Color me Pink!

I love decorating my hutch. We've had this hutch and dining room set for over 30 years. The hutch becomes a canvas to change for every season.

The pink dishes and glassware came out for Spring.







Every piece of china was acquired at Goodwill or thrifting. The Teapot however, I found at Cracker Barrel a couple of years ago. Now tell me, how could I pass this up??

I love the look of my Pink dishes and glassware. But now it's time to transform this hutch with my Blue dishes for Summer.

Oh Jocelyn, I am simply swooning over your pink transferware! What a beautiful collection you have, and pink depression glass too! A girl after my own heart...Your blue will look stunning too, I'm sure. Love the teapot! There is no way I would have passed it by either. Lovely post, and thank you for sharing with us. Have a lovely week.

Love your pink dishes in your hutch -- I think they're summery as well as springy. Nice to see someone having the same furniture for 30 years! But when you buy good it does last and it's a classic style.

Love your pink dishes and glassware. I just bought two pink transferware plates and they have Blarney Castle on them. I can't wait to see your blue.

Your hutch is just lovely with all your Pink! You snuck some fiesta in (one of my favorites because of all the colors). Great teapot. Happy Tea Day!
