Thanksgiving Hutch

I love to decorate the little hutch in the garden room for the seasons and holidays. 
Bill made this piece for me during the 80s. 
It was an orange-y pine until he let me paint it a few years ago. 
It got a little tweaking this week. 
I started off with a wild turkey print from the Audubon book that I found last summer. 

The saucer was a thrifted find last January. 
It was nestled in a stack of plates that were all taped together. 
The whole stack was only 99 cents. 
Seeing the turkey in the middle of the transferware pattern was fun.

The vintage postcard was an eBay find last year.

The little Native American dolls were souvenirs from our sight seeing trips to Wisconsin during my summers there as a child. I was inspired to dig them out after reading this post by Amber over at Junkaholics Unanimous. 
Mine had been forgotten in a box filled with all my old dolls. They're a sweet reminder of fun Wisconsin summers with my grandparents.

The leaves have gently started to change here but not on our oak trees.

The rest of the room got a few throws and pillows.

In 17 days it will be time to redecorate for Christmas!

Have a great week.

  1. Love your arrangement and what a deal with the turkey plate!

  2. Love all your touches. And your DH is very talented -- that's a great piece!

  3. I love your collection of green pottery at the top of the hutch as they contrast wonderfully against the white of the hutch.
