I Keep it Everywhere!!

Hello Everyone,
I'm joining a party all about
to celebrate
The Second Bloggiversary of The Tablescaper

Before Blogging I loved dishes. But in the past year dish collecting has taken on a new meaning.  I'm always thinking about dishes and what centerpiece theme I would like to design.  Blogging is a very creative outlet for me since my retirement.  I love to touch, feel, wash and organize things.

This is a utility cabinet in the laundry room.  The bottom part has appliances that are only used on occasion. 

This cabinet is in the dining area
I like the way I put all the glassware on the top three glass shelves and the silver on the bottom shelf.

This display is on top of the 'Tea Party Cabinet'
I find it difficult sometimes to find places for my cake plates.  This display worked well, because it displays a complete tea set and glass cake plates plus my apothecary jars.

I love grouping my Tea sets together and this wall hanging is perfect for this tea set.
This tea set is hanging on the dining room wall next to the 'Tea Party Cabinet'

The bottom of this cabinet holds the dining room television.  The dining room and kitchen are one large room.  I can watch television while I'm cooking.  I covered foam core with yellow fabric and inserted it in the back of the cabinet shelves.. I think it added a punch with the blue and white dishes.

My Favorite Things

Dolly collection is stored in the guest room closet

A shoe storage container stores the napkin collection. 

The guest room closet stores all the linen tablecloths, runners, centerpieces, chargers, napkin rings and candles.  I always iron the tablecloth and napkins before a arranging a tablescape.

I will be joining at myriad of wonderful bloggers
