Fallen Whiteness in the Hutch

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, since it's the season of Autumn...Fall, I seem to have gotten a little spurt of energy and decided to empty the china cabinet in the dining room and redo it!
I'm so talented like that you know! ;)

Now I love color and my Fallen decorating is filled with oranges, yellows and gold all except in the dining room this year, I'm using white things! Me, a gal who loves color? Yep!
Come a little closer and I'll show you.

Do you like it? This is the middle section. I think it looks rather calm. So unlike me! I'm a sight you know! :) Well, everything in my china cabinet is white except the little sweet hand painted tea pot, creamer and sugar my mother gave me many years ago. I just had to poke it in here! :)

The left hand section. I had to open the doors for you because the glare is really bad.

Here's the right hand side. The white crocheted runner was here before I tore up the insides of my china cabinet so I thought I would leave it.

Here's a little mosaic of all my little shelves ~ Fallen shelves filled with white things. So unlike me but I'm liking it.

Since I'm so creative, I thought I would take a snap through the side glasses. I hope you know I'm teasing...sort of! :)

Here's the other side peeping in through the glass.

I'm liking all of my Fallen whiteness in my china cabinet. Now, did you see the little touches of oranges and gold I poked all around? I just had to have a little of my Fallen colors among the whites!!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

The Logical Song

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,
joyfully, playfully watching me.
But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible,
logical, responsible, practical.
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
clinical, intellectual, cynical.

There are times when all the world's asleep,
the questions run too deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who I am.

Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical,
liberal, fanatical, criminal.
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're
acceptable, respecable, presentable, a vegtable!

At night, when all the world's asleep,
the questions run so deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who I am.

  1. Love the artsy side shot. I thought I had a lot of creamers! And you have some full sets too. I like that you included the family set. It is pale colors, so I think it sits in there well with everything else.

  2. oh, I especially like how you have the little arrangement actually on the plate (in a side shot you can see)...that is nice :) ...I'd love it if my hutch had glassed sides so why not take those photos?!

  3. LOVING the fallen whiteness, Shelia! :D You are so good at arranging vignettes!

  4. love the white! I have a set of white & a set of...well lets just say I love dishes LOL

  5. I really like your use of whites for fall decorating, classic and chic!


  6. Shelia, love your whiteness in your hutch. You have such pretty dishes and things. I like using white to counter all the orange we see at this time of the year.-----Shannon



  8. Now girlfriend, you know how my heart loves white! I think your hutch looks gorgeous! We have many of the same pieces (thank you, Home Goods)

    The punches of color is perfect. Beautiful!

    Another lovely hutch presentation :)

  9. I love all those white dishes! I have them in my kitchen on display as well. I noticed that we both have the same square cream and sugar set too! I think white dishes grouped together look wonderful!

  10. I love how the white adds a sense of calm and yet makes the fall colors pop!

  11. I love that song by Supertramp!
    The little teapot set is so pretty.
    By the way, the camera takes great PICS.
    I love your happy world!!!!!

  12. It looks wonderful. I know I couldn't pull this off. Love the pitcher and sugar & creamer sets.

  13. looks beautiful and the dried flowers say hello from the fall season. We are starting to get cold damp weather here in Missouri and I am not at all excited. Thanks for sharing. Richard from, my old Historic House.

  14. I'm liking it too Shelia. It looks so nice with all the white dishes and the pops of orange. Supertramp is one of hubby's favorite bands. :)

  17. Lovin' your white fall collection! Looks beautiful paired with the beige hydrangea! :)

  18. Very pretty, Shelia! The creamers are fabulous! I like an all white vignette when we are surrounded by color this time of year...how refreshing!! You did a great job. Love that side shot, too. Are you still loving that camera or what?!


  19. Hi Shelia *hugs*
    I think the white looks great in contrast to those pretty pumpkins too. Nice to change up. I haven't seen so much white but I like it too.

  20. Oh this is just simply gorgeous!! You have it decorated so beautifully!!

  21. The Fall colors really pop alongside the white! You have such lovely things! You surround yourself with beauty and music...and I love that! ♥

  22. Very pretty. It makes me regret taking down all the white I had in my hutch. Love how you hung those Fall floral spray's from the plates. ~Ames

  23. All your dishes are so pretty Shelia! I especially like the lovely teaset your mother gave you. What a treasure that is! Love your banner, too! Bess

  24. I'm usually a color person too, but sometimes the white can be very effective.
