A 10 minute job….

I finally did it!


I cleaned out the hutch.


I cut every piece of paper. Applied the poster tape. And stuck it up.


I reloaded my dishes (you know, Mary, I really need to go shopping with you. I don’t have many pretty dishes at all!).


Job accomplished! (I’ll polish the silver another day…..maybe…..I like it tarnished) 🙂

Have a Great Weekend! ((hugs)) Rosie

p.s. I will do this again. I now have a reason to go in the paper aisles!

  22. Oh, and I meant to say that I love that your pattern matches on ea piece…..you being the seamstress that you are, thought of that, first thing, I am sure. I, on the other hand, wouldn’t have thought to keep every thing straight and in line until I had finished and looked at it and thought….”somethings not right here!” 🙂

  23. Hi Rosie 🙂

    I have something for you over at my blog.

  38. It looks wonderful Rosie! I love the color and size of your china cabinet. The paper makes the dishes stand out so nicely.

    I’m glad that you are enjoying the trip I made recently to lower Manhattan that I’ve blogged about in my last few posts. There is so much wonderful history there to learn about. By blogging about the area I’ve been researching it all and enjoying it even more!

    Hugs, Pat
