transitioning between holidays

"Early Christmas gift advice: Friends don't give friends fruitcakes."
(Rick Warren, on Twitter)
I chuckled when I read this...
because only yesterday I purchased -  for a pittance - the fruitcake tin above.
I thought it Thanksgiving decor-worthy.
 This sheath of grain also caught my eye
and awaits placement while sitting on our kitchen table.
After selling the chalkboard I showed in my previous post so quickly, I took THIS one off our wall and placed it in front of the fireplace. This was my FIRST attempt at drawing a turkey.  I'm sure there will be others as I transition from one holiday to the next.

    1. Thanks, Debbie. I goggled "drawing a turkey" and then searched the images for the one that looked the simplest to draw. It was a beginning :) I'd like to try a couple more....

    2. The red and white for Thanksgiving is an usual coloring but I like it. I don't have witches and ghosts much for Halloween but lots of autumn stuff. Yesterday I put away one pumpking with a black crow on it, and then I set out pilgrims and turkeys among the autumn leaves and pumpkins. EASY transiton for me!

  3. My aunt used to make fruit cake which we all loved. She make a dark and a lighter variety that once baked needed some time to...marinate for lack of a better word (their was some alcohol in it). I miss those days. Thanks for the memories.
