China Closet Makeover for Thanksgiving

China Closet Makeover
     Slowly putting away the Halloween decor and pulling out the fall/Thanksgiving decor. Phew! Are we crazy or what?  Lol
    Anyway, I though that I would give my china hutch a makeover. I have never changed out the dishes in it since we had bought it. I know...that is CRAZY!!!  As I was growing up at home, I always remembered my Mom having her good china in hers and often wondered why they were in there. I don't remember every eating off of the fine china, so I guess I followed in the same suit except we do eat off of ours on a regular bases! Let me just say.....what a chore it was. I never knew that I had that many dishes, stemware in one place! Every time that I got something nice, it got put in the hutch. Now I know ladies, you don't do that!!
    So, I would like to show you my NEW decorating spot!! It is already for Thanksgiving.

I have use my Woodland collection from Spode....Turkey!!

The Red Stemware is by Cristal d'Arques. The white plate came from England.

The Red Stemware is Morgantown Ruby Golf Ball and the Amber glass came from Pier 1

The animal stemware came from Pier 1 ( I have this thing with stemware and I don't know why????......
The white soup bowls with the lion head handles came from The Christmas Store.

This lovely coffee pot server was purchased off of ebay and I am not sure the name/brand. Does anyone have a clue????

I hope ya'll enjoyed my little make over. I think I have found a new spot to redecorate on a regular bases, don't you think?

I will be posting on:

Keep Inspiring!!!

Love your turkey transferware and your china cabinet makeover. Yes, it is a ton of work to change this stuff around. Sometimes I do think we are crazy. Love your turkey pattern. Funny how we both featured turkey transferware this week.

Good for you, for taking on this chore! Now that you've got it behind you, it'll be a joy to do it each season. It's like a sandbox to me, to get to play with my dishes and re-arrange them. Your turkey plates are beautiful!
