Thanksgiving Hutch with Red Turkey Transferware & Giveaway Ends Tomorrow!

  You don't see much in the way of red at Thanksgiving but I wanted my hutch to have a little bit of a Fall feeling even though I'm not hosting Thanksgiving this year.  I swapped out a few pieces of my usual display for some pieces of red, Thanksgiving themed ones.  This is the first year, definitely since being a Mom, that I can remember not putting any Halloween decor out and very little decor for Fall.   This is it about it.   With the whole Etsy filming I just did not find the time to do much Fall decorating.

The platter is a huge, 20 or 21" whopper big enough for a 20-24 lb turkey,  by Wood and Sons dating to the 1930's.  I displayed it last year on another table HERE, where I also told about the history of the turkey themed English wares.


It's surrounded by some bundles of wheat, my favorite little facorns, some pinecones and this trio of chipmunks.

So that's about all I have for my Fall decor! 
What are your plans for Thanksgiving this year?  We are going to one of my brothers homes and I am taking my corn and onion casserole that I shared here last year, a new dessert that I have yet to ever make but I have it planned out in my mind...so if it turns out good I will share, and hmmm...not sure what else I'm going to take just yet.

One quick reminder...tonight is the last night to enter the giveaway for this circa 1830's blue transferware plate. 

 Just leave a comment, which I would very much appreciate,  on the Etsy blog post and you're automatically entered to win.  Thank you to everyone who watched the video and who has left a comment on the post.
