We celebrated Thanksgiving by having friends bring their favorite Thanksgiving dish to share. We provided turkey, dressing, gravy, cranberry relish and coffee. Sharing is my idea of a great way to celebrate.
Don wanted folks to be in a festive mood upon arrival, so he created some humor to welcome them. At our walk, he dressed up our concrete rabbit as the Eveready Bunny disguised as a turkey. Note the ultra suede wattles dropping from the gourd beak and the real turkey feathers attached to a gourd tail. Don raids my fabric stash as necessary for his artwork.
Eveready always has his drum, so check out the drum and drum stick as well.
And at the front door, he disguised our concrete toads as turkeys as well -- but are they cows disguised as toads in turkey costumes? When he brought the turkey toads in to show me, I laughed for at least 5 minutes before I had him take them away so I could get back to work.
A friend brought his 6 and a 1/2 year old granddaughter to see the display. She figured that the rabbit was really a chicken, disguised as a rabbit in a turkey costume.

A little laughter is good for the soul.
Wishing you joy and laughter.
