One of the details I love about my house is the built-in hutch in the dining room. It’s trimmed in curvy white wood, has two sliding glass doors, drawers & cupboards. Lots of storage space. The trim reminds me of the built-in bookcases that my grandparents had in their den and was one of the details that caught my eye when we were looking to buy the house.
I apologize for the picture quality. The lighting is not great and there’s a big game table currently parked partway in front of the hutch.
When my husband and I got married, we inherited a set of my grandmother’s china, and this is the first time in almost twenty years I’ve been able to display it.
The pattern is Dresdenia by Sango. I believe it was a set you could purchase back when the grocery stores sold sets of china.
I’ve accented here and there with some other favorite things. That little cowboy guy in the picture above is actually a toy depicting a distant relative of mine-Charles Goodnight. I found him at a shop on the mall in San Antonio. How many people have an action figure based on their family members?
A few of my glass cloches.
A mug commemorating my husband’s high school graduation and his baby silverware.
A few of my apple pieces.
And one last white item-the cake topper from my wedding.
Have a wonderful White Wednesday.
