Poor Tom Turkey... a foyer vignette

11.18.2010

I thought I would share the vignette on my antique sideboard in my foyer as it looks now since it will be changing soon for Christmas.


I purchased this funky looking turkey at fifty percent off back in early October and almost forgot I had him. 


I am using my pitcher from Cracker Barrel stuffed with hydrangeas and some fall branches.
Amazing what you can find at Cracker Barrel.


The pitcher is elevated on top of this vintage leather book.


I have had this plate for many years and have it placed by the lamp on the other side of the sideboard.


Poor turkey, you better run and hide!


I hung my vintage roe deer antlers on each side of the mirror.

I don't think I have told you lately how much I appreciate each and every comment and thanks so much for the great turnout to my party each week!

Y'all come back now,

KIM
