then. I also included a shot of my cloche with a little pumpkin in it. These are all on my mantle.
And this plate collage was a gift from my daughter April. I had seen this at Bed, Bath and Beyond a long time ago and even took a picture of it with my cell phone hoping to find similar plates and put them in this same shape and design.
Then my daughter surprised me with these. This is how they are described on the Bed, Bath and Beyond website:
Plate Collage Wall Plaque This eclectic artwork featuring the rich look of embossed ceramic is sure to transform the aesthetic of any room. The array of colors ranging from golden amber to robin's egg blue will bring a feeling of warmth to its surroundings. Its glossy finish with exciting textures and designs makes this artful collection of plates complete. Equipped to hang either vertically or horizontally. Constructed of metal. Measures 25" x 46".
For now they are hanging over my stove in the kitchen, but that's not going to be their final home. I really want to put them behind the TV in the living room but just haven't had time to get my drill out and put up a sturdy hanger. Maybe after the holidays, but for now they add a lot of color to that white wall behind the stove.
Hope you enjoyed those and I want to be helpful to all the wonderful cooks and new cooks out there that will be preparing Thanksgiving Dinner. I want to share with you my seventeen steps to making a Turkey Dinner.
