For those of us in the United States, it is Thanksgiving today.
A day when family and friends get together an say "Thanks" for all the blessings of the year. It is a common practice to eat turkey on this day. So if you are feeling a little stuffed like this little turkey, I think you ate too much. Have a lovely day!
The item in the back of the picture, in case you are curious, is a salesman tatting sampler c. 1900. A salesman would go to all the local tatters in the area and get samples of their work. Once collected, they (the lace samples) would be attached to fabric and the prices written on it for easy reference. Then the salesman would go from mercantile to mercantile selling his/her wares. After collecting the orders, he would go back to the lacers and tell them what to make. Once items were made the lace pieces would be collected for distribution. There are not too many of these around. The person who had this did not know what it was and gave it to me with the battenburg piano top runner pattern for free. Quite the free bonus. We had it framed; it is quiet lovely.
