November already???

How did it get to be November already?  The weather here in NE Ohio certainly says it's November...wet & cold...very gloomy & nasty.  I'm a November baby...and growing up here I hated having my birthday in November.  The weather was always nasty...and still is.  In Southern CA, my birthdays were much better...but alas...we're not in Southern CA anymore.

The little November Angel above was given to me for one birthday when I was very young....in the early 1950s.  She sat on a shelf above my bed & I remember having to dust her each week.  I have her up for sale in my Etsy shop right now. 

I was surprised to find this guy in a box way up on a shelf here.  I made this turkey napkin holder for my Mom back in the early 1980s.  It's all patchwork & batting with some felt trim.  Cute little turkey...but I no longer have big Thanksgiving dinners, so he's up for sale, too.  Perfect for a Thanksgiving table or buffet.
 
 
I found some patterns Mom had for sewing stuffed turkeys, too...brand new never used patterns. 
 
 
 
I guess she was planning to sew an entire flock of turkeys.  Who knows?  Anyway...if you're looking to make something for your Thanksgiving gathering...these could be perfect.  I'll be adding more to my shop in November...Christmas items & other things that could be perfect for gifts.  I always include a little thank you with each order, too...so please stop by.

  1. What darling vintage items! Can't believe you are parting with your sweet Nov. angel. I get so attached to things. Good for you for being able to let go! I am so tempted to order a turkey pattern. I really am trying to down size also, so I'll think about it.
    hugs,
