Autumn Blues Hutch Tour

Good morning, punkins.  Oh boy, here we go again! It's that time -time for another episode of  Pinker n' Punkin's Country Clutter.  

Grab you a cup of tea and don't be shy! A slice of pineapple banana nut bread. It is yummy for your tummy!  

 Today I am sharing my hutch. Now I have told you this before, but don't worry . Under no circumstances were Dust Bunnies disturbed in the taking of these photos;  though I do believe they need to scoot!   


This year I decided to go with a different theme for my Autumn Hutch - blues, oranges and a bit of farm decor. 

I  left the black and white buffalo print shelf runners on the shelves. I layered blue enamelware plates, white thrifted plates, and some blue / white transferware plates for a backdrop. And then I began to pile in the country clutter.

In the very corner hanging from a tack is a small chicken stitch that hangs year round on my hutch . I often am asked about who is the designer which I had forgotten.  Well I found it a few weeks ago. It was  freebie that I found on Pinterest. I  think  I  now have it pinned  on my Pinterest page under Chicken Cross stitch if you are interested.  If you know who the designer is , please leave me a message. I would love to know. 


 If you have visited before , you may notice that I use a lot of the same old things, but change them around. And you know I like it full, busy and cluuuuutered. 

So lets start at the top shelf. In one corner I placed a blue spongeware bowl on top of some plates and filled it with old  pumpkins. Next to it is Rosie's Pumpkins a freebie that I shared last year.  Click any of the colored print and you will be taken to the post and freebie. 

In the center is a pumpkin pitcher that I have had for about 20years.  "Fall" is a freebie from  Carrie  Powell of Crafting Paws. It can be found on her blog in the October 21,2019 post .I finished it on a candle holder and turned it on its side. 

 I pulled out an old tureen to put in the other corner.  

I bought the big pumpkin chalkboard at Dollar General this year for $5. I didn't have anywhere else to hang it so on the hutch it went. 


 Hoping on down to the 2nd shelf. Lots more clutter to see.  

I have 2 new additions to my fall decor. The Farm Fresh Pumpkin easel sign is  a new addition from the Dollar General  and the Blessed barn is from the Family Dollar. 

 On the easel frame is my Autumn Stamp freebie . I change out the stitches on the easel each season. The easel is from the Dollar General. 

 In the enamelware bowl is a Dollar Tree pumpkin and "Just a Little Autumn is a San Man Originals  freebie. 

 In the opposite corner  is my old juicer. I change out the bowls each season. 


This time I am using a blue enamelware bowl filled with pumpkins and a rooster. 

Next to it is Little Bits Pumpkin Haul which a shared last year. 

Down to the 3rd shelf. 

Every year I put my pie dish that mom gifted me on the bottom shelf. It is an old Better Homes and Garden piece from Walmart.

 Next to it is a thrifted rooster pitcher, some Dollar Tree pics and a pumpkin / truck light. 

This little Holstein is my newest addition to the hutch . I bought her the other day for only a dime. She  makes me smile. 

 In my baking apple dishes is a vintage salt shaker.   

My little blue truck punch needle piece called "Punkin Farm"  was a piece that I created and finished in 2020. 

On top of the old scale is a   Little Quaker Pumpkin which is a freebie on the Stitchy Fish Designs blog in the September 12, 2016 post. Do you know who is the designer of the little pumpkins and gourds? This sweet designs name and designer eludes me. 

On the other wall beside my hutch is some of my tin collection. Would you be interested in seeing some more of my tin collection  sometime?  


Do you see the Pumpkins sign in the window?

I painted it years ago on a scrap piece of wood. One side says pumpkins. 

The other side says Homespuns so I can have it sitting out year round. It was a no cost craft. 


 Well that is my 2022 Autumn Hutch in a nutshell pumpkin shell.  

I thought it would be fun to look at previous years' hutches as well. If you would like to see them closer, just click on the links, and you will be taken back to the post which has  information on any of the stitches. 

Fall Hutch 2021

 Fall 2020 Hutch  Tour - I decorated the hutch twice in 2020. Lol

Goodness, that was a lot to take in wasn't it? Can you believe that I have squeezed one more thing on the hutch since these photos were taken?  Lol Well when there is a will , there is a way. I will be clearing off the hutch and putting up Halloween this week. I am looking forward to that. Thank you so much for dropping by today and ... 

 As always...

Happy  Stitching and Quilting, ya'll


There is harmony in autumn and luster in its sky. 

Hugs and Stitches!!!!🤗🧵❤

Dedicated to my dear baby sister, Amy.I miss and love you, Amo.
