My Jadeite Collection


Another one of my Collections
My Jadeite Glassware



I was asked by a few of you to
share a photo of my Jadeite Collection
So I thought I would snap a couple pictures of
my Hutch. 



This Hutch was made by my Hubby just for
My Collection. We added the chicken wire to the
Doors and painted the wire black.
And the entire Hutch was made with re-purposed
wood from our old 70's wood fence we replaced
And we lined the drawers with burlap...
The perfect place to showcase my collection!

Hugs & Kisses,

Your collection looks so pretty...and you know I love the hutch that Pete made!

The shower is going to be exciting!

What a wonderful, eye catching display of jadite. I love how you mixed the touches of pink throughout your display.

That cabinet is certainly something to be proud about. Your husband did a wonderful job and the chicken wire really puts it over the top.

I love your collection!! It looks so beautiful in your hutch. I collect it, as well- thank goodness I started when I was a teenager, since most of it is well out of my price range now. My dream is to some day be able to display it all as nicely as you have done. I've never had a cabinet big enough - and it would need to be on open shelves or behind glass doors, because it simply BEGS to be seen.
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely display with us.

Hi Diane!
Wow, what an amazing collection! I remember my mom having a few cups that were jadite growing up. And what a great display cabinet. Lucky you to have such a talented hubby to make that for you!

Blessings...Lorena

Your Jadeite collection is awesome!! It mixes perfectly with the Franciscan Desert Rose. (I have some of the D.R.) The hutch your honey made for you is wonderful too. And I really like the mixing bowl with the green stripes up on the top of the shelf.
