We use these hands to write our thanksgiving prayers each year. Then we stick them into the a pumpkin that has a balsam wood turkey head in the front. Thus, the hands are transformed into turkey feathers. The decorated turkey pumpkin serves as our centerpiece for the Thanksgiving meal.
The hands in the image represent about eight years of thanksgiving prayers.
I love it that you save these things!
Ruth read them as she decorated for Thanksgiving. We laughed about some of them, like “Barbies” and “Pokemon.” She pointed out that mine are always the same.
What a nice Thanksgiving tradition that you’re sharing with your family but the special part for me is you have given this Thanks of giving to your children Doug. -Liz Happy Thanksgiving this special year of 2012.
