Elijah's Attic Giveaway ENDED

We are on Day 1 of our 12 days of giveaways.  We are starting our giveaway with a wonderful etsy shop.  Elijah's Attic is owned by Chris and Jennifer Duncan of Lake Placid, FL. This is what they want you to know about them:

"We are a husband and wife team who have a passion for creating and decorating with unusual items. We love to repurpose and recycle every day items into something unusual and interesting. We love to shop junk yards and thrift stores to find interesting and vintage articles. I guess you can say we needed to turn this passion into a business because we ran out of room to display all the items we created. So we bring you Elijah's Attic to share our passion with others. Elijah is our beautiful son."

Chris and Jennifer are giving away a $25 gift card to their etsy shop.  We've made entering super simple!

First, visit Elijah's Attic and leave a comment telling us your favorite item in their shop.
Next, like Elijah's Attic on facebook and leave a comment telling us you do.
Finally, like Our Seven Dwarfs on facebook and leave a comment telling us you do.

That's a total of three comments you can leave!  You have until November 30th to enter. We will pick the winning comment using random.org.  The winner will be announced on December 1st.  We wish you all the best of luck and once again want to thank Elijah's Attic for giving our readers an opportunity to own some of your beautiful, repurposed, artwork!

Breaking Out the Thanksgiving Turkey

This is a repost from last year.  I was so excited to get my Thanksgiving decorations unpacked.  This gal is one of the main reasons why.  She is so stinking cute! What do you think?

I admit it.  I LOVE other peoples' ideas.  What's more perfect than seeing what someone else made and adapting it to fit your needs?  I am so lucky to have Jill and Lesli, my blog following gals, to send me great ideas.  From time to time, I do a little craft seeking too, but I usually let them do all the research!

I want to share some of the Thanksgiving crafts I've been working on.  Most of these are inspired by others and adapted by me.  I'll definitely let you learn from my mistakes by making suggestions.  Since these are not my originals, I don't plan on including tutorials; however, if you have any questions, I will be happy to help.

Here is my final project:

I did a few things differently. First, my little gal is a lot bigger I think.  I did look at her pattern, but freehanded the turkey body and feet on mdf.  So, it turned out big, but so cute!  I also blushed her cheeks with a red stamp pad. I just used a stencil brush to dab into the ink and then put it above her beak.  I painted a white stripe on the top of her beak for a little more dimension.  I also added little white dimples and white dots in the eyes, with my white paint.  I love how this turned out!
