Mid-Century Turkeys

Each year about this time I drag these turkey trays out of the storeroom and display them in my home.   The enamel platters are very large and colorful.   I love the fruit and veggie borders.   They were purchased at separate times over the years at garage sales and flea markets and I don’t think I spent over a couple of bucks on each one.

This brown gobbler is on a small wall in the kitchen.

The blue turkey sits above the  kitchen cabinets, but I couldn’t get a good shot up there so I moved him to the wall to have his picture taken.  Up against the wall you redneck turkey.  { Just couldn’t resist.}

This yellow beauty is placed on the sideboard in my dining room.  Sorry about the glare.

I actually have several more turkey platters but in my effort to simplify I left them in the storeroom.    Maybe next year they will make an appearance.

Interesting fact:  Ben Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national symbol rather than the eagle.

That’s it for me today.   Thank you for stopping by.
