Four days before Thanksgiving I discovered a garage sale find from the summer. I could have been looking at this stately bird all of November. I still have the sticker on the plate… $5.00.
This came in a box with a certificate of authenticity (NOW you are impressed, I know!) It says Sixth issue in the Edward Marshall Boehm Gamebirds of North American Plate Collection. Never has a turkey looked so Purdy.
Doing a little plate flipping I see I have another Game Bird Plate by Boehm. Below is the California Quail in the series. These plates are made in England and are fine Bone China. The quail plate came from an antique store in Nags Head, N.C. I paid $20 for this one, but just love their little head feathers. They do look regal to me.
I keep this plate out in my husband’s Man Cave ~~~~ family room.
In closing this post today I want to show a picture I have posted before. I’m sure many of you haven’t seen it.
This was taken just a couple of days after we moved into our new home. My daughter went into her bathroom and this is what she found looking back at her! We didn’t have blinds up at the time. We got a huge laugh over our Peepin’ Tom after Jamie got past the scare! LOL!
Do you have wild turkeys in your area?
Have fun preparing for the big Turkey Day!
