A Little Redecorating...

This week I did a little redecorating project in my hutch!  In the above photo, you can see it was sweet and colorful.   I loved how it looked, but was ready for a change!  I was inspired by Jacqueline at Cabin and Cottage .  I love this beautiful header and her sideboard redo !

From Cabin and Cottage

While I don't have as many of the pretty pieces and goodies she has, I thought I could do my hutch in a similar color scheme for fall.  I brought out some nice pieces and linens I had stored,  and re-used some pieces already on the hutch!

An old chippy scale, transferware, and glass jars made a sweet vignette...

and a delicate little leaf dish for fall~

The pretty teapot was my husband's mother's and the silverplate tray behind it is engraved "Bread".

Just like the inspiration...I have to have my wonderful little dogs... The tureen was made by my mother many years ago...

This lovely old bride's basket holds pretty coral...

I'll probably add some old leatherbound books and a few more ironstone and transferware pieces, but I love how it turned out~ it feels simple and clean~ perfect for fall~ and just what I was going for!  Thank you Jacqueline for the inspiration!

Until next time...


  1. Love it all, especially the sweet lil dogs! I also have a small dog collection. Happy Junkin, Cathy aka GGJ

  2. Hi Linda,
    Your hutch is gorgeous, now I can't wait to add some autumnal touches to our home! I really love the silver pheasant, and your cute little dogs. The tureen that your mom made is beautiful! Your silver pieces are great, too! I picked up a little vintage silver creamer at an antique shop on our trip to the U.P. It has a great patina that I love. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Beautiful transformation, Linda. I love items that have sentimental value. Priceless! La

  4. Beautiful, both your inspiration pic and the way your hutch turned out! I love all of the wonderful vintage items you have and how you have them all arranged, so pretty!

  5. Very pretty. Is that platter on the bottom a Homer Laughlin piece?

  6. Love your hutch and all the fun stuff in it! I'm a new follower....

  7. Looks very pretty and fallish, Linda. I'd love to redo mine...but I don't have any spare space to store things. So what you see is what you get!


  8. It looks lovely! :) There is nothing wrong with a change from time to time. That's what keeps life interesting! :)

  9. It turned out you have me inspired but I have to go to maybe tomorrow♥


  10. I love the look of your hutch and you have some really great stuff in there too.


  11. Linda
    What a beautiful job you did on the hutch!!! I am a big fan of that color scheme. The pieces are just perfectly placed. Have a wonderful week.


  12. So pretty!! You have so many lovely pieces...isn't it fun to play with them?

  13. Hi Linda,
    OH...looking so good! It is the little things that can add so much to our decor! Linens are always a hit with me along with "puppies"!!!
    I hope you are enjoying today!!! I'm going to stain another door and then head outside and rake a little!

  20. Hi Linda,
    It looks gorgeous!!!! I love what you did--and so neat to see the changes--wow!!!

  21. Linda, this turned out so beautiful! Your mother made that tureen? Wow! I love the dogs. You know I have a thing for that myself. The silver plate with the etched "bread" is a favorite. What are you going to put in those glass apothecary jars? hmmm...vintage clothes pins, small balls of twine, spools, cinnamon stick bundles? My gears are turning.

  22. Oh I just love this beautiful hutch and I love all the beautiful collections you have in there! It gives it a cozied-in look for warm Fall evenings!

  31. Hi Sophie & Bailey

    Anyway I added how the old tea tiles were used to set your tea pot on. I ment to do that so thanks for the question.

    I tried to take a picture of Sissy my pug last night, however she is not very photogenic like me.


  32. Oh, it looks beautiful! Everything looks so pretty in your cabinet!

    (BTW, following you back! )

    Have a great day!

  33. Your mother made that tureen? Wow, it's so pretty, and that's one thing I've never known how to do: pottery and such. I love it when I see post titles with "redecorating" in them. You did a great job. Jacqueline is indeed quite inspiring!

  34. I LOVEEEEE your new look friend!!!! I am falling in love with ironstone & transferware. They had alot of it in Texas & it was hard not to spend a fortune on all the gorgeous pieces I saw!!
