Homemaking Mondays: A Pretty Hutch

Today I'd love to share with you my hutch.  
My husband bought this for me years ago and I really love it. 
When we moved this last time I decided to 
do something different with it. 

I started with my ivy plant and then my 
caribou antler that my parents gave me years ago. 
Then I added my blue tea set called Country Lane
by Wood & Sons - England.

I love using this set and I'm just a fan of blue and white dishes. 

I added my little dolls that used to sit by my 
grandmother's clock in her living-room. 
I also found that little wheelbarrow and it seems to be just right there. 
I also added one of my favourite Bible verses.

Here is a closer look at the Country Lane....
one could imagine how lovely it would be to walk down it. 

I also have this sweet tea light lamp my husband 
gave me and it's so nice! 

Then I also added this sweet little bear.  
The only thing that I remember being given 
by my one grandfather.  It was actually for my 
first daughter.  She sits out to be enjoyed. 
I also found that little broom at the free store and 
it needed to come home with me. :) 

I'd found that sweet little rocker and added a little 
stuffed bear I've had since college.  
It used to smell like cinnamon.  
Then a little canister with a tea light. 
I also found that lovely blue and cream plate at 
Home Hardware and had to get just one. 
I'm going to use it for a serving dish. 

This plate was a wedding gift to my husband and I almost 24 years ago. 

I love the mix of colours on the top shelf...and 
the outdoorsy feel it has. 
I love to have scripture displayed.  
For comfort and for witness. 
What an unending truth we find in God's Word!

Thanks for dropping by!  

I'm starting to really enjoy being able to find things again. 
Things have a place now and it's starting to become comfortable. 

Today I'm canning some tomato soup. 
Then I'm dehydrating the skins to use for tomato paste 
in soups or stew.  I put the extra juice in the fridge
and will use that in soup this week.  
I hate wasting anything. 
It's not that we don't like the canned tomato soup 
from the store.
It's just something that I've always wanted to do.  
It does taste pretty amazing as well. 

I've also been dehydrating fireweed leaves and 
calendula petals and yarrow blossoms
for tea.

It's just lovely to be able to put some things by for 
use in the winter months. 

Hope you're having a lovely day! 
Love and Prayers,

The hutch is a great way to display special items! I especially like the pretty blue and white transferwares and cute teapot lamp!

Your hutch looks wonderful. I am doing the same bit by bit putting things up for the Winter months. A beautiful taste of Summer on a cold day.

Your hutch looks lovely! You and I have similar taste. I too love blue and white dishes. The ivy looks perfect on your hutch. I especially like your scripture art.

May you have a blessed day!

Lovely hutch! Looks like something out of a magazine! :)

Love how you've decorated your hutch. I have the same exact hutch, how funny is that! It was my uncle's elderly neighbors' hutch and he asked me if I'd like it. I've had it for about 4 or 5 years. God bless!!

I love this! I think the way you have the cups and saucers is so cute (going to steal that lol). I always try to keep things so uniform and this looks so much cuter! And those figurines . . . are they Josef figurines?? I have a few that I've purchased over the years and am always on the hunt for good deals on them. Yours are so cute and so precious since they were your grandma's!
