Thanksgiving goodness!

Yay! I'm so thrilled with being able to not only offer a fun collection of Hanukkah goodies, but also a nice collection of Thanksgiving goodies too!

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that really means a lot, but very often gets ignored in the decoration department. A big part of that is because good Thanksgiving goodies are hard to come by. For those of us who like to celebrate with a visual feast for the eyes as well as a yummy feast for the table...good decorations are a must! I've got a little collection of vintage Thanksgiving goodies that I'll show you a bit later. They inspired me to create this group to share with you. They are available in my Etsy shop now! :)

Pilgrim girls and boys dressed in classic black and white.

And we must not forget the important role our native american friends played in the ritual of the Thanksgiving feast!

I love the sweet little gal in the middle...a young girl excited about the prospects of a giant celebration!

Fringe and beads embellish this handsome duo.

And I have two little fun facts about myself and Thanksgiving. The first, is that I'm part native american! My great great grandmother was a full blooded Indian from the Delaware tribe! And the second fun fact...I was born on Thanksgiving Day! Which also means that my birthday is coming up soon! :)

I love them all but have missed getting most of them. What is the white stuff on the little pilgrim boy's costume? Is that glue that hasn't dried?

Crystal, I have loved all of your spun cotton people but I think these pilgrims and Native Americans are my favorite. They are just fantastic.

You are filling that crafting void...first Hanukkah and now Thanksgiving. Loving those turkeys! I did a show this weekend and a woman bought what I had that was blue for Hanukkah. I told her about your shop and new creations...she said she would check you out!

Crystal, these are just great. I am so looking forward to the end of my tuition-paying era so I can devote an equal amount of money to buying up your wonderful things. I love the sweet faces on the Native American girls. (Especially that one with the muff!) And happy upcoming birthday to you!
