Monday Memes - My Incredible Hutch! :)

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to another Monday. Hope you all had a safe and fun Halloween. We had over 100 children come by and ran out of candy at 8:30! Good thing, because I love Resse's Peanut Butter Cups if you know what I mean! :)

Well, I hope I'm not committing a Blog sin - I'm playing four memes today! I'm joining Dear Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday, Dear Sally at Smiling Sally for Blue Monday, Dear Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday and Dear Cielo at The House in the Roses for Show Off Your Cottage Monday. So after your visit with me please pop on over and check out all of the fascinating things that are happening all across the Land of Blog on this Monday.

This is my tiny incredible hutch in my breakfast room and it's my favorite play toy! I have just recently painted my walls in the kitchen and breakfast room from red to yellow! You can see the before and the after.

Now I really did love my red walls and think maybe they even look better over all than the yellow. But I love change and my walls had been red for about five years and were beginning to close in on me. That's enough! Time to change.

Here's my hutch up against the yellow walls. The yellow, Whisper Yellow by Behr, is a little deeper than it shows in these photos. I do love this color and it even makes my tiny room look a little larger. But now I'm going to have to repaint all of the creamy color of the trim and cabinets. Here you can see I've already painted the wainscoting white. I have a little health affliction that has just popped up and now I'll have to wait awhile before I can start painting again.

Now you can see I've changed out the top of my tiny hutch to hold my tureens. I like this look! And of course I had to pop a Rooster up there! :)

Here's a mosaic of the three shelves.


Ms. Hen...
Little precious Rooster creamers with their matching underplates. We bought these in Italy. I love my little Rooster creamers. Can you love little Rooster creamers? Well, you bet your goat's milk you can! :) These little dears are sitting on a folded up paper towels - why? you ask? Well I had washed them and they're made of pottery. Being the impatient one I am, I didn't want to wait until they fully dried on the bottom (the bottom's are not glazed) so I popped them up here anyway ~ therefore ~ sitting on folded up paper towels. Do you do stuff like this? :)

Here are some of the serving pieces to my dinnerware - Old Britain Castles by Johnson Brothers. See the tiny little personal creamer? I just love it! Can you...yes, you can! :) The pattern for this little tiny treasure is called 'Spode's Tower' by Copeland Spode. But it's a perfect fit with the family, don't you think?

Well, shut my mouth! I have lined the backboard of my tiny hutch with scrapbooking paper and there is some of it poking out and making me look bad! For shame. I didn't even notice till I snapped! Isn't that the way it always goes? Anyway, before I was so embarrassed, here is a platter, not the same pattern, but the same color as my dinnerware. So it works just fine. I don't know the pattern, but it's made by Churchill.

Here's another plate, doesn't go with my dinnerware, but it's the same color and I love it! I have another one of these too. This is called Myotts "Country Lane" by Staffordshire Ware.

Oh, joyness! Oh, hallelujahness! I was in my beloved Marshalls and saw this pitcher and it does go with my dinnerware. Do you want to know how much I paid for it? Well, you had better sit down - I paid a whole $2.99 for it! Can you believe it? No no Nannette, I would never lie to you!


I do believe this is a coffee server but I use it as a tea pot! It's beautiful, the same color as my dinnerware, but is not the same pattern. Do I care? Heck no! This just makes my dishes look more juicy! Don't you think? :) This is called "English Scene" by Adams, a member of the Wedgwood Group.


Now just a few snaps of Fallness that seems to be going on in my tiny incredible hutch.

I traded out my Rooster paintings and little round Rooster plates for these cutie square plates. I hung one on each side of my tiny incredible hutch. Do you like these?

Well, Dear Ones, I suppose you could say I've gone from darkness to light in my tiny breakfast room. From red to yellow and oh, I'm a happy fellow (well, gal, but 'gal' didn't rhyme!).

There you have it, Dear Ones, and again I do hope I'm not committing a Blog Sin by playing so many memes today. I'm just having so much fun and I can't help myself. So I guess I could say, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". :P

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

I come home in the morning light,
My mother says "When you gonna live your life right?"
Oh,mother,dear,
We're not the fortunate ones,
And girls,
They wanna have fu-un.
Oh,girls,

The phone rings in the middle of the night,
My father yells "What you gonna do with your life?"

And hide her away from the rest of the world.
I wanna be the one to walk in the sun.
