St. Patrick's Day Hutch

St. Patrick's Day Hutch Arrangement

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  I don't remember ever arranging my Hutch for St. Patrick's Day, but this year I decided to try, and here is the result.  Apparently (but also not exactly surprisingly) I do have enough green dishes to make it work.

Boopie Burple Anchor Hocking Forest Green glassware
Anchor Hocking Burple Forest Green Glassware

I started with some forest green glassware that I consider ubiquitous.   Made by Anchor Hocking and called the unlikely name Burple, they seem to be in nearly every antique store, older estate sale, and are often in resale shops too.  I love the deep green glow this glassware has.

I have stories about many of the dishes I've found - stories I remember as I am assembling the hutch.  For example, five of the green Majolica plates were souvenirs from France -  found in a tiny resale shop stumbled upon while waiting for a train back to Paris somewhere in a small town somewhat near a French (palace) "Chateau".  The dishes bring a flood of memories.

The shell plates below remind me of the retiring antique dealer (over 80 years old) who gave me an incredible deal on some plates I had admired for years.

Will he return to the antique show after this pandemic?  Perhaps I'll never see him again, but these dishes will remind me of him - and also his wife who was no longer able to attend the antique shows in the last couple of years.

Occasionally I have a "where in the heck did I get this" moment as I find something I forgot I owned.  ($5 bag sales are a fun end of an estate sale tool in Wisconsin - Other thrifters - do they have them in your part of the world?)

I also included my green tumblers.  I don't know why I like tumblers so much, but I do!

Meissen plate from Germany

I found the Meissen plate above at an estate sale in 2020.  (I wore my mask.)  I didn't own any Meissen plates, so I bought it as a sort of retail therapy.  It gets the center position, even though I recognize it's kind of over the top.

I've been enjoying the St. Patrick's day decor I've noticed on many blogs.  I hope you enjoy my contribution. 

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

I am sure that you derived a lot of pleasure from assembling all these treasures, and reliving some of the memories of acquiring them.

Sandra @ Dinner at Eight said...

I enjoyed seeing your hutch display. All the plates are pretty, but I'm especially drawn to the majolica. Funny, but I have two of the green goblets too!

Kimberly said...

Such a beautiful collection! I love how you remember from where you got them and the people you got them from. :)

Michelle said...

Your arrangement of this dishware is perfect. My favorite is the majolica. That is something I don't own, but would like to. Thanks for linking up.

Jerralea said...

So pretty! I love the greeen!

I also am happy that you have memories attached to your dishes. I collect dishes, too, but the last few years have been so busy, they are not treasured like they should be.

Wonderful Wednesday LINKY said...

What an amazing collection of glass, and perfect for St Patrick's display!
I would like to invite you to join us to share your posts on #omhgww
Happy Spring!

Linda Stoll said...

Oh so pretty! The more green right now, the better ...

Dixie @ Arranged Words said...

What a beautiful collection. I love the majolica.

Donna @ Modern on Monticello said...

It is nice to see the green on display after such a long winter. Happy St. Patrick's Day and thanks for visiting the party and sharing your post with us. #HomeMattersParty

The Meissen plate is stunning! Love the smaller green plates. I know what you mean, the right size of glass/tumbler is important. The taller ones, are prone to be knocked over! What a delightful St Patricks' Day shelf, Jeanne - many thanks for sharing it with All Seasons! Have a great rest of the week, Jesh

Kathy said...

What a wonderful display! As I have had a bout with severe dental pain, I did very little for St. Pat's Day this year; I especially enjoyed seeing your treasures!

Sylvia said...

Jeanne, I love the Meisen plate! The hutch looks wonderful. Great display. Have a great week. Sylvia D.

Michele Morin said...

This is so festive! Spring!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

You have a marvelous china and glassware collection! TAll the green does look very fest I've for St Patrick's Day. I have some Irish Belleek china that I treasure and would love to find more in a thrift shop adventure

Joanne said...
