Show and Tell Friday!
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.
Earlier this week I shared pictures of the canisters on my kitchen hutch. Today I'm going to show you the entire hutch.
A bought it used a few years ago, gave it a fresh coat of paint and added new knobs.
I actually like to call it my "pie safe" since Phillip took out the glass doors and replaced them with screen.
A couple of days ago I added some hooks to make more room for my teacups.
Everything was found at a resale store, yard sale or was a gift.
I put all of my summer dishes on the bottom shelf.
Along with my tea tray. Thank you for taking a look at my kitchen hutch!

It is all beautiful -- the cups, the hutch itself, the doilies!
Your hutch is lovely, and the new knobs are nice a great touch.
I love all your porcelain things.
Don't you wish you could use these
lovely things more often? Entertaining is so much more casual
than years ago. I luv the idea of
actully using the "Good" china.
You could host a wonderful tea with all your fancies.
Have a nice week Kelli!

Very nice hutch and I notice that you also have cups and plates for a whole army (that's what Mr. Gattino always says to me, lol !)

Your whole house is sooooooo, 'country'. And I love it. I especially love the color...yellow. It's sunshiney...and warm, and so inviting. Love the white furniture accent too. It's all just super Kelli!
My show n tell is about on little project I did this week.
The hutch is beautiful. The paint color goes great with all the colors of the different dishes and teacups that you own.
Thank you for sharing. Your pictures are always so inspiring.
I just love your "pie safe". I love to find things and fix them up. I've got posts on my blog under the refurnishings catagory that I've fixed up. I love all your tea cups. It looks so summery and cheery. Thanks for sharing.
I love you hutch and you tea cups! I love sweet little tea cups. I have wanted to participate in your show and tell for quite some time, and today I finally did!
I love your summer dishes!!
Your cabinet is very pretty. I love all your great finds. You're a good bargain hunter and your treasures reflect that.
You have done a wonderful job with your pie safe and your lovely dishes. Having them beautifully displayed in that way guarantees you will use and enjoy them with your family and friends. It is so good to be thankful and appreciative of the things we have been blessed with and to create beauty everyday. You are a pro at that! :-) Have a great weekend and thanks for the show and tell.
Very nice, I love your cute little tea tray and the pastel cups with the gold rim, very pretty.
I saw your post about the cannister set. My friend who is moving to Arizona soon has asked if I would like a set she has on top of her cabinets. Of course I said yes. I'll share them when I have them.
I like the hooks. I might do that to my hutch. And the lace edging. I'd like to know more about that. I also like the way you've got your tea tray ready.
Thanks for sharing.
Hi Kelli, How did you line your shelves? Is that fabric with lace? I don't think your pies are very safe in there with your family around! (grins)
That's really pretty! It is inviting us into your kitchen to have a cup of tea and a nice chat! I like how you put the cup hooks inside of it!
You love the same colors and "stuff" that I do!
Just passing by that hutch would make me smile each day.
I just love all the pretty dishes that are in your hutch you really do have a flare for making things look neat and pretty. I just love your website, I look forward to seeing what you have for your readers each and every day.
Thanks for sharing your hutch. I love your decorating ideas! Thanks for hosting too... I am so excited I can join in this week!
All of them!
Very lovely! My favorite dishes are the little red ones - do they have apples on them? Perfect for summer!
What a great hutch. Your dishes are so pretty, too. Thanks for the show and tell. It's so fun to see other's treasures. Julie
so lovely Kelli! Can I come for tea?
wow! what a great homey-hutch! Happy weekend! mine's up too.
What a great hutch! I esp. love the cups and filigree saucers in the top left. The gingham/fruit dishes are adorable too.
A hutch is one of my favorite pieces of furniture. I know I love mine. It is amazing how much stuff you can get in them! Yours is lovely.
I sure hope I did it right:) It was fun to do and I'll be looking forward to doing more! BTW I love your summer dishes!
I auto-posted at 4 a.m. this morning but just couldn't stay up that late to comment. Can we comment early if we auto-post. Just wondered. Love this weekly opportunity to share fun things. Have a great week. Great hutch and beautiful things to fill it.
I have a Hooser buried in the garage that is my project for the fall.
Unfortunately, I am unable to participate today, because I seem to have lost my memory card. I luvs show and tell Friday, thought.
By the way, I made tomato and mozarella salad, and it was delish.
Kelli, Your hutch is just precious! I love the glass knobs...and the contents are amazing! My favorite was the magnolia china pieces!
Hope you have a great weekend! ~Rhonda
As usual, absolutely beautiful, Kelli! I need to find one like it. Guess that would mean I would need to go garage-saling or thrift-store shopping, though. :-)
your collection is beautiful!
i only have one photo for today's Show and Tell... don't have much time. sometimes there are downsides in being a working mom. :-)
I love your hutch! It is so beautiful! You really have decorated it so beautifully!! :)
It is so lovely--I keep hoping I can find something like that---I found one, but they wanted 450.00 for it---too much for me---
I remember when you added the lace to the edge, so lovely:)
All your delicate dishes are so lovely! I did not do Show and Tell this week, too much going on with the Dentist, I fear I wouldn't be able to visit everyone.
Wow Kelli! That is so beautiful! I've seen some cafe's and tea houses with similar hutches in them, and always thought they were so pretty.
I like the red and white dishes!
Thanks for hosting! I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Love your hutch with all the pretties and collectibles.
Your hutch is beautiful. I really like how you are able to display so many pretty pieces at one time.
Your kitchen hutch is very pretty Kelli. I didn't participate this week, but thought I'd stop by. Kathi
oh Kelli, you're completely ready with all these for summer entertaining in style :)
Kelli - I had to relink to Mr. Linky...I don't know...having problems...would you please remove the first one. Maybe that will solve the problem. Thanks...sorry for the inconvenience.
I found your blog last night and just really enjoyed the visit and thought I would join in on the fun. I love the hutch and your beautiful collections!
I am running late this week with all my participating posts, but happy to join in again.
Hi Kelli! It's clear you're ready for summer with your pretty tableware. Thanks again for hosting this great Show & Tell.
It is all so beautiful, Kelli. So very "Kelli". The red is so cheerful.
Kelli, your hutch is so pretty, as is everything you have in it.
Cozy and homey are words that come readily to mind! :-)
I am enjoying everyone's blogs so much...I am early this week for my contribution..(busy week ahead)...again thanks for all the wonderful posts! ( Your cupboard/dishes are wonderful!!!)
thanks again! cindy B
Your hutch is just beautiful. I love your summer dishes.
Your hutch and teacups and such are adorable. What a great idea to put screening there instead of the glass!
Kelli, I love your china collection, especially the magnolia set. They are very beautiful. I, too, have a terrible weakness for vintage china and linens.
That is so pretty - such lovely things on/in it - and SO tidy! You certainly have the knack with displaying things.
I love your hutch and all the pretties..
You have such a beautiful blog! I love hunting for various goodies too!
Your hutch looks abundant and beautiful! :)
I'm totally drooling right now...LOL I don't have a hutch, so my tea collection is spread over my whole livingroom/kitchen area...soon I imagine it will spread to my bedroom, maybe the kids' rooms, the car? I don't know...I think I need a 12 step program for tea lovers. LOL
Kelli, I love the kitchen hutch! You have decorated it so beautifully. I also like the red & white bowls and dinner plates, the ones with the apples on them. They are cute!
Beautiful Hutch! Thanks for sharing.
