Come Into My Breakfast Room

Hello, Dear Ones! Hope you are all doing well and staying cool in this hot hot summer heat. I just crank the air conditioning down and stay indoors. :) Today I wanted to continue with my kitchen tour and show you my little breakfast room. It's not actually a room but an area off the main kitchen.
 I'm going to show you my olden kitchen hutch that I decorated today.
 But first let me show you the breakfast "room", ah hem...area. This is a nice sized little area and we are enjoying it. That is the pantry with the green wreath on the door. It's the smallest pantry I've ever had but it's amazing when you downsize how in a just a little while you can begin to make things work.
 Here's my little hutch. I love her. I painted her this soft green color many years ago and still love it. The green color is so soothing I think it works as a neutral color and would work with almost any color you wanted to use on the walls. I think I've told you before but I'm going to tell you again...behind the little hutch is a window that almost reaches the floor like the one to the left. Well, I love lots of light but I wanted to use my hutch and needed some wall space!  I'm so talented so I hung up a white cotton curtain in the inside of the window from top to the bottom and then poked my little hutch right in front of it! Works for me!
Here you can see the top of the window and there is always a little light shining in. I poked down three of my white yard birds on top and twirled a greenery garland around them and then added some little fairy lights. I'm loving this! :)
 During our move back to Texas one of the handles on the drawers got broken. I just went to Hobby Lobby and found these pretty green Jadeite looking glass knobs and screwed them in. I like how they look! They look kinda blue but they are green.

I'll ramble a little more. Do you see that handsome milk glass Rooster? Well, that handsome guy was my inspiration to decorating the hutch. I gathered most of my milk glass hens and chicks on nests and poked them all in here. He is certainly feeling like he is the king of his castle, well his hutch! :)
I love to share everything with you so sit back and I'll show you each shelf. Here is the top one filled with milk glass yard birds and dishes. The little one on the left sitting on the straw colored nest was bought in upstate New York at an estate sale when we first visited my daughter and her family there, brought her back to Texas, then moved with her back to New York, then brought her back again to Texas! Whew! Confusing? :)
 Second shelf. I poked pieces of my Pink Willow all around. Isn't it pretty? I have lots of Blue Willow too. There's Mr. Rooster standing there looking all proud and stuff.
 Then here is the bottom shelf with more milk glass hens, Pink Willow and one little Chickie cross stitch. This space is making me feel very happy. Oh, I poked a few grapes on the milk glass stand. They will really have to chew hard as these grapes are faux! :D
Here you can see the little breakfast room table and chairs - older than dirt and how the room flows into the kitchen. I see some kitchens that are all sleek, neat and empty looking - ain't gonna happen to me. I love stuff! :) You can see Charlotte standing at the end of the island with some LeCreuset pots and a few Roosters! Her drawers (that sounds nasty, doesn't it?) holds linens.

Now you can see the entire breakfast room. I poked my baker's rack in front of more windows! I gotta have room for my stuff, y'all! I'll show that to you later.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my little hutch in my new breakfast room today!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ love me some Neil

"Sweet Caroline"

Where it began
I can't begin to knowin'
But then I know it's growin' strong

Was in the spring
And spring became the summer
Who'd have believed you'd come along

Hands, touchin' hands
Reachin' out, touchin' me, touchin' you

Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I've been inclined
To believe they never would
But now I...

...look at the night
And it don't seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two

And when I hurt
Hurtin' runs off my shoulders
How can I hurt when holdin' you?

Warm, touchin' warm
Reachin' out, touchin' me, touchin' you

Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I've been inclined
To believe they never would
Oh, no, no

Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
Sweet Caroline
I believed they never could

Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good...
