Where do I keep it all?


After seeing some of the participants to The Tablescaper's "Where Do I Keep it All?"  I decided maybe I do have some things I can share.  Most of my dishes are wrapped in paper, in the bottom of this china cabinet above, or even under a bed! Not possible to take pictures of those!  My Old Country Roses china and a few special items are stored in the china cabinet, above, in the dining room.

Here are a few things stored on a shelf in the master bedroom:
 
 I love these delicate fine china tea cups!
  Here you can see the detail of the shelf:
 

These plates are hanging on the wall near the shelf:


This muffin stand holds some of my yellow rose tea cup collection:



Now, on to the kitchen, this Longaberger stand holds tea cups I use most:




I also store tea pots and tea cups on top of my kitchen cabinets. Looking toward the cabinets, left to right:


The middle set of cabinets (over the stove and microwave.)
I'm short and not a good one to take pictures of these high places. You can also see how high the ceilings are!

 I hesitated to do this, but since others are doing it, so will I! Here's the inside of my cupboards where some of my crystal is stored!


This is our "everyday china" (Yellow Fiesta)

Our "everyday" glasses:


 So, there you have it! An impromptu showing without any rearranging.  What you see is what you get!!

I almost was going to close my computer, when I saw your post and I love it..so glad I came! Your china and teacups are gorgeous, what a great collection. I love the little porcelain houses too. You store your things in a very nice way, and nothing better than to make them part of your display decor, even though we all have the ugly carton boxes, too! Thanks for sharing.

Dear Katherine,

I love what you have with all of us...You home is so warm and inviting. So charming with all of your teacups and pretties, glassware, dishes e. I love seeing what all of the people have shared with The Tablescapers; Where Do You Keep It All blog party.

Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee

P.S. ~ I am out of blog commission temporarily, yet at long last...yay!... My hubby-web developer to the rescue. I will let all of you know about my new website soon. I was having Blogger difficulties galore.

You are SO organized. I can't get over it. Look at all of your lovely things, too, Katherine!

Is that Country Ross? One of my BFF's daughters and my surrogate niece has that pattern, and I love it.

XO,

Sheila

I'm catching up - again! I loved seeing all the creative ways you've displayed and stored your pretty dishes, cups and teapots. I need to redo my storage. My sweetheart bought a wonderful, big storage cabinet for me to use for all of my pretties. It will be in the garage when he gets it assembled and in place. In the meantime, a lot of mine has to be in boxes.

Please stop by and see the cute, little vintage trailers from my campout last weekend. Next week I'll start sharing the renovations on my vintage trailer. Stay tuned!

You are such a woman after my own heart. I love to see people store their prettiest dishes right out in plain sight so they become part of the decor. I love that longaberger rack thingie the best of all, but the muffin stand (I think that's what you called it) came in a close second.

Sorry to be so late getting here. I've been away from the computer.

I like all your display areas. I wouldn't be able to have stands where the dogs could knock them over. Love all the Fiesta!!
