Cindy from My Romantic Home is hosting Our Favorite Things.
The hutch itself was purchased while we lived in Germany. It is part of a set that includes a sideboard and a gorgeous table and 6 chairs. I searched for three years in numerous flea markets, bazaars and antique shops before coming home one Saturday and announcing to Mr. Decor, “The search is over, I have found the object of our desire.” (Don’t you love the “our desire” part?) His heartwarming response was “How much?” I then said, “Well, you know how I have been looking for 3 YEARS, and we are soon set to move back to the U.S. where I just know we would pay three times what they are asking.” His reply, “How much?” To which I said, “May I add that you will not have to buy me a birthday, anniversary, Valentine, Mother’s Day or get out of the doghouse gift for five years.” Being the smart man that he is, Mr. Decor picked up his wallet and keys and came home loving the set as much as I did.
The items filling the hutch are favorites too. I collected each piece of English transferware one by one. Transferware is available in blue (which is the most popular) green, brown, red (also known as pink) and a combination of the colors.
