Christmas Decorating The Hutch

Hello my dear friends.  I hope today is a good day for you.
It is Sunday. . .And I love Sunday's.
I think we are very blessed to have a Sunday
Once a week.  For me it truly is a day of rest.
And of course a day of worship.
I just have a few finishing touches to do with my
Christmas Decorating.
I have been a little slow this year.  Oh, good grief,
I am slow every year!
One of the things I love to decorate for holidays,
And particularly Christmas, 
Is The Hutch.
I call this my Aunt Carol Hutch. . Why?
Because she had one just like it.
So when I found this at an antique shop a few years ago
I had to have it.
It is so fun to decorate for any holiday.
But of course, Christmas is the best to decorate for.
The little wooden box, is actually the a drawer from my
Grandma's Treadle Sewing Machine.
I like to use it to do arrangements in it.
I think it is a show stopper for sure.
The little singing angels, I have had Forever. . .Really.
They have been with me since I can remember.
For a long time I didn't use them in my decorating,
But now I do, they remind me of another time and place.
Of course Christmas plates adorn this hutch.
You know me,  I have lots of plates.
I could fill many "hutches" with plates.
I also have a lot of Salt and Pepper Shakers.  But, I didn't
Use them this year in most of my decorating.
My little Santa Tea-pot, never sees tea.  
Only hot chocolate. . .(I am a Mormon) No tea for me.
My next favorite to decorate is my living room shelf.
But, I will show you it next time.
Whew! I am so glad the decorating part is done.
I love to decorate, but Christmas totally stresses me out.
And this year it has seemed worse for me.
I hope you enjoyed part one of my decorations.
Please do come back. . .


  1. Hi Karie! Oh, you know how I love your hutch and it really is a cousin to mine. They look so much alike! I love how you made the pretty arrangement in the old sewing machine drawer. The plates look wonderful and I have a few of those Christmas plates from Walmart! Aren't they pretty? You do such a beautiful job decorating for any time!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. Karie, everything looks wonderful in your hutch. Don't feel bad about being so slow, I have finished my decorating and just a few things to fuss with. I didn't do as much as I normally do, I find it's just to much now that I'm olden. LOL I have tried to keep it pretty simple this year.
    Looking forward to seeing your next Christmas post. Have a wonderful week.

  3. So pretty! I love the festive touches of red and the angels are adorable. xoxo

  4. Adorable hutch & wall display! You have such darling things!

  5. Your hutch is lovely. I don't have a place for one, but I would love to be able to decorate one for Christmas and Valentines Day too.

    Happy Christmas
