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...

  1. Your hutch is decorated so beautifully. I like the color of it. Those dishes are wonderful. I like you added some chickens here and there. It's a great collection.:) Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  2. This is darling, Sheila. I love your cute chicks on nests. The pink willow is beautiful. I love your new kitchen.

  3. Everything is so pretty! You have great taste. I have only two pink willow plates, but I love them.

  4. Oh I love everything about this, Shelia! You are truly a woman after my own who likes her "stuff" and not liking empty spaces. I have been a rooster lover ever since I was a little girl and sing "I love my rooster, my rooster loves me; I cherish my rooster on the green bay tree; My little rooster goes "cock-a-doo-doo!"...De-doodley, doodley, doodly-do! Yep, it's a real song! Love everything you've done here!

  5. I love your little breakfast room. So pretty with all your pink dishes and milk glass yard birds. :-) Thanks for showing us your beautiful decor.

  6. Oh, I love it, Shelia! We sold our house and I am still looking for a down-sized home and finding nothing that I like that would work for us. It is fun to see that you have downsized and are enjoying your new home. Wish me luck!

    LOVE your little ol' hutch. It is darling. My dishes like yours are packed away until we get set up again. I miss my dishes!!! xo Diana

  7. Love your hutch and those wonderful pink transferware dishes. I had to laugh, I'd forgotten that you named your little cabinet, Charlotte, and I kept looking for a doggie or kitty or something (gotta love the "drawers"). Your new home is wonderful, smart girl to hide the un needed window for more "stuff"!

  8. Oh Shelia, You know I love your little green hutch. She is a sweet thing, beautiful and fun to decorate. I would hide an unneeded window so I could show my "stuff". We love our "stuff"! And it's ok. I love your breakfast area and you cute decorated kitchen. I agree with you, I like my kitchen to be decorated,with the feeling of coziness, I don't do the sleek, bare look. Love your style my dear sweet friend. A big Hug sent to you.

  9. Your little breakfast room is charming. It is perfect with your kitchen - loved that tour too. My kitchen cabinets are white and I painted my island blue too!

  10. Green is such a pretty color for the hutch!

  11. Me gusta mucho como se ven los estantes con esa vajilla de color rosa, la cocina se ve hermosa y además ya se ve tu encanto en la decoración ..Simplemente hermosa...Saludos Sheila y que tengas un buen fin de semana.

  12. Hi Shirley! It's always so nice to hear for you and your sweet comments. I can't speak Spanish but I always know what you say as I use Google Translate! Hope you have a nice weekend too.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

    1. Hola, Sheila, me pasa igual con el inglés, medio lo entiendo así que a usar traductor..Pero lo más importante es que nos comunicamos..Saludos te aprecio mucho a ti y a tu esposo, eso que solo los conozco por acá, pero no hace falta saber que son buenas personas..Abrazos

  13. Your breakfast room is so inviting and cozy. I can imagine how wonderful it is to sit there and enjoy time in your home.

  14. Beautiful absolutely beautiful.

  15. Shelia,
    I love your sweet little green cabinet!
    The combination of the pink willow combined with your milk glass is breathtakingly beautiful!
    Great idea to put the cabinet in front of the window. . .while still allowing in the light, but making space for your cherished furniture pieces.
    Many of my friends are in the beginning stages of downsizing and making decisions on what to keep, what to rid of. I will be sharing your unique furniture placement with many of them!
    Thank you for always inspiring and decorating from your heart in your beautiful home.

  16. Love all the pink willow, very soft and pretty!! Always loved your breakfast table and chairs, so sweet.... And good for you for covering up un-needed windows. So many windows are useless!!! And I am also one for having room for 'stuff'......

  17. Always nice to see that little hutch of yours all decked out! I know windows are nice to have for lots of light in the house, but you do need walls to be able to decorate....I think you've done a good job in that breakfast room.
    Have a nice day

  18. I never tire of seeing your stuff, it makes me happy too.

  19. Awe, just love your kitchen and all that is in it! Those dishes....I have a few pieces like that but oh I love them. Your baker's rack was the first one I had ever seen posted that inspired me. I actually pinned it. The hutch is so pretty. Glad you are loving your home. Hugs and blessings, Cindy
