A Rafter of Turkeys

Now that Halloween is over it is time for my turkeys to make an appearance.  As you can see, I have a lot of turkeys in my collection.  These are only just a few of them.  The easiest way for me to find a home for them is to add them to my fall decor.   At the end of the season, when everything goes on sale, I’m on the lookout for a new little gobbler to add to the rafter.

I made this little guy about 40 years ago when I lived on Staten Island in New York. I lived around the corner from a ceramic studio. I was able to spend a little time away from my husband and children. I was able to do something that I found relaxing and satisfying.

As much as we love our families, we still need some alone time once in a while. No matter what you do or where you go, alone time brings about a better you which will only make you a better mother and wife.
