Tom, The Inspirational!

Earlier this week,
I was a little bit hard on 
Old Tom Turkey.

I said he wasn't one of
the "most attractive" animals 
on this planet.

Sorry Tom!
Please don't pout.

So to make it up to you ....
I wanted to share 
how your feathered image has
inspired others 
(via Pinterest) 
to make
these great treats and decorations
for the holiday upon us.

Check these out:

Alison, I just had to laugh when I saw the pinecone turkey. We made those in elementary school! LOL! The one made from Oreos was really cute, too! Thanks for sharing! The transferware that you featured is just gorgeous! I loved them all! Have a great day!

I think Tom forgives you now!
Yes, we are having 12 for dinner...I better get off of here and go make my grocery list!

These little guys are adorable. I saw a real baby turkey chick on a blog and believe it or not, they are fuzzy and cute...when they're young! lol!

The plates are gorgeous!

Wonderful post as usual. Very clever. Best Thanksgiving wishes from my blog to yours, Richard and Sissy at My Old Historic House.

You made up for your comment about "Tom" in your prior post. So many good ideas here. Thanks! Happy Thanksgiving - and, no, I'm not hosting this year! This is going to be NICE!

Great turkey ideas!!! Loved the first oreo one. Now I will go check out the platters! I have an old, inexpensive one, but after I get all the meat on it you can't really tell:):) I wish you and your family a happy, blessed and FILLING Thanksgiving! XO, Pinky

Town and Country Gals said...

yes, Tom a bit ticked, he thought he was quite dashing, you know, with the feathers and all! LOL!
Very cute "turkey" treats. Will have to check out those platters, gorgeous!
PS. I just posted a race game I picked up at a yard sale, I think it's right up your alley, check it out if you get a chance.

Tammy @BeatriceBanks said...

I think you have made up with Mr. Tom! I'm still not completely in love myself. But I do like the festiveness he brings for the holiday.
Just a small family dinner for us. But being together is the most important part of the day.
Happy Turkey Day!


Oh so much fun darling Alison. The platters are TDF! Wish I got one for me. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sarah said...

I think Tom will let this one go by. LOL You've given him plenty of press. Cute ideas!
Not hosting on Thanksgiving Day, but will on Wednesday and Friday evening. ;-)
All the best to you, Alison. ~ sarah

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I am hosting and wish I had know about these links to the turkey platters sooner. Oh, well.

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Tom is so ugly that he is kinda adorable most of the time, isn't he?!?

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Linda said...

So fun, Alison! I shared some of my turkeys on my post tonight! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! XO

I just found your Blog and was incredibly thrilled to see my Turkey platter in your list of platters for sale (mine is the second one down from the top). I just wanted to let you know that your blog is awesome and one of my new favorites. Thanks so much for picking my platter out of all the platters out there (honestly, you have no idea how happy it made me, it totally made my day).

God bless you,
