I've Been Playing Again

Oh, Dear Ones, I'm so ashamed! You are all showing your Christmas decorating and I don't have any to show! Can you believe it? We're waiting for flooring to come in - it was supposed to be put down before Thanksgiving and all was going to be well. Guess what? It's not all well - it was delayed in coming and when the marble came in they brought it out to install it, I was so happy, the box was opened - wrong color!! I just cried!! I can't put up my Christmas tree until the marble is laid down on my entry floor! I'm stomping my little tiny feet as I type each word! One two three four! I will survive, but I'm not doing very well at the moment. I'm really not that patient. Okay, I'm over my hissy fit, as my Mother would say. I'll just show you my breakfast room hutch for now...


I must tell you ~ I love to play! Of all my pieces of furniture, this little hutch in my breakfast room gets messed with alot! During the summer I lined the backboard with scrapbooking paper! I love that!! So I'll show you how it looks at the moment!


Lots of white...

Oh, look at this soup tureen I found in a thrift store for $10! It's really very large, but it didn't have a ladle. I keep looking for one and one day I know I'll find just the perfect ladle.
If you know me, you know I love teapots! Now, I ask you, can you love teapots? Yes! Indeed you can love tea pots!
Little pieces to go along with my beloved teapot! I think these all came from Marshall's. Can you love Marshall's? You tell me!
See all of these little housey things? A cookie jar, pitcher, salt and pepper and creamer? Well, I found all of these at Marshalls again last summer on the clearance isle. Yay! I needed the sugar bowl, but they didn't have one. I must tell you, Susan at Between Naps on the Porch, has the dishes that go with these pieces and they are to die for. But I won't cover her dishes, no I won't! ;)

Aren't these darling?

My old rooster salt and peppers from my childhood are doing their yard bird best to look right at home here! Good little old yard birds!
Have you noticed the little dessert plates hiding here? I saw these in Alabama this summer (actually it was when we evacuated for Hurricane Ike) in a little antique store and just fell in love with them. Look at the designs on each one...



This one is my favorite...looks just like Mr. Precious and me! ;)






I just think these are the most precious little dishes. On their backsides it says Bavaria Germany.
Well, there you have it...my little breakfast room hutch. Can you love breakfast room hutches? You bet your little sweet dishes you can!! :)
Be a bunch of sweeties,
I'll leave you with a little Note Song~
Ain't We Got Fun
Every morning
Every evening
Ain't we got fun
Not much money
Oh but honey
Ain't We Got Fun
The rent's unpaid dear
We have'nt a bus
But smiles were made dear
For people like us
In the winter
In the summer
Don't we have fun
Times are bum and getting bummer
Still we have fun
There's nothing surer
The rich get rich and the poor get children
In the meantime
In between time
Ain't we got fun
Every morning
Every evening
Don't we got fun
Twins and cares dear
Come in pairs dear
Don't we have fun
We've only started
As mommer and pop
Are we downhearted
I'll say that we're not
Landlords mad and getting madder
Ain't we got fun
Times are bad and getting badder
Still we have fun
There's nothing surer
The rich get rich and the poor get laid off
In the meantime
In between time
Ain't we got fun
Night or day-time
It's all play-time
Ain't we got fun
Hot or cold days
Any old days
Ain't we got fun
If wifie wishes
To go to a play
Don't wash the dishes
Just throw them away
Street car seats are awful narrow
Ain't we got fun
They won't smash up our Pierce Arrow
We ain't got none
They've cut my wages
income tax will be so much smaller
When I'm paid off
I'll be laid off
Ain't we got fun
