I even gave one of the hutches a “Makeover”……. I decided to display my “Christmastime” china set by Nikko…..this set is over twenty-five years old and I love it…..it brings back many memories from when my three girls were little…..we would use them many times during Christmas Advent……

    Visiting from BNOTP.

  2. Wow, that paint made such a huge difference!! So much lighter and brighter!!! Love it!! Love the china in the cupboard for the holidays and the shades on the chandy ……….nice job!!! Can’t wait to see the hutch fixed up………

    • Thank you! I’m so loving the change…..and tomorrow I’ll share what I’ve put in the hutch…..its things that I love…..that have meaning to us…..my grandson helped build it so he signed the back along with my husband and dated it…one day I’ll pass it along to him…..
      Have a wonderful day!

  3. Wow, your dining room looks so festive – very pretty! You caught my eye over at the Metamorphosis Monday Party.

  4. Your dining room is beautiful, Lois! I love that shade of gray, it just looks so crisp with all the white and the reds. Your Christmastime china is perfect in the cabinet, right down to the little white picket fences corralling the Christmas trees. And what an amazing piece of furniture your husband gave you! I’ll look forward to seeing what goes in that!

    What a wonderful room for your family and friends to spend Christmas in! Great job!

    • Thank you Dewena! I just love it too……the best part is we stuck to our budget…….and it helps to have a husband is so talented…….I can’t wait to share it all with friends & family on Christmas Eve!
      Have a wonderful day……

  5. Your husband , the builder did a beautiful job on your hutch. It looks like it belongs in Williamsburg. I’ll bet he was happy to go back to his work site today.
    The color change in the dining room adds a real elegance to the room. You need no other decorations.

    Oh to have a dining room that beautiful. I also collect that same China, would not be Christmas without it. Lucky you to have such a talented husband and grandson. What a treasure!

    • Thank you Melinda…..I am thankful every day……please come back and visit! We’re gearing up for Christmas at Pineridge Hills!


  7. Love your traditional style and your Nikko Christmastime. I have the same set and love it. I’m a new follower and looking forward to seeing your hutch decorated for Christmas.

    • Thanks BabS!! and welcome to Pineridge Hills! I am so loving the hutch, but now I want to switch it out everyday! Its going to be fun during holidays like Easter and St. Patrick’s Day, my husband is going to make me a dining table now to match the hutch……
      Ill be decorating the hutch more as we get closer to Christmas, I’m also a Santa collector so I may pull some of the Santa’s from the living room and display them on the hutch,,,,,
      stay well new friend and come on back!
