The Tablescaper has asked us to bare it all….she wants us to show where we keep it all! Do I even know where I keep it all? :) Well, maybe...sometimes…if it’s where it’s supposed to be…and the stars are aligned right…and I’m having a good day.
The everyday cabinet in the kitchen….straight from the cabinet to the table to the dishwasher and back again. Note-We do not have more than two mugs that match. Beloved is very particular about the size and shape of his mug, so we have an odd conglomeration.
Another kitchen cabinet (I am blessed with good cabinets) holds the set I almost sent to Goodwill. I have a service for 24 of this. My roommate in college also chose it. Her first marriage lasted about two years and she gave hers to me. Thank you to her and
the cheating dog her first husband! Laurie at Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie has this too! Now, let’s get serious.
This is what I assume is supposed to be a coat closet in my dining room. We added shelves…who hangs coats in the dining room? It holds the good china, both mine and my grandmother’s Haviland. Crystal, silver, and odd and ends that I use on a fairly regular basis call this home. You can’t see the bottom (on purpose :).
Now showing you this is truly against my better judgement. This is the deep dark closet under my stairway….good shelves, but no light. And no, I did not clean it up for you as you can tell. I hang tablecloths on hangers in this closet also.
And since I took you to the place of darkness, I’ll show you mirrors and light. I don’t love this spot in my home, but it is a good place to display pretty barware. I also have a small collection of crystal angels here---the children call them my “bar angels” :). Doesn’t everyone have those?
I told The Tablescaper I couldn’t do this….but there, I’ve done it and I feel better. I’ve shown you my untidy secrets. I ‘ve seen the Tablscaper’s collection. Now she has a collection and it is well-organized. Join the party here. Thanks for dropping by---leave me a note!
