Organizing a Hutch

When you are trapped in the house for
days on end due to snow...

There is only one thing to do...



Clean and Organize!

I took everything out of the hutch and
organized the dishes. I made a pile for Goodwill 
and a pile for my daughter.

The inside of my hutch is painted a chippy green
so the white ironstone really pops.

The library card catalog is from my 
grandfather's workshop. 

He had it filled with tools, I have it filled with candles.

This hutch is a giant vintage reproduction hutch 
made of mahogany and weighs a ton!

I added some pretties to the top, the wood ceiling is very high...

Here is what was going on outside a couple of weeks ago...
now you know why we were trapped in the house :)


Happily yesterday was 65 degrees and sunny....
could Spring really be on the way?!

  8. Been organizing around here as well. Also made spring wreaths to hang outside (amidst yesterday's 8" of snow!) Your hutch looks awesome. Oh, reorganizing? It's the term used when we are between projects! Blessings, Susan. Deedy from HomeandHarvest
