Antique English Hutch

I have been on an unintended blog break these past few days…

~ ~ Had problems with my existing web host site and moved to another . .

~ ~ ~ ~ and all is right with the world!…

So…there’s a new hutch in town…

~ ~ a neighbor is moving . . downsizing . . and selling many treasures from England.

I went over to her house to look at a dresser for my granddaughter . .

~ ~ and spied this cute old hutch that is from England.

The owner had bought this cutie in an antique shop in England . .

~ ~ and had it shipped here when they moved to the U.S.

I have a collection of Fiesta and decided to place this collection in the hutch.

I started this collection many, many years ago . . .

~ ~ buying my first pieces at $20.00 for 4 place settings!!

The English Cottage Ware was a gift from a friend many years ago.

My Vintage Lipton Tea Pot set is also nestled among the Fiesta and Cottage Ware.

And there’s my Shirley Temple Pitcher and Mug…:)

My Shirley Temple vintage RC Cola fan…

~ ~ I so remember having those types of fans in church a looong time ago.

I have a collection of vintage Jell-O little cookbooks all dated in the 1920’s…

~ ~ I love the patina of the hutch’s countertop..it is pegged into the lower cabinet.

I love this so very rustic, handmade hutch with all its flaws and age . .

Placed some of my vintage items below . . . .

~ ~ on the hunt for some great baskets for this area . .

~ ~ ~ ~ and notice the crayons in one of the jars?..my son’s . . .

And don’t ask me how old they are!!!

A collection of vintage items on the top of the hutch . .

Do you spy the milk bottle with the Japanese letters? . . A “souvenir”

When you get milk (a treat) as a snack in Japan . . it is served in these bottles . .

~ ~ that you have to return…OOPS!..forgot to return mine!!! 🙂

So are you wondering where my pie safe that was in this space “walked to”?? Stay tuned.

Am I sad that a great neighbor is moving….

~ ~ yes, however, downsizing from one large house to 2 smaller ones . . .

~ ~ ~ ~ one here, and one in the Sunshine State . . a good thing.

I purchased many things that day . . so stay tuned for more of my finds!

Have a wonderful day . . and so glad that “I am back” !!!
