Summer Changes in the Breakfast Room

I am always changing the hutch in the breakfast room, it seems. I love to change things seasonally but also to mix things up a bit!!! I also change the 2 shelving things (that are actually plant stands). I got them MANY years ago and now they live in the breakfast room. Here is what we have right now!
 Since we have been gardening outside ALOT, I am using alot of gardening elements in this room for now.  Birdhouses, gardening implements, birds etc.
 My birdhouse lamp is one of my favorites.

 For those of you who don't know, Joe built this hutch for me. We saw one very similair up in Lancaster county and he made a sketch on a piece of scrap paper and came home and built it for me!!! He did it like the Amish do: you can not see ANY nails or screw. Great craftmanship!!!!
 My large birdhouse sits on top now. And some bee skeps that I love.
 I love the galvanized wartering can and placed one of my gardening figurines on the edge.

 I kept this large bunny out because I just love him!
 I made this napkin holder many years ago too; painted it and added the flowers, bird and pots.

 I also painted this gardening cart, added the flowers and little signs and gardening hat!

I got this green matal jar on our trip to Fl. this past winter. Along with another turtle shell, I just lve them Our neighbor actually has baby turtles that just hatched in her side yard!!!!

    Great layering and textures throughout these Summer changes in your breakfast room, dear friend!!!

  8. I just love that hutch! Joe is very talented!

  9. Joe built that??!??!?! WOW!!! That's amazing! I am super impressed, especially because it's built the Amish way! That takes a ton of skill and concentration and craftsmanship! The only thing Ramon can build is anxiety and a pile of dirty laundry!!! :-)

    That tortoise shell is pretty cool. I marvel at their construction. Sometimes wish I had one on my own back. Oh, wait...I do. It's called Spanx!!!!!!! :-)

    Have a great weekend!

  11. I love all of your sweet birds and birdhouses in your breakfast room. What a lovely display. Hugs

  12. It all looks so lovely and inviting. I love your hutch and all the bird accents. Thanx for sharing at THT!
