Happy Thanksgiving !

I hope everyone has a blessed holiday! Aren't these little pilgrims cute? They were made by the Gurley Candle Co. You could buy them at the five and dime stores between 1940 and 1970.  They are well known for their Christmas candles, santas, carolers, snowmen, angels, reindeer etc. Mom remembers having carolers when she was growing up. Now she has a collection!


  1. Hapy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you too. And yes, the little pilgrims are so cute. Very nostalgic...

  3. I remember those candles - and the carolers ones too! Did you see my little pilgrim S&P shakers on my roasted veggies post? I've had them for years and now I never see them in stores. I'm so glad I bought them all those years ago. It's so fun to have something special like that!
