In my quest for decluttering my home and preparing for an upcoming
antique show, I reworked my kitchen hutch the other day trying to find
things to sell while doing some decluttering in the process.
I know, you are looking at this and saying...that is decluttered? Well, yes
it is my friends! I took two whole boxes of STUFF from that crazy cabinet!
The appliances on the bottom shelf can now be accessed without having to
move everything to get at them, my cupcake collection is now on one shelf
and the top shelf has dishes that I can easily use without moving STUFF!
The top shelf houses pretty vintage dishes and a tole tray was added
to the back for abit of pretty eye candy. I love tole trays, but I have
since removed them from my walls (trying to declutter you know!) and
they are sitting in a box downstairs waiting to be used again someday.
This pretty fabric is actually a valance from a vintage twin
bedroom set and it adds a little bit of "pretty" to the top.
Some of my cute vintage dishes including an old English pitcher,
a pretty teacup and a lovely Limoges covered butter dish.

Every cabinet needs a little bling! This pretty tiara was given to me
by my friend Paula who came over at 2:00 a.m. last Friday to watch
the Royal Wedding with me! Isn't she nice! The other little pieces
are vintage collar pins from long ago.
This adorable petite teapot was purchased from my friend Chris
over at Tutti Chic many years ago. I still love it!
The middle row houses my cupcake collection that I make
and sell on my web site and in my Etsy shoppe.

You really can have your cake and eat it too!
This sweet antique card was given to me by my friend Paula (there she
goes again, she gives me the best stuff!) and I couldn't resist adding
it to this vignette. I just love the look on her face!
The bottom shelf holds my pink appliances. I used to have my mixer and
crock pot on my kitchen counter. So glad to have them cleared off of there.
I must admit that I don't use my Kitchenaid all that much, but it sure looks
cute sitting there! The tiered cake that you see is from an Etsy seller
named "Frippelous". She has really adorable stuff!
I love my pink chopper and my crock pot and use them all of the time including
yesterday when I whipped up a big batch of homemade soup. Yum!
Another view of the bottom half. This cabinet is actually a newer one that I
have had for about 10 years or so. I went to a shoe store, of all places, that
was closing down and they had shoes displayed on it. I asked them if they
would be willing to sell it and they said yes! I'm so glad I bought it ~ I love it!
I hope you have enjoyed having a peek at my kitchen hutch and
I wish you all a very lovely day. Thanks for stopping by!
