The hutch is a gift from my husband. He had it custom made to fit a wall. It is made from sassafras wood which I think is unusual. My favorite pattern of dishes is Blue Willow. I have been collecting them for 20 years and have new place settings, old place settings, cheap ones, and dishes that are more expensive. I currently have the Blue Willow on my hutch but it just doesn't do it. I decided that I am going to put odd patterns of China on my hutch for a change. This afternoon I started to take the Blue Willow pattern dishes off the hutch and wash them before I put them away. I just started this chore and we got company. It was friends that we hadn't seen for awhile. They left and we went to the super market for groceries (we drive 23 miles one way). After we got home, I put away the groceries and then I cooked supper. By the time supper was over and the dishes were in the dishwasher, I decided that I would finish changing my display sometime this week. I work at the office tomorrow, am sorting through things for the Historical Society's auction on Tuesday and auction day is Wednesday. Maybe I can buy some more odd pieces of China for my hutch at the auction. I figure that by Thursday, I should be able to finish the job.
I decided that I would take a picture of the hutch even though some of the dishes aren't on it. Maybe some one has some ideas to give it some pizazz.
