Little One "B," who's 5 this year made this gumdrop Turkey out of a green apple.

Update: Tho when I took the pic I was under the impression "B" made this, today I found out it was "J" who is almost 8. Sorry for the mix-up kids!

Go eat Turkey with the family if they allow you, count your blessings, n feel gratitude for all the gifts life gives you.

I'm so glad I got this holiday Off- I'll so enjoy it. Then it's back to the grind. No crazy Black Friday shopping for me...

Let us know what "B" thinks of the altered pictures. Great turkey from beginning to end.

Happy Restful Thanksgiving to you!

Nothing is safe from alteration! :) Is the bottom picture a view from a different angle? Or did the color changes merely appear to change the perspective?

Cloudia, Hope your holiday is wonderful. Aloha!

Grabn Annie, see the update. Full of Turkey now- Thanks

Chris E, I used a Mirror effect ontop of the color n form effects. Have a good Thanks Day-

I'm so glad you had the day off too. I hope you enjoyed it. Here in the UK it was just another day. Shame I really would have liked some turkey!

Great turkey!

Fascinating what you did with that turkey! I'm sure your 8 year old loved seeing it.
I don't know if you read recent comments on your older posts But I left one about the Wampanoag Tribe of which I descend through Chief Aspinet who was my 8th great grandfather.
It's interesting that when I first visited your blog a few days ago and saw the pictures you posted of beach and woods I felt it was on the east coast. Maybe something in my DNA?
I would appreciate any more info or photos you can share of the area and beach water shots.

LLcoolJ, I wonder if you get a Turkey holiday there in the UK or at least get some at Christmas time? Was good to have if off- First time in 6 years. I had fun. thanks

Mountain Mama, Welcome to ESR- I'll have to track down those other comments- haven't had any blog time the past few days. My village was a summer fishing campground for Wampanoags centuries ago. There's a Wigwam down the street. Sorry I remain anon here for safety reasons or I'd be more specific. You have a native heritage to be proud of!

goodnite so sleeeepy.


and so cool how Mountain Mama found you.

JanF, Of course the paper n toothpicks are the only non-edible parts. Well made- (but my gumdrops would've been in horizontal matching colors prob-). Yep, that turkey eating knocks you to nap-time fast! Still eating leftovers brought home. I hopped over there to MM's blog from Gran Annie's post about her spam prob.

I always love "turkeys" that kids make. Love this one.

I hope you had a wonderful day on Thursday - I got back home late last night after a looong day of travel.

At 2:47 AM, Blogger Snaggle Tooth said...

Lynn, I just couldn't resist getting a pic on here of that one- I bet you had a good time out on the plantation. Glad you're back home ok n going back to work isin't too taxing after so much driving. I did have a good Thursday, Thanks

Thought that was one of those fancy new GMO fed Turkeys for a moment!


Eat that GMO stuff and you might grow feathers!

Well a little late but, Hope that you had a yemmy turkey day. Me & Lucy had my humans Grandson & his family over. It was his 1st hol-a-day as he just found him after 12 years his sister & mom came over too. Thay stuffed thereself. Hope you had a good day with your family. It was nice to hear you had the day off...

Maybe next year you'll make a version of your own? :)

I remember us kids used to raid mom's stash of baking gumdrops. And her chocolate chips. Most kids do, I expect. :)

yeah, triptophan? Is that the drug in turkey that makes us so sleepy?

Hope you're staying warm and cozy, and your vaca last week was restful??


At 6:28 PM, Blogger Jannie Funster said...

Okay and who's Buddy D. Toxie?? Sounds like a total card! Some one you know IRL, me thinks.


At 3:07 AM, Blogger Snaggle Tooth said...

Note: couldn't get connected yesterday- Rats! Don't know why...

Neo, I wonder what happens when you wash feathers with shampoo...

Buddy! Good to stuff yourself with Turkey n company at least once a year- Glad Pal found his folks. Sounds like fun over there-

JanF, Been ages since I had any craft time, n have piles besides turkeys going on around here. Trying to get the critters to stop breaking my Outdoor Xmas lites- Two strings broken already! Think it's the opossum. I was going to try to spell the "triptophan" thing but still can't spell it! or say it. I did sleep a bit at the end of my week. Really got run down. Need another week! Yep a local for many years. Buddy n Lucy are dashhounds who were born on the 4th of July awhile back. Didn't you know animals can type?

At 8:52 PM, Blogger Jannie Funster said...

Our Sweetie is a dashhound, or "dacshund" perhaps in the olde country.

do you buy lottery tickets? every week, right?

And oh my goodness -- I just realized my mix-up in...

Buddy D.Toxie


Buddy T.Doxie.


I thought it was one of your friends who was kicking heroin, or something. :) :) :)

Doxie's -- go tit!!


I mean...


oh goodness.

I need to stop writing now, laughing so hard. Plus, I need to open the cranberry.


At 12:27 AM, Blogger Snaggle Tooth said...

JanF, lol! woops- I knew Sweetie was a doxie. Pal used to have another black n tan female doxie, with the same name as yours! Typing dogs can't spell right either! They don't even try-

At 2:38 PM, Blogger Jannie Funster said...

:) But poker playing dogs seem to be in their best element. :)


At 4:50 AM, Blogger Snaggle Tooth said...

JanF, especially in silly paintings worth millions. I seem to recall Blue bunnies are spell challenged also...
