Yard Sale Deer is the Star of my Thanksgiving Buffet

About a month ago,   H and I stopped at a yard know I can't pass by one without stopping....right?

H fell in love with him and thought he should come home with us.    I wasn't as eager as he was to bring him home because of his size.....and the fact that my Fall storage area is packed!      It was late in the day and the lady having the yard sale had him marked $15 and told H he could have him for $7.50.      So,  we loaded him up in the car and brought him home with us.

I absolutely love him and am so glad that H convinced me that we could make room for him somewhere....somehow     

Isn't he gorgeous?

    I put a garland of fruit and white roses around his neck to dress him up for Thanksgiving

He is the star of my Thanksgiving buffet......

On his left is a Pilgrim couple......

And on his right......

is an Indian couple.

I am working on the centerpiece for the Thanksgiving tablescape and you might have caught just a sneak peek of in in some of the photo's.      I'll be back to share the table with you when it's done.

I always enjoy your visits so much,    please come back again soon!


  1. He's a biggie, but he looks pretty comfortable there. Great find!!

  2. Good morning Penny, Well, Mr H and the deer are keepers. Mr H really has great taste. The deer would be like the cow, the owls, chandelier to me.................Never Get Rid of Them. They are so much fun. I love animals. The two couples are great as they really say the theme of Thanksgiving- Give Thanks for All We Have. Oh, I do love these decorations. I sure am anxious to see what you do with the deer for Christmas. Oh, what to your grapevine buggy that was in the yard? Will we see it for Christmas?
    Have a super day!

  3. He looks magnificent!! Where do you get your energy? I'm so happy now I didn't toss my large gilded reindeer. Beautiful display. Kay

  4. Well it's big, but so nice. I could see him hanging around at Christmas too. I love the Pilgrims and Indians. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
