Kitchen Hutch

Hello, Dear Ones. Well, I thought I'd show you how I've dressed my little kitchen hutch for now.
 Just light, bright and sunny.
 A few months back I found these lovely old dishes. I was given the two dinner plates on the top shelf by a friend many years ago and had them hanging on the wall in my old kitchen. No markings on the back, just sweet little plates. So...I was so pleased to find these other pieces!
 Aren't they so dainty and pretty. I was so glad the creamer, sugar bowl and gravy boat where still intact. They have pretty curves don't you think?



A nice sized platter and since the plates are smaller than the dinner plates, I think these would be the breakfast plates as they are a little bit bigger than a dessert plate. Any way. Love 'em!
The set had some cups, saucers and bowls too.  I'm still milking my hydrangea blooms and they are drying out nicely!
I poked in three of my little cow creamers just to spice things up a bit. I just love these little bovine cuties.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my little hutch today. Can you believe it's already August? We'll be poking up Fall before you know it.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Baby I'm A Want You


Baby I'm-A Want You
Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you
You the only one I care enough to hurt about
Maybe I'm-a crazy
But I just can't live without...
Your lovin' and affection
Givin' me direction
Like a guiding light to help me through a darkest hour
Lately I'm a-prayin'
That you'll always be a-stayin' beside me
Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Feeling all the while and never really knowing why...
Lately I'm a-prayin'
That you'll always be a-stayin' beside me.
Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Then you came along and made me laugh
And made me cry...
You taught me why...
Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you
Oh, it took so long to find you, baby
Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you

  1. I always love to see how you have decorated your hutch Shelia and not just because you have my favourite rooster pitchers on the top! Your new china is very pretty indeed isn't it and what an amazing find to go with the plates that you have been loving all these years! How great is that!!!! They were obviously meant for you. xx

  2. I love how you styled your hutch. The china is beautiful, the cow creamers made me smile this morning, and I couldn't help but notice your little Italian rooster pitchers on top. Very pretty!!!

  4. Shelia! These dishes are the "Mildred" pattern by Mt. Clemens (Mich) Pottery from 1939~
    John purchased some for me several years ago because of the name! Your display is gorgeous!

  7. What a pretty pattern and lovely arrangement! I have older dishes that also have a plate slightly smaller than the dinner plate, and they call it the "luncheon" plate. They are very hard to find, and I use them all the time!
    Happy weekend to you!

  8. Hi Shelia! You did a great job. Everything looks like it is out of a magazine page. BRAVO! I have to say that I love your little cows a lot.
    Take good care of yourself,

  9. Hi there. I have had the Mildred pattern for years as I liked it was an older pattern. I was calling it the wrong name on my blog and my friend CATTAILS Mildred told me she also had the pattern and told me why she knew its name. Your set looks like it is in really good condition. Enjoy....

  10. Oh my goodness Sheila where on earth did you ever find the sitting down little creamer???! So cute! I started collecting them about a year ago. The plates are lovely......those are my favorites....the old fashioned ones. Looks real pretty

  12. Your hutch is so beautiful Shelia, my husband and are are working on the one that has been in his family for over 100 years. Someday it may be as pretty as yours. I love your dishes, the pattern reminds me of a stray creamer I have from a second hand shop. Your creamers look perfect tucked in!

  13. BREAD was one of my favorite bands in junior high - we listened to The Best of Bread at every slumber party, and it takes me right back.

    Love how you styled your hutch. Everything works so perfectly together!

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Hugs.

  14. Oh I love those dishes - so glad that you found some more of the pattern. Your hutch looks lovely and the creamer's really add to it. I finally found one at JoAnne's on sale for 70% off. I grabbed that real quick. I should have gotten all three of them and put some away for little Christmas presents. Sometimes you just need a little Hostess gift.
    Your new lovely home is coming together nicely, everything looks so good.
    Have a great weekend Shelia.

  15. I like the simplicity of the hutch decor, very nice! You know, I think my grandmother had dishes like that! I always thought they were so pretty! Now I'm wondering who in the family has them!

    2. O wow! My mother had 2 serving bowls in this pattern when I was growing up. I have no idea what happened to them, and I never knew what they were called. Thanks for the memory!

  19. Shelia..it's just beautiful. I love every bit of it..just my type of thing. The dishes are perfect on it too. Is the color a very light yellow or is it an extremely light green. You did a wonderful job on it! Just so sweet!!!

  27. Love your hutch, Shelia! I wish I had the room here for a piece like that. They are fun to decorate, too, besides being so functional.

    Great luck on finding more plates. That pattern looks familiar, but I don't know what it is called or by who. It suits for Summer decorating!

  29. Love the hutch Shelia, You know that hutch is special to me. I have it's cousin in my home! I was inspired by you and my sweet Auntie. The dishes looks beautiful. And I am in love with your little cow creamers too. I have one, and again I was inspired by you. You really have a talent for putting displays together. I love visiting your blog and seeing what new things you have done. And I must say, I am loving your little "doll, Marion". I make doll clothes for my little granddaughters also, so I love seeing what new things you have made. Yes, you do have talented fingers!!!!! Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs to you my friend, Karie
