Where Do I Keep It All?

It is the question I am asked often.  There is no bettter time to show where I store some of my tablescaping goodies than to link up with The Tablescaper to help celebrate her Third Blog-a-versary on her weekly blog party: Seasonal Sundays.  Now the linens, flatware and glasses can each have their own post but  I will try to show a little of everything.
I must feature some of my bowls since I have so many. These are used on a daily basis.  The cart was purchased at an estate sale.  My hubby did an amazing of cleaning it up.

This is where the dish washer used to be.  We couldn't replace it so my dad built me some shelves.  I would like to paint the rest of the cabinets the same color. There is a curtain that usually has them covered.
This bookcase is in the dining area.  It is a partial transitional spot when changing the table or for the season.

Here is the pantry in the kitchen. We took off the accoridan doors.  The right side was wasted space but my dad came to the rescue again and built me more shelves.  The bottom doesnt have anything photo worry.


This is the guest bedroom.  This nook was wasted space so Dad built me more shelves.  Aside from the dishes there are also some of my child hood toys. Even as a child I loved dishes. You can see mini tea sets and my little refrigerator.

Here is the first closet in this room.  Again more shelves were added. My dream is to have the shelves go across the entire closet.  I need to find a home for the Christmas stuff that is on the right side first.

The bins have napkins, candles, Christmas napkin rings, and seasonal itmes.

This is the second closet in this room.  The tablecloths have to share the space with some clothes.  I will admit that I have given a lot of clothes away to make more room for the cloths.
 This chest of drawers in the guest bedroom has my place mats and some of the napkin rings.



So there you have it. This is just some my dishe storage.  I still have plenty to share for next year's party. Be sure to visit The Tablescaper to view where everyones had their goodies stored.



Have a great week. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Wow- you dad is a "gem"! You have great storage.
    Love seeing all of your dishes. I laughed out loud about your giving away clothes to make more room. I recently did the same thing!!

    1. I agree Pam that it does make feel better. Even more so is that I am NOT crazy like some of my friends say I am. They are the ones that are crazy because they use paper plates. LOL
