hand me down hutch

Sometimes, procrastination is good. My decor is minimalist by most accounts, and I'm ok with that. I prefer to buy things used, they're more interesting! I only want to have things I love and finding those things takes time.

Recently, my husband's grandparents downsized and his parents moved to a new home. In the process I've inherited a windfall of exciting hand me downs!

One of my favorites is this hutch...

It gives me much needed storage space and allows me to display things that are too pretty to be hidden away in cabinets.

The antique packages on the top are from my husband's grandmother's kitchen. I've also inherited two complete tea sets and a random collection of pretty dishes.

Now I can serve an elegant tea, and give my baked goods the presentation they deserve! That pink plate on the bottom shelf is begging for a batch of lemon bars ;)
