A Christmas Hutch On A Christmas Hutch

Let's see what's new on
 the hutch buffet this Christmas.
What a really cool sugar cookie Christmas tree 
next to the gingerbread house.  
Somebody has been busy baking this season.
A three tier stand of cookies and cupcakes
looks so tempting, who's going to miss just one?
A basket full of Christmas cookies with 
green icing and sugar sprinkles.
Those gingerbread men sure look yummy
next to a happy snowman teapot. 
Moving up to the top shelf, we find a 
green Christmas pitcher next to a cute 
reindeer and sleigh toothpick holder and a 
green bas relief Santa plate. 
A cheerful Santa head mug 
rounds out the Christmas collection.
As I back up to get a better shot of 
the whole hutch, I'm blocked by a 
pair of antlers!
Why, there's a set of  Radko reindeer salt 
and pepper shakers in front of the cupboard. 
It seems the hutch buffet itself is part of a 
hutch buffet Christmas collection!
The Ozark Christmas Hutch Buffet 
collection to be exact.
Just another new bauble
I thought would look at home on the hutch.
It's actually an ornament from
Hallmark's 2012 Keepsake Ornament Club 
titled "Mrs. Claus's Cupboard"
It was a collaboration by all 
of Hallmark's ornament artists. 
Each added a different piece to the 
cupboard to create the ornament.
I just love the details, like Santa's pipe
hiding up on top of the hutch.
It has Santa's face carved on the bowl!
The little surprises don't stop there.
Just open up the cabinet doors...
to reveal another charming scene. 
All of Mrs. Claus's baking tools.
There's rolling pin, a mixing bowl, 
cookie cutters, a tree shaped baking tin, 
and an oven pad hanging on the door.
On the other side we find her cat 
soundly sleeping in it's basket bed.
I was dumb in 2012 and didn't sign up for the
club to buy the ornament for $34.99.  
Nooo, I waited till a few years later when 
I realized I just had to have it and 
trolled Ebay for one at double the price.
Yay...lucky me.
Mine is a 2012 repaint of the original 2011 
convention exclusive version in white.
I prefer the brown on more, it looks 
very slimier to my actual hutch buffet.
 Don't you think?
Thanks for stopping by
and happy hunting.
