The Tone of the Turkey
My husband makes fun of me- I think he rolls his eyes behind my back- because I enjoy a good ceramic fowl. He doesn't see the value in the seasonal decoration. He is the CFO of the family and he (for some odd reason) thinks these types of purchases are a waste of money. Odd. This beautiful turkey sits on the living room sideboard or the dinning room table from October to Thanksgiving. I think this turkey is big and beautiful with it's crackle glaze, and nothing sets the autumn tone like a big fat turkey in the room. Williams-Sonoma no longer sells these beauties, which makes me even more grateful that I made this purchase last year. I was with my mother when I made the purchase; my father and my husband try to not let my mother and me go unsupervised during a shopping trip, because we come back with $200-made-in-Italy-exclusively-for-Williams-Sonoma-ceramic-turkey type purchases.
Let the turkey remind us that it's time to start giving thanks for all the blessings in our life.
