I am such a sucker for vintage Early American maple furniture...

So nostalgic for me. Brings me back to when I was a kid.

I've been on a search for a small maple colonial style open hutch for quite some time. But most out there are gigantic and too over powering for our humble farmhouse. The smaller ones are hard to find. BUT I finally found a vintage Baumritter.

It tucked in that spot perfectly, too.

Yippee! I finally get to display my vintage Liberty Blue dishes.

Well hello there, General Washington.

Man, I would love to get my mitts on the Declaration of Independence turkey platter. Maybe someday.

That precious bald angel is one of my favorites! Not only do I consider Audrey (BayRay's Child a dear friend, she's also a favorite doll artist of mine. The gal can decorate, too!! Check out her blog.

Even though I put a lot of work into my dry sink, I decided to sell it on Craigslist. I made a promise to my sweet hubs... when a "new" piece of furniture comes in, one has to go out.

But knowing someone else will enjoy it much as I have makes me happy. A win-win for everyone!

Happy Friday, all!!

Stay warm!!

Oh no not this one, Judi. :> ) I paint over those dark 70's pine or walnut color stained pieces. Ooooh I love my maple finish. ♥
I must confess years back I painted a small maple tavern style table and I've regretted it ever since. Ack!

I agree, the color goes so nice with the rest of the furniture.

I have a whole smorgasbord of wood types and textures in that little dining room. ((hee-hee))

I love a good hutch or "Welsh dresser" as the Brits call them. If you can bag a corner one, even better! Your Liberty Blue collection is beautiful Karin. How long have you been collecting?

Thanks, ladies! ♥

Sweet Audrey, your decorating style is an inspiration to me and anyone who visits your blog! I treasure all your creations I have.

A "welsh dresser." I like that, Ali!
I have a small corner (painted) pine hutch in my living room. It holds all my vintage pewter. But I would love a maple one. My sweet hubs will have kittens if I bring home another hutch. I'll have to wait a bit to give him time to recuperate from this last one. ((giggle))

I found out about Liberty Blue (Bicentennial) dishes a few years ago. Heck, I had no idea they even existed. When I saw their Colonial America theme I knew I had to have them. I don't have a lot. Just 4 place settings. Would love all the wonderful extras. Maybe someday.
