But have no worries I’m just moving all blogging back to Hey What’s for Dinner Mom? I started this site as a place to share non-food ideas and posts, what it actually did was divide my time and attention between two sites and I eventually became overwhelmed and unproductive. I can’t split my interested so entirely that I just give up. So EVERYTHING you like about this site will be moving back to Hey What’s for Dinner Mom, thrifter share, crafting ideas, DIY posts, giveaways ALL of it hosted over there. So I do hope you’ll all come, and link up back in back in the blog-homeland. Please?
I wanted to have new thrifted things this week but the thrifts and sales just weren’t having it, at all. I tried, I dug, I looked, I planned (and failed) to go to a huge garage sale and well I found nothing worth a hoot. The I realized my house is full of lovely things I HAVE thrifted so why not look at those? Yes??
I changed the decor on my hutch this week because jadeite and pink are so much more summery and now that it’s actually fall I realized it was time to trot out more seasonally appropriate colors. Like Flame from Le Creuset and Descoware, it doesn’t get anymore fall for me than hot orange.
I’ve done Flame before, I love it, I could have it displayed every day of the year and never tire of it. Yes, there’s a but coming, but I wanted to add in non-Flame pieces and really showcase some more vintage goodies. Every single piece on this hutch was thrifted in some way, either it was gifted to me (and bought second hand) or I bought it second hand or I won it or a gift certificate and purchased it(essentially free to me!).
The base layer of the hutch has a DescoWare French Oven on the right, that was an Estate Sale purchase, I don’t remember the price but it was below the 20 dollar range. The Le Creuset Trivet I bought with winnings from a cooking contest, I won a 500 dollar gift certificate to William and Sonoma and bought a set of Le Creuset cookware with it, best use of 500 dollars EVER. And the oven mitts were an Estate Sale find this summer and the orange pot on the left is what I believe to be is an insert for a double boiler, its unmarked.
The middle shelf holds a little unmarked Orange teapot from and Estate Sale, a squirrel tea light holder, mushroom salt and pepper shakers, and a DescoWare Bean Pot. I really need to use the bean pot and get comfortable using it, anybody use one?
Top row has a possible Dorothy Thorpe compote dish from the local thrift store all the way on the right, DescoWare divided baking dish and Pyrex salt and pepper shakers to the left. The canisters on top I won from Van over at Thrift Core, I love them and they pretty much live there all year round. The hutch itself is second or third hand, I bought it for 100 bucks from a dear friend and almost ruined it with a disastrous run with milk paint, NEVER AGAIN.
There you have it, I think everything on the hutch including the hutch was had for under 150 dollars, thrifted price that is. I hope hope hope H O P E you will all come and link up over at Hey What’s for Dinner Mom next week, I will of course put up a link to send all linkers over there, maybe you too?
