A pretty Brown Transferware platter peering through the windows in my Hutch. It was a gift from my Husband, and he didn't even know I wanted one. He spotted it at a thrift shop and picked it up for me. (he's really getting good at that).
I freshened my Hutch for the Summer, removing a great deal of china, and adding touches of white here and there. I'm seriously thinking of taking out my reds and putting up my Browns, but may wait until Fall.
That will give me time to get the right containers to store it. I also feel more inclined to do some "nesting" in the Fall, the weather is cozier.
Over the years you can accumulate a lot of dishes. And lately I've been trying to "de clutter" and "scale down".
But something happens when I see pretty things, especially if they're a bargain. They tend to come home with me.
And now I have my Hubby doing it. He picked up this Rooster last year for me, as soon as he saw it, he figured I would fancy it, I did, and do. He's a big spender, it cost $1. But that actually makes me love it more ;)
I have been suffering from a little bit of "Bloggie Burn Out". I hear it's quite common. And highly contagious. "The Blog Doctor" has told me to get lots of Sunshine, and Fresh Air. He feels I need to spend more time with my Friends and Family too. So if I'm not posting quite as often as I usually do, well...you can find me Poolside (Doctor's Orders)-;)
