|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.
|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.
|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!
