***********WELL...excuse the h** out of me but I made a HUGE blunder here...
Even tho I am sure SHERRY would LOVE this pretty red hutch, it actually belongs to our RHONDI over at ROSE COLORED GLASSES...
now, since this is my FIRST mistake, ever...I am totally unsure as to how it happened. One thing that comes to mind is A SENIOR MOMENT....and this is as good an excuse as I can come up with. In fact, I find myself using this very excuse for a LOT of things lately.......
HEY..... how come MY blue and white didn't look anywhere near THIS good ? What is the secret?? OOO...I see it....RED in the background !!!
Now most of you might realize that I AM SUCH A COPY CAT...
I spend half my time stalking my favorite blogs....
the other half going for favorite LOOKS...
Sooooo....having a stash of RED fabric, I got out my trusty measuring tape, thumb tacks and RED paint...
****RED paint to cover those white thumb tacks !!
Being the deprived soul that I am...I haven't a pretty ROOSTER lamp to put in this spot....YET !!
This one with the little butterfly painted on it will have to do for now....
That little blue and white bell was found by Mr. Sweet at a flea market...he thought it matched my vintage, blue and white dishes and.....he was right.!
There...that photo on your left...white backing...looks so washed out now.
How come no one told me how much better it would look RED ??
How did SHERRY know....and I didn't ??? ...am I slow..or what?
h**...THE reason SHERRY didn't know is 'cause IT'S NOT HER HUTCH, I tell you!!
in the meantime, while I have much more important things to do like...taking DEEDS fishing,
going to that zoo in that other town before winter sets in and they close it for the season...
hunting for a bright red bike that, next summer, the grand girls and I can RIDE....
IN THE MEANTIME...I'll just leave this red fabric in place....even tho it looks a little like BRICK from a distance...it's really not !! :O)
*** I am just in awe at how much more these dishes POP against that RED.....
SHERRY knew....I didn't....now...I do !! HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY....
*************IT'S NOT HER HUTCH !!!
Oh, yes...and I need a LARGER rooster and a rooster lamp, like SHERRY'S...
(I might be beginning to sound ungrateful for what I DO have...believe me, I am not!!)
(It's just that my middle name is WANT and I can't do anything about it !!)
********AND BESIDES ALL THAT...I REALLY WANT A LAMP AND ROOSTER LIKE RHONDI'S !!!
A cuter lamp, a larger rooster, a few hearts and....
I'M GOOD TO GO !!
thanks to you, Sherry, AKA RHONDI, for your great inspiration !
if you are mad at me for copying you...come on over here and knock me down...then we can sit down, have a cup of tea (I'll even let ya have your tea in that pretty teacup I won from you!!) AWWW, OK, RHONDI, you can have tea, too !!
and then we can
ADMIRE OUR RED HUTCHES......together !! (meaning RHONDI and me..don't even know if Sherry even HAS a red hutch!!)
