St. Patrick's Day is the holiday that has the fewest decorations in our home. That is mostly because when Easter occurs in March I skip SPD and only decorate with bunnies and chicks for the month. I just don't see much point in buying a bunch of stuff that doesn't get used each year.
Thanksgiving, unfortunately, is also a small decorating holiday for us. It's not because I don't like it and it's not because I don't decorate each year, because I do. The sad truth is that I do not ever feel like buying turkey decorations in July and August and if you don't do it then, you are pretty much out of luck. Turkeys get replaced by snowmen and Santas in September. Pitiful.
I did luck out and get a few new decorations for 2015. Maybe by 2030 Thanksgiving will be awesome around here.
Michael, of all people, asked why we didn't have a Snoopy flag for Thanksgiving. My mom and I were shopping in early October when I found this 50% off, so I was happy to fulfill his request.
I got this handsome guy in October too.
This guy is over a decade old and is still looking good.
On the mirror behind the front door. I have the same clings on the mirrors in the bathroom. See Elliott photobombing?
See the big turkey towards the bottom?
I bought him on Monday. He was the last Thanksgiving anything at Hobby Lobby and Elliott just loved him. Honestly, I was ready to walk away because I don't like the sign he's holding, but Elliott was so sad that we weren't bringing him home.
Obviously we got him and decided I had it in me to do some sign modification.
I wanted to display all of the turkey dishes I bought last year. We have yet to eat dinner with them this year, but mostly because I just keep forgetting.
I hate these stuffed turkeys and yet I put them out year after year.
I colored these a few years back.
The kitchen has lots of turkey artwork.
These are the fake flowers I bought at Hobby Lobby. I am incredibly proud of this little bouquet. Way more proud than I should be.
That's all I've got! The next post will be wedding, wedding, wedding!
