Where Do I Keep It All Part II

It is that time of year again to show where we keep all our tablescaping goods over at The Tablescaper's blog for her weekly party Seasonal Sundays.  It is her fourth blog-a-versary. So make sure to stop by and wish her well.  Thank you Alma for hosting!! I so look forward to this every year now so I can get some new ideas and for some group therapy to confirm that I am not the only one with this addiction.  LOL.
I participated last year for the first time.  You can see it here.  I had so much fun going around my house looking at my stuff and deciding on what I should post and not post.  It was the same this year.

So I will start off with something I showed you last year which is where I store my day to day bowls.
Bowls have come in gone in the sense that I am sharing with my niece and friend who are new Fiesta collectors. I was able to get the Marigold mixing bowls on the bottom far right. Oh and I did break one while setting up a table.  Luckily I was able to replace it.

Here is my small collection of Fiesta mini pitchers along with some other favorites. I say small because there are hundreds of mini pitchers when you include all the pieces with decals on them.

This cabinet holds most of my vintage Fiesta and some special pieces.  It is not all in the best shape to use but they make great display pieces. So sorry about the picture. 

This small cabinet is in the guest bedroom. It holds some special Fiesta pieces also. 

 My friend gave me a small chest of drawers that are now the home for most of my napkin rings.

The large pitcher (part) collection lives is this corner cabinet outside the kitchen and in the entrance to the guest bedroom.

My hubby found this hutch for me at Goodwill. I am so lucky he is one of my enablers. It holds most of my Christmas dishes. It lives in the garage.

My new addition to my storage solutions is this cedar chest. I found it at a local thrift shop. It now holds most of my tablecloths.  It also lives in the guest bedroom.

So there is another peak on my storage solutions.  I hope you enjoyed your visit.

  1. Good to hear from you. I have been so busy it is very hard to visit everyone like I would like.

    Your collection is amazing especially the pitchers. I love the corner cabinet displaying them. I bet you remember where you bought most of them. I guess we should write down each purchase and the story behind them If we collect certain things to satisfy our later curiosity.

    Storage is a problem for all us dish addicts. You have a huge collection of napkin rings. I am still enjoying the ones you gave me and it is getting time to do a shell theme table again.

    Hope you are having a fabulous summer.

    1. Hi Bonnie! I have started a spread sheet of all my Fiesta but I haven't kept it up to date. I am glad you are still enjoying the napkin rings.

  2. You have an amazing collection, especially all your Fiesta! I didn't get a post ready to join in this year, but it still bothers me to look at the post I did last year where I showed all my stuff crammed everywhere, LOL. Yours are in pretty displays. Funny, you collect napkin rings for your tables, and I collect candlesticks for mine. :) Pam

  3. Thanks for visiting me and helping me to find you! What a beautiful collection you have! I have a new love of Fiesta, I say new because it is only recently that I have come to appreciate it, where was my brain?! I also have a thing for vintage planters and plant stands, so I really like the two you showed at the top,they look great with all the Fiesta displayed on them. Take care- Dawn

  5. When you collect Fiesta, it just makes a beautiful statement to store it out in the open. I love your corner shelves with the pitcher collection. Nobody could be unhappy looking at these fun, bright colors. Your new cedar chest makes a perfect place to store your tablecloths. I enjoyed seeing all of it. laurie

  6. I think it would be so much fun to open any one of your cabinets and see such happy color. I never see a piece of Fiestaware without thinking of you, but I can't imagine you need another piece after seeing this!

    1. Oh there is a lot on my wish list still. There are a few colors that I don't have any items of and certain pieces that I wouldn't mind in every color.
      Thank you for stopping by!
