Remember this post from a week or so ago?
I was on a mission to find the
perfect "thing" for a vignette
I had in my head for
the top of the china hutch
in the kitchen eating area.
Welllll....luck was on my side
when I was shopping at
Hobby Lobby this past weekend.
They were having one of their
66% off sales.
And I found "IT"!
This sweet vintage looking
plaque with chicken wire
only set me back
a little over $5.00!
It is the perfect piece!
It is exactly what I had imagined there.
Here is a view of the top of
The right side
And the left side.
The printers drawer is one of my favorite Goodwill finds from last summer!
It was, of course, 50% off that day
so I got it for $7.99.
More than I have ever paid for anything,
other than furniture,
at a thrift store but,
I had to have it, right?
The aluminum stock pot
was actually in the "to be donated" pile
but has found a new life without ever leaving our
I would like to find an enameled stock pot at some point
but for now, the shiny one is okay.
Another Goodwill find is
the sweet, off white, pitcher
with the handpainted flowers.
It used to sit on top of the fridge
but I like that I can see it better in
its new home.
Since I was going with a homey theme
I changed up the
decor in the main part of the hutch too.
You may have seen the salad plates
when I used them on this tablescape.
I started with some silver plate and chrome chargers in the back,
then my Johnson Bros. white dishes
and the farm fresh plates
layered over some bandanas that were a suggestion from Mr. B.
The next shelf holds just a
of my glassware collection.
And finally Mr. Rooster
alone on the bottom shelf.
I am so pleased with how
the cabinet looks.
It feels so warm and cozy
which is the perfect way to feel
this time of year.
Of course, Valentine's Day is not
to far away
so, I will be changing this all out again before then!
Oh poor Mr. B!
He just can't understand why I can't just
leave things be.
Where's the fun in that???
