Gobbledy Good

Get a load of this pillow my mother in law made!  Dare i say this is one cute turkey...and i don't think turkeys are ever cute.  It's that red whatchamacallit (waddle?) and their wrinkly naked head...blech.   You know, i think wearing a pilgrim hat may help "up" the cute factor.


This placemat-turned-pillow and his twin are the only "thanksgiving" specific decor i have, so they are a welcome addition.  I love how she tried to keep the look of the feathers by bunching it instead of making it a plain circle or square.  And the different fabrics per tier-what a great way to use your scraps.


Poor guys, it's already time to put them away.  You could probably find something similar on clearance now if you wanted to add these cute turkeys to your home next year.  And speaking of turkey, i hope your Thanksgivings were full of good food and good times.

Your placement turned pillow is so cute. I love to find things and use them in unexpected ways, it kinda freaks some people out, but thats part of the fun. Thanks for stopping by "In His Grip".

Hey thanks so much for popping over from Met Monday! Glad you like my new white kitchen. Take a look at the slipcovers I just posted - I'm always looking for cheap or free furniture to slipcover (though these were not that). I love your blog how FUN you are! The BEST things in life are free - though you already know that! I'm now following you and hope you'll come back and visit me often and follow me too ;)

I'm a big fan of waiting until after the holiday to get stuff on sale to use the NEXT year! Although in this case I think I've already waited to long past thanksgiving to find something like this. NEXT year! Thanks for linking up to Topsy Turvy Tuesdays!
