Did you enjoy my year of mantels from yesterday? Well today I'll share my china hutch for the past year.
We will start off with my winter hutch.
I just started decorating strictly for winter in the past couple of years. It's a great transition from Christmas when it is still too early to decorate for Valentine's Day.
Speaking of Valentine's Day....
Here is my "Love & Cherubs" hutch.
In March you have to decorate for St Patrick's Day. Especially if you have Irish blood in your veins.
I'm feeling a wee bit Irish.
Then April rolled around and we all know that Easter is coming. But it came late in the month this year. Which gave me plenty of time to get ready.
Welcome to my Easter parade.
For the month of May and June my hutch was more neutral. With birdhouses and birds.
I called this one "The Birds". Luckily these birds don't attack like in that Hitchcock film from the 60's. That one still scares me.
In the middle of June I decided to get patriotic.
My "Red, White and Blue" hutch.
Seems by the time I decorated for Summer, it is more than half over. That is why I left it up for all of August and all of September.
School starts here in August, so I couldn't decide if I should decorate for "School or Summer". Looks like Summer won. But then, thinking of school gives me a stomach ache. So it wasn't a hard decision.
Next came October and Halloween.
And my "Trick or Treat" hutch. I usually start decorating for Halloween in September. But I didn't start until a week or so before Halloween. I really need to stop procrastinating.
Next came November and Thanksgiving. Each year I keep thinking that I'll go straight from Halloween decorating straight to Christmas. But I just love, love, love Thanksgiving.
"Be Thankful I still decorate for Thanksgiving".
And finally we have reached December.
I was so original in naming this hutch. I called it.......Are you ready?.........Are you sure?....
My "Christmas hutch". Aren't you amazed I can think up such fabulous titles?
I don't know what is up with me. I can't seem to get out of my funk. I thought for sure by Christmas I would get into the Christmas spirit. But no!
I did finally get a Christmas tree up. If you can call it that.
I just ran out of time to decorate it.
My family thought it was pretty funny.
The best part is that I don't have to take down a tree this year. More time to shop.
