A little Spring decor...

My sister had this hutch, table and chairs for years in her house...for maybe 15 plus years...she bought a new set and gave this to us. We took it to our very good friend and he sanded it down to the bare wood, repaired a bit of damage, and put on layers of poly to protect it. It's made of pine and I really like it alot! It sits in the eating area of our kitchen and I keep many old and new treasures in the hutch. I like changing out the dishes and other items depending on the season...

Right now I will show you what it looks like for this Spring...I am not a huge collector, but I like certain things...Fiesta Ware, vintage Pyrex and casseroles...and pitchers...



I love the turquoise and yellow Pyrex the best...this is my very favorite casserole behind these two new salt and pepper bunnies I picked up this year from Target! These loaf pans are a favorite too...





This yellow pitcher goes well with the Fiesta Ware, but it says Marcres Ovenware on the bottom. It also says it is made in the USA. I haven't researched that company...I just liked it...like that it was made here...and it works well with the Fiesta Ware! The bunnies in the basket are also salt and pepper shakers. I got them at a craft fair a few years ago. The plate in the background is new. It's part of a set.







Here's some of my Fiesta Ware and a cow milk pitcher. He was new when I bought him about 25 years ago. The bunny is an egg keeper with some glitter eggs in there now.








My son bought this cow cookie jar for me at a thrift shop. It is made by Otagiri in Japan and he said it is quite collectible...I like it and the fact that he bought it for me because I love cows was enough for me...there is a leaf serving plate and some leaf bowls in there too.












A Fiesta Ware pitcher...another bunny plate and a paper mache carrot. I have had this carrot for quite a few years...I always worry how it will hold up, but it is doing well...














Another casserole, some more bowls and a couple bunnies...that's it for my Spring decorated hutch...I hope you enjoyed seeing it..it was fun to show you!

The weather isn't very Spring like right now...it's pretty gloomy outside. I've been sewing all morning and I think it's about as warm as it's going to get, so I'm off to the back yard for some gardening...

Enjoy the day, my friends!!
