Fun, fun, fun!
I met my hunny bunny Rhonda over at one of my favorite antique shops in Chandler called Merchant Square and we had the best time. In fact look at what I got…
…eek! This is it in the store, I didn't get all the dishes. Jeff and Eric came and picked it up and Rhonda and I continued to shop. Gotta love my men. I paid the guys with a Chicago dog and a pop.
A few years ago I had found this hutch.
I think it was twice as much as I spent on mine today…but I didn't know they had layaway and when I finally found out the hutch was long gone, so I was sad as I really liked it, but I love the one I got way better so it was fate.
When I got home we moved the red shelf out and set up my new hutch, then I started decorating.
What do you think? It has so much storage that I don't even have stuff in all the drawers or cupboards yet. In fact I took out my little black jewelry box stand that I had in here and actually will use it in my bedroom for jewelry…ha! I moved the spinner rack to the other side and I have to figure out where to hang my clock.
Rhonda's sweet Mum gave me a couple doilies that were her Mum's and this one was perfect on the top.
Really my friends, I won't lie…this is the other side of the room…ha! See I don't keep any secrets from ya…ha! This needs to get tidyied up. Thank goodness I don't have any classes till next weekend. Yikes! They won't know how bad it looked…shhh….don't tell.
I got this cute little red clock.
Rhonda spotted this for me, I wanted another one. It is actually an old receipt holder, they are hard to find cause they are probably dangerous if you think about it. What I use it for is when I am cutting ribbon, I put it on the spike and then the spool just spins and I don't get the ribbon all tangled.
This paper towel holder screamed clucked to be taken home…I love it.
So wasn't that a fun day? Hard to believe this year is almost over eh?
Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping in.

Okay….so now I know it is not your red hutch painted!!!!! It is very nice. What are you going to do with your red hutch??

Hey Di, I haven't commented in a while,but I loooove the hutch and the clock. I really like the receipt holder too. I hope to find one but I am still looking for a flower frog too. Clinton, Tn has a large antique district and I need to go back there. I did, however, luck up on a hutch at an estate sale a few years back. It is a beautiful hard, curly maple in near mint condition and it was $150. My dad did hobby woodworking and with his influence, I cannot bring myself to paint it. Yours is adorable and you have decorated it wonderfully. I enjoy your antiquing trips and wish I was along. I enjoy your posts. Kathryn
