Check Mark!

who knew that my hutch would be so much fun to decorate and I change it a lot. Here is its look for winter with my new Royal Stafford checked plates and Fitz and Floyd snowman plates!

I hand painted the pitcher at a local pottery place. And the checked spoon is a bookmark that I made from an old flattened spoon, hand painted and bowed.
So that's another check mark off my list for 2012!

  2. Happy New Year, Terry! Love the hutch!! The checkerboard pattern just 'pops'! You did a great job on the handpainted pieces, as well! I love it!

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE your hutch. The plates and the snowman look wonderful together (I am a snowman fan).

  4. Adore the hutch...the black and white is such an attention grabber. Love it.

  5. I agree the black and white is an attention grabber! Looks just wonderful! Love those snowmen too!

  6. You know I love this!! I have a few of those dishes and have been on the hunt for more (did you buy them recently at Marshall's/Home Goods?) I need 3 more!! Did you see a similar display at Decorate My World with Color blog - the Xmas post about her Mom's dining area?

  7. Happy New Year! I am also addicted to the black and white check of McKenzie Childs. Love your site!

  8. Looks beautiful Terry. I love the plates and the colors.


  9. Looks fantastic!! Love the color of your walls too!


  10. Your hutch is absolutely stunning ... as a matter of fact, the entire vignette is gorgeous! Love that floral chair and I spotted your Bose. I'm a big fan of mine!

  11. I don't think u can ever go wrong with Black-n-White! I also checked out ur little friend on 'love Affair'...I know the bible tells us not to covet they neighbors 'friends'...but I can't help myself...Happy New Year!

  12. Fun--some great elements in there!

  13. HOw cute! Love those plates! I hope that your 2012 is off to a great start! Happy Saturday!...hugs...Debbie

  14. Love the checkerboard, Terry! What a great pop of color they add to the hutch. Hmm . . . I gotta find me a checkerboard stencil, heehee.

  15. Very cute, I love all the black and white! Thanks for visiting, I'm now a follower!

  16. Super eye-catching and festive! andrea@townandprairie

  17. So pretty, the black and white checkerboard plates are such an "eye" catcher! Love you hutch, love the chair, love the rooster, I just love everything. Your wall color looks so similar to mine, yet yours doesn't come out neony like mine. Is there a lot of windows in this room? Just curious, I'm actually thinking of changing my color because it doesn't show well, but I still love the color. Thanks again for sharing your creativeness with Sunday's Best!

  18. Hi Terry! I love all the painted projects you've done. I don't think there is anything you can't do! Have you ever done a post on how you've made some of these projects? Love, love, love your decorating style! Also thanks for linking up! Have a great weekend!
