A Little Change-Up...

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I spent some time on a FUN antiquing trip with my daughter as we are beginning to prepare in earnest for Junk Bonanza ,which is coming up in a short 3-1/2 weeks!  On the home front, I decided it was time to change-up the hutch!  I enjoyed the spring hutch so much, with all of the green and yellow...but daffodils in August is pushing it!  I have been looking towards fall more and more right now and the hutch was calling out to me for something new...

Lots of stoneware, baskets, wood and silverplate...

I found this antique basket at an estate sale not long ago...

love the braided handle...

An altered peat pot holds old clothespins...

such beautiful patina on the wood!

You might recognize many of my fun finds and projects gathered here.

I collect engraved silverware...hotel silver, and others...

Another collection is antique cow prints...I used one here...

of course, one of my old scales had to be included, too!

Milk glass, stoneware, transferware, lace, and wood all have their special places here...

This beautiful bowl holds long dried the faded, pale tones...

The oak leaf decoration is wonderful for the season...

The tea leaf plate I recently found, partners with a teapot which was my mother-in-law's...

and a salt glaze jug shares the space with brown and white transferware, and rooster salt and pepper shakers!

I love the faded colors of this beautiful old book.

I'm not missing those daffodils too much!

Until next time...


  1. My gosh- You certainly have lots of treasures! I love the patina on those old clothespins. How many times were they grabbed to peg clothes onto the line? I also love your tea pattern plate. Soo many sweet finds!!!! xo Diana

  2. Looks great. Love your old scale. I think most of us are ready to switch to fall.

  3. Ekk... JB is only 3 1/2 weeks away!!! I need to make more money! LOL!!Love all your vintage finds and they look awesome in your hutch! When I get home I'll be changing out my mantle. Feeling "fall" in the air this weekend! LOVE IT!!
    Thank you for putting up the MN blogger gathering on your sidebar!
    deb :)

  4. Love every piece on your hutch. Now I want to go and change mine - but I know its not happening today. I think I will start shelf by shelf. Great inspiration. Thanks.

  5. You have a beautiful collection! I'm jealous!

  6. You have such pretty things Linda! Love that pretty blue pitcher in your last post. So lovely with the zinnias. Mimi

  7. Linda,
    It all looks that scale and that neat old basket. I went to the bookstore looking for your feature in the magazine, and was so excited to see it in print....congrats again:)


  8. I wish I could come to see your place! You have wonderful treasures.

  9. I think the cooler weather has us all thinking about putting away the summer decor. Your hutch looks lovely as usual filled with all your vintage goodies!

  10. Everything looks so warm together with the wood, linens and ironstone, Linda!

  11. What a wonderful mix of neutrals and it!
    See you soon!


  12. It's hot and sticky here today and yesterday I nearly melted... and I woke up today thinking how much I am looking forward to Autumn (as it is here!)

    I love your hutch.... my most favourite thing are your spoons! I have a couple of these and I love them.

    But of course, as usual EVERYTHING is beautiful :)


  13. Such a beautiful display dear Linda.
    Your hutch is a great background for all this wonderful items you collected- and which looks amazing together. I love the old basket with all the cream and nature- together.
    Enjoy, I did!
    Hugs from Dorthe

  14. I collect a lot of the things you put in the hutch so of course I love it!

  15. This is styled beautifully. I love all of your touches.

  16. Love each and every single thing in the hutch!!! LOVE it!!
    XO Kris

  17. I'm in LOVE with your change-up! Everything is so beautifully displayed. I'm ready for a change-up too!!

  18. I'm admiring that silverware you've got there! Very neat! I only have a set of spoons myself. Working on getting some more. I like the stamped letters!

  19. All so gorgeous! I am in the same mindset...time for a Fall change! Visting from Nifty Thrifty Tuesday today.

  20. Linda, Your hutch looks so good with your touches of fall. Love those clothespins along with so many other wonderful vintage treasures.

    Hugs, Cindy

  22. Everything looks great! I love your scales! I'm so ready for Fall! You've inspired me!

  23. This is so fun to look at. I'm starting to love antiquing myself. I didn't realize there was such a thing as antique cow prints. Did they love cows in the past?

  24. Hi Linda,
    It looks great. I love all your finds you have gathered. Perfect for the hutch. I'm ready for a change also. Waiting for cooler weather and my Son's room, project to be complete! I tell you boys are the worst!! LOL.
    Have a great time at Junk Bonanza. Wish oneday I can join in on the fun.

  27. I can see you and I have very similar taste. I love everything in your cupboard. And, the handle on that old basket is gorgeous. I've made baskets before and that looks like it'd be really difficult to make.

  29. I adore that tarnished silver! Looks so pretty Linda.

  30. Hi Linda! So many neat things! I love how those dried hydrangeas pretty! Also, I just found a scale like that too, while shopping in Snohomish a few weeks ago. I'm still looking for something pretty to display on top. The clothes pins are always a favorite too. Have a nice weekend!

  31. i esp. love that engraved silverware and awesomely charming old bowl--such great patina on it, tfs, linda! happy weekend!

  32. You will have to tell me which area you will be in as I am flying in from Chicago to Junk Bonanza... woohooo! Last year was my first time and there was no way that I was going to not go this year. In fact, I am having a giveaway on my blog for a free early bird ticket and tote that I have created... that's how much I support this event! Your collections are lovely and it's always fun to poke around in someone else's! Thanks for sharing your space and I will be checking back in again!

  33. LOVE your collection of engraved silverware...I have a few pieces mixed in with my "stash"...hmmm...think I need to go sort those out :) Good luck getting ready for JB...can't wait!! Laurel
