I've been doing a little fall clean up around here and have just changed up my hutch. I'm giving you a sneak peek of the result which I am showing in a later post, but first I want to show you what didn't make the cut.
It's all laying out on my table top on a freshly laid cloth while I figure out where it all goes from here. Sometimes things get a little worse before they get better!
Odds and ends that are all newly polished up. (If you do it before it gets too bad, it's a snap!) A new set of canape forks that I found recently at the flea market for five dollars is in the forefront. I like the contrast to the other curvy shapes. And they feel great in the hand. (I think I read that they are actually shrimp forks.)
This transferware vegetable dish with a lid is just coming into season and won't be put too far away.
I like bouquets of fat handled knives, don't you?
A stray nest nestles on a pile of plates that are all off the hutch for awhile. I have stopped collecting nests. (I love them, but I have enough!) They are tricky to store when they're not on display.
For the moment there are pitchers on parade.
A nicely covered table helps keep disorganized things a little more of a beautiful mess.
More of this to come later. . . .
But now I have to get back to work!
I'm so glad you came by!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend coming up!
