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.


Kitchen hutch
Happy Friday! Today, I am sharing my kitchen hutch and set of china. Both were given to us my Phillip's mom and I love the hutch so much, when we get a new kitchen table set we will make sure it matches.

Your china is very pretty, and I love the details in the glass on your hutch doors.

I'm participating for the first time this week. I was excited that I was able to do a post that coincided with Friday and that it fit just right!

Linda said...

Love your china Kelli, the detail so pretty and the colors! Like that darker burgundy color in it.
I followed your lead and baked banana bread today, to loafs. My son and his fiance love it, so I can give most away.

I like the design of the glass doors in the hutch. What a wonderful gift this is. I'm glad you use your china a lot. I could never understand the purpose of having something like that and never using it.

Kelli,
I have Noritaki china as well. My set is called "Traviata" and I love it! There is something to be said about a beautifully set table with fine china! It can make the ordinary seem extraordinary. I love your hutch too! Have a great weekend!
God Bless,
Hillary

Your hutch is quite lovely; I really like the etched glass on the doors. Your china is lovely as well. I love all sorts of plates, cups, etc.

May you enjoy them for many years to come.

Thank you for sharing.

I love your china cabinet, and your china is lovely. I have Noritake china from my Mom as well. The design is just blue with a silver stripe around the edge, but it looks lovely at any time.

God bless.

Lovely hutch and the dishes are gorgeous, love Noritake!

Terri said...

This is not good. Now, I'm coveting your hutch and china! LOL

Adrienne said...

Hi, Kelli -
Yes, your hutch is gorgeous - and it would go with my table! I love your china. They are such a special treat because they were a gift from your family. I truly wish I had not jumped to say no many years ago when my dear mother offered me her wedding china - purchase in 1945! I was using different colors then and couldn't imagine I'd want to use it. Now I see bits and pieces of the pattern in shops and wish, oh how I wish, I had said yes! I know you enjoy yours every time you use it. Thanks for sharing it with us today.
