Show and Tell--My Red Hutch

It's been several months since I've participated in Show and Tell. In fact, it's been so long I have almost forgotten the rules and guidelines! Maybe I had better let Kelli fill us in on the idea. Here's what she says over at There is No Place Like Home:

"Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Look around your home for something to share; dig through those boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and the story that goes with your special item."

Several weeks ago I went shopping in Franklin with a couple of friends. We had a great day! The main purpose of our trip was to find some treasures for my bedroom. I am in the process of making changes in there.

We found this great red hutch/cabinet. Both of my friends said, almost at the same time, "You have to have that!" After several hours of shopping and thinking about it, I had to agree with them. So, here it is--a new treasure at my house.

Yes, it will be in my bedroom. I'm not sure about everything that will be in the room. We did find a wonderful creamy white quilt and shams, a green/gold/cream patchwork throw, and a fantastic black iron bed. I didn't get the bed, but I will probably go back for it. This room is going to be different from anything I have ever had before. I'll be sure to share some pictures when I get it finished--If I can get pictures taken, downloaded, etc. :)

What treasure are you going to share with us today? Hurry on over to Kelli's and get in on the fun!

I'm off to "visit" some of ya'll! Have a great day!

The hutch is lovely and I am anxious to see your room. I like the deep colors of red and the black bed...sounds yummy to me!
Have a good weekend!

I do love the "bones" of that hutch, no matter what color it is! I'm sure the red will coordinate with your theme when you get your bedroom done.

I'm more the "free, hand-me-down, or yard sale" type gal myself, LOL! ;o)

Happy Weekend, Myrna!

Love and hugs,

That is beautiful, Myrna. I look forward to seeing the finished room and this beautiful hutch with "goodies" filling it.

I had gotten out of the habit of coming over here. So it is great to hear your voice again. You sound well, and happy to be back enjoying life with all those you love.

Your hutch is so beautiful. That would go perfectly in my house. But I'd have to put it out in the middle of the house where everyone could see it. So lovely. I can't wait to see what you will put in it.

And that Peggy Sue! Oh, my! What a cutie. She will keep Lila and Wooky on their paws when they get together.

Yummy colors for your room. I love the hutch. I have lots of red in my home.
Keep us posted on the room and it's progress.

I love the new hutch! Sounds like fun changing your bedroom drastically.

We're doing some stuff in the house - the kitchen especially. I'm not looking forward to the process, but definitely can't wait till it's finished!

The hutch is incredible! I hope you share your room when it's finished so we can all see the finished work :).

What a beautiful hutch! I can't wait to see your pictures when your room is finished. I'm trying to decide what direction to go with our bedroom... so I'm always on the look-out for ideas.

Thanks for coming over to visit today - I am thoroughly enjoying retirement, and can't imagine anything changing that! I am so glad you're having some fun in your life.

Yes, the twins are doing so well - and are so gorgeous.

And yes, pictures are just blog posts waiting to happen!

It sounds like the bedroom will be just stunning Myrna. The hutch will be a wonderful piece. I love all the things you've mentioned and look forward to seeing pictures of the finished product!
Have a blessed weekend!
