|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.
|Green Depression Glassware|
I started with some green depression glassware that I consider ubiquitous. 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 the 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.
|French Limoge Hand-painted Shell plates|
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!
