~The Hutch Has Gone White~

Hello everyone, I hope you've had a great weekend. We've had another round of snow, some areas got as much as 8", I think we had right at 6". As I was finishing up this post, my driveway fairy came and cleaned out the lane, and around the shop area. What a keeper he is. :-))

Over the past few weeks I've admired the white ironstone going in all the hutch's. I decided to shop the house to see if I had enough to fill the dining room hutch. This first picture is a bit on the grainy side, but I wanted to show you the pear in the center cabinet. It has been there "forever". I've always liked seeing just the hint of yellow with all the green I had going on, until I pulled it all out and realized I like the finished project a lot more. Do you ever do that, like what you've done and once you change it you realized you were just stuck in a rut and needed to shake things up a bit?
This is how the shelf looked after I stripped the Christmas. Wow! Is it crazy full or what? Go ahead you can say it, it's OVER full!!! I guess this is where I tell myself just because I make displays like this in the shop, I don't have to do displays like this in my home. Sometimes less is more. :-))
A shot of the plates and sherbet glasses, that have been there , "forever"!!!
I'll hush for a bit and let you look at the hutch as it sits now.

I'm pleased as punch with the way the hutch turned out. I'm not sure about the green pears, they'll stay for now until; I can come up with a bit more white ironstone pieces. I'm looking forward to reading your comments on the transformation. Until next time.....
