Finally, the hard to find, white turkey

excessfroufrouNovember 17, 2010

While on my lunch break yesterday, I was shopping at my favorite antique/junk mall and I spotted this guy. He is bigger than he looks in the pic, the dealer had him listed as a cookie jar (I don't know about that). Anyhoo he was only $5.00 woo hoo! He is perfect for my kitchen table.

He is one beautiful bird! I can't believe you got him for $5.00. Wonderful. I love the texture on him and on the bottom part that is made to look like a basket. Great find Frou, bet you were doing the happy dance! Luvs

WOW - that was quite a find - I really like it - I haven't been searching hard but always on the look out for turkeys and pheasants. Hope I can stumble on a find like that someday .....

What an incredible buy on that turkey. Guess he was just waiting for you to come find him! I'm so happy you did.

hugs, Karen

It was meant to be, frou! And a steal for $$$!
The colorful one I just got was not cookie jar size either but it will hold some candy. This guy looks pretty sitting on your ruffled plate & table. TFS! Jeanne S.

Frou, so happy you found your white turkey at such a great price. He looks grand sitting there on top of the counter.

This is a very original and nice looking bird!
But the other thing which I saw is your exquisite table! Did you make it yourself? Did you buy it as it is? It's really, really lovely!

I'm so glad you finally found your white turkey, Frou! He's looking good on your table there. He looks like a covered caserole instead of a cookie jar, though. What was that guy thinking? (LOL)
