Turkeys, Turkeys and More Turkeys - Thanksgiving Hutch Tour

Happy , happy Friday, punkins! Are you ready for an awesome weekend? I am gearing up for Thanksgiving which is just is just 6 short days away! Please come on in and join me in the kitchen. Can I interest you in some sweet tea or maybe a little apple cider?   
 Well today I wanted to show you my crammed full country hutch. I tell you- it is packed to the brim with country clutter, turkeys and all kinds of stitching and boy, do I love it.!!

I started off with some black and white buffalo checked fabric that I used as shelf runners. This fabric was from Walmart, and I just  simply cut it into strips. I then layered in the plates which  were from the Dollar Tree  as well as the Goodwill.

 On the  top shelf is the Primitive Hare's freebie "Give Thanks". I finished it a few years ago. 

Next to it is the most darling large acorn, that my sweet friend Shelly gifted me along with the super cute "Welcome Autumn" leaf plaque.  This year Walmart had some brown and autumnal colored bottle brush trees. I thought they would look cute sprinkled among my Thanksgiving decor.  

 I placed "Happy Thanksgiving " by Bent Creek in a little creamer. Lisa, a sweet stitchy friend, let me borrow it a few years ago. 

That little turkey always makes me smile.  

Now lets hop down to the 2nd shelf.

 In my vintage juicer, I changed out the bowl and stuffed it with "Give Thanks" a Lizzie Kate freebie and a little pumpkin.

  Next to it is my Priscilla Ewe , that I finished onto a Dollar General wooden pumpkin.

 Pilgrims and turkeys are scattered on the 2nd shelf. 

In the corner is  a pumpkin and gourd stitch nestled in a turkey ; it was a freebie. Do you  recognize it? For the life of me I can not remember who was the designer and I would love to give them credit for this sweet stitch. 
 Oh and what about the little pumpkin sampler. Is that a Heart in Hand?  My memory is failing. Lol.  

Now let's turkey strut on down to the the bottom shelf.

 In the corner is a little turkey nestled in a fabulous basket gifted to me by Shelly. I can not wait to use it come spring time. Below it is my Thanksgiving stitch finished into a pillow. In the turkey planter is Blessed which I shared last year. 

My two November saltbox houses  are nestled in the mix. 

 Gobble Gobble is one of my freebies that I shared earlier this month. It is resting on the vintage scale.  

That's my 2021 Thanksgiving hutch in a nutshell. If you would like to see last year's hutch click here
