Last year, while thumbing through the Wisteria catalog I came across a decoration that I thought would be perfect for Thanksgiving:
Isn’t it cute?
Here, straight from the Wisteria website is the description:
“Having this quirky little wooden turkey figurine around your house during Thanksgiving will be sure to spark conversation in between bites of your delicious Thanksgiving meal. Handpainted, so color may vary.
- Festive décor
- Looks great anywhere in your home”
Here are a couple more pictures:
I thought this “quirky little wooden turkey” would be just what my first home-cooked Thanksgiving needed!
But…..I went to order it and it was not to be found. I assume it was sold out. Bummer.
Cut to 2010.
Again, Wisteria is selling the turkey.
I had to have it.
Perfect for my fireplace mantel.
So I ordered it.
Took a while, but finally, on Monday, it arrived.
And OH MY FREAKING HECK check out the size of the box it came in!
This turkey is huge. No WAY is it going on my mantel. No way is this the “quirky little wooden turkey” I was expecting.
Moral of the story: Next time you get an idea about where you want to put something you plan to buy for your home…
be sure to check the dimensions first!
Now, the furniture in those website pictures must be giant sized..isn’t it a titch deceiving?
Regardless, it’s cute and I’m keeping it.
On the floor.
