Because of all the things that I am thankful for, I wanted to emphasize the often-neglected Thanksgiving holiday. What better way than to collect turkeys? My children at ages 6 and 8 started the collection with a 2 dimensional wooden cutout of the proud bird purchased on a Heart of Ohio Tour. The collection has grown to include tea sets, candles, talking turkeys, platters, stuffed turkeys, and of course—turkeys with attitude!
