Totally missing springtime indoors with all the work we were doing helping my mother-in-law move-in, and then spending a lot of time out-of-doors moving the fence, digging, planting, and tilling, I am excited to share a second post from inside…
Yesterday we shared this month’s Pinterest Challenge spring baskets and I thought about sharing this photograph… But then I thought, no, I wanted to save it for today. A different view than what was shared in that post and a view I really love!
Down on the hutch top, I’ve placed the new-to-me Limoges creamer and sugar bowl. Such a lovely gift!!! I literally gasped when I pulled the sugar bowl out of its newspaper wrapping.
These were found at the IOOF thrift shop in Latrobe, California ~ a monthly event open to the public when the lodge members host their monthly fundraiser breakfasts. This is the lodge my mother-in-law and sister-in-law have attended for years and years. Gini now attends ours here in North Texas. 🙂
This cupboard only gets an update every couple of months or so as the seasons or holidays change, but I do enjoy “playing house” with it! The new creamer and sugar inspired putting up all the pretty Limoges pieces ~ like the small dessert plate (above right) with its ruffled and gilded edges. Love the pink roses strewn around the inner border!
Favorite vintage cards add their bit of pretty along with lovely mercury glass baubles plus one sweet springtime rabbit…
He’s a little salt and pepper shaker!
Besides the Limoges, the theme here is sugar bowls. I think I put four in the hutch this time.
I have been looking for a larger china cabinet, because we really could use some more storage, but I will never sell this one. I love how it was made around this vintage picture frame! It will go into the craft room and house fabric and things if I do ever find another one.
Really pleased with this springtime hutch’s look! What do you think?
Happy spring to you,
