My Fall Hutch

I finally got around to removing my summer decorations from the hutch.  I loved them so much, I could hardly bare to pack them away until next summer.  But ~ fall is here ~ and it was time to move on.
 I'll start with some fall dishes I found last summer at a yard sale.  I think the whole set was only $12.50 and they are just perfect for this time of year.
Then I found these sweet little ramekins at Goodwill that match almost perfectly.
Taking center stage on the hutch is this beautiful turkey platter that I found at a thrift store for only $10.  It has a lady's signature on the front, so I think it was made by this very talented lady.
These next items were found at the September Springfield Flea Extravaganza.  They are pieces of pottery from the early 1800's that were dug up at the Victorian Dump in England and brought back here to sell.  The vendor had dozens of pieces of pottery that he had personally dug up, wrapped in newspaper (dirt and all), brought to the states, and then cleaned up for resale.  Pits and pieces of long ago, each one beautiful and oozing history.  This first piece is a ginger beer container.  I love the cracks on the side and it's earthy warm colors.
The next few pictures are lids with no bottoms, but each has its own personality and unique beauty.
Then off in a corner of the hutch is my lovely fall pitcher and mini pumpkin snuggled in an abandoned bird nest.
On the top shelf is my trio of clay pumpkins on a tiny bale of hay sporting happy Halloween smiles.
A few weeks ago, my brother installed my favorite chandelier over the dining room table.  It previously was just hanging on the screened porch, but it was far to pretty to hang outside where it is not seen or used during the winter.  Now I can enjoy it year round and it gives me so much more light than my previous light fixture.
All in all ~ I think I've got it covered for fall, Halloween, 
and Thanksgiving.

Love it! Wish I could find outstanding bargains at the thrift store like those dishes....but, I rarely venture in. Guess maybe I should shop there more often!

What a pretty display! I pretty much skipped fall decorating this year. I had the day off from school yesterday because of Sandy and got out my turkey collection for Thanksgiving. Since I have a small turkey platter collection, your turkey platter immediately caught my eye.

Love the way you rearranged your hutch for the fall! It's a delight to the eye! That lovely set of dishes you got for a bargain is amazing. Talk about being at the right place at the right time! Lucky you! The little ramekins are so cute. That turkey platter is gorgeous and just right for Thanksgiving and Christmas decor. I must look up the Victorian Dump in England. What beautiful pieces you were able to acquire! I have never heard of that place. I love Victorian things!

The colors here are all so yummy! Love it all against the white. Isn't it fun to look at something entirely new when you redo your hutch? You're right. I do have a huge walk-in closet for linens, but they are also in piles all over the place. Dishes too. I wouldn't dream of posting about it! Haha!

Your hutch is so homey and beautiful with all of the fall touches. I love that piece that looks like a little iron fence and all of the old pieces of pottery.
