I knew the day that I found "The Tablescaper" that I had found a place to call home. For many years, I hid my love for beautiful dishes because of three wild boys. When they became teenagers, I used some of my stash to teach them manners and how to behave in public (which worked, BTW), but now that they've all flown the coop-I can play with my dishes! I've never really thought about where I keep everything, most of it is stashed wherever I can find room. My wedding china, Noritake "Ranier" is stored in the china cabinet given to me by my mother-in-law. She insisted that I register for china and crystal when I got married and now I am so glad she did.
I keep serving pieces and various other things in the bottom of the cabinet. I think I need to clean this out.
along with the cabinet came the buffet. It is filled with candles, napkins, flatware, some centerpiece items and probably some things that I've been looking for but forgot were there. Too messy to show!
My everyday Fiesta is in my kitchen. When we remodeled about 7 years ago, I wanted glass doors on some of my cabinets so I could see what I had and to keep me a little bit more organized.
We put our old kitchen cabinets in the garage. Some are full of dishes, but some are full of junk. I think I need to remedy that situation so I can store more dishes.
I just purchased this little dresser/nightstand at Home Goods. Right now, it holds napkin overflow. It needs a little bit more organization.
And so, there you have it. I didn't show all the boxes of stemware and sets of dishes stored for another day. I tried to count all of the sets of dishes that I have and only came up with 10-so I am way behind all of you. Thank you for your inspiration each week!
