Turkey time at CottageLodge

It’s time for my mighty rafter of turkeys to see the light of day for 4 whole weeks. Poor things have to live in boxes downstairs for the other 48 weeks of the year. So here is another one of my collections; kind of like visiting a petting zoo, except different 🙂

I took the pics with both my point and shoot and iPad – some are more clear than others. Someday I hope to get a fancy pants camera, but for now, what I gots is all I have!

We just finished installing oak floors in the living room, and also had the existing oak floors in the hallway and dining room refinished. I’ve painted (inside and out) so much the last few weeks my arm is about ready to fall off, now the turkeys have a nice shiny fresh place to roost. OK, here is some turkey overload for you…..

 

This decoy really freaked my cats out the first year he was on the porch.

A very old cast iron turkey bank

 

Pumpkin turkey or purkey. Tumpkin?

 

A flock of littles.

 

These are cool – they are called nodders, and when you give them a little push,they rock back and forth.

 

A little Pilgrim Mom with her 2 little kids (so the kids are Amish, I’m stretching it a little)

 

End o’ the bookshelf

 

This old turkey is made in Germany and is a candy container.

 

 

Ya, I am a board off center. I did indeed purchase this wonderful, large picture that I have to find someplace to store for 11 of 12 months a year, but hey, how many people do you know with a Pilgrim picture? Besides, it was 2 bucks; who could pass that up.

Baby turkeys. My Mudder is an arteest, and she painted this special for me for Christmas a few years ago.

 

A nice, washed out pic of the bookcase.

 

 

My big splurge after re-doing the entryway, a beautificus stag head, and he is watching over the prettiest turkey I own. A very pretty pair, me thinks.

How’d that pheasant get in here?

 

Old chicken feeders Bruce brought back from his Grandparents ranch in Nebraska.

These are the Pilgrim Grandparents.

 

Guess the crow chased the turkey out of this pic.

I only have a few white turkeys.

 

A turkey chocolate mold.

My Mom’s cousin was also an artist. She painted the picture and also the little kids

 

We’ll, there ya have it…..turkey time at CottageLodge! If you think this is overkill, just wait til you see Christmas around here…….
