Where do I keep it all?

OK, I wasn't really ready for this..I was HOPING to be a little more organized for this type of post, but oh well...

I have only been "collecting" dishes for a few years, so my collection is not as large as some..
I have found that Craig's List armoires sell REALLY CHEAP (nobody wants them anymore. They don't work well with the flat screen tvs) I have bought several lately for $20-$40.

Ok, lets start with my every day dishes. Of course, they are stacked in my kitchen cabinets

Ten we move to the dining room. We have a Craigs List armoire (used to be a computer armoire 'til my husband re-worked it for me)
Here I keep tablecloths, placemats and napkins

 Also in the dining room, we have the china cabinet. This stores most of my serving pieces and larger trays. I also have some of my dog collection and old clocks in there to add interest.
Below we keep some glasses (and what-nots) Looks like there are a few candles in there, but I was going to change that :)

Napkin rings in the drawers.

 Then, there's the Dish Bedroom  Guest Bedroom!!
Another armoire (this one's from Goodwill)
Dishes on top and chargers on bottom

Oh, then there is the Guest closet ...MORE dishes and tablescape treasures :)
Good thing I don't get many guests!!

  1. For someone who hasn't been collecting for very long, I would say you are doing a "super-job" of catching up! I really like the ways you have stored things, especially all those lovely linens!

    1. Hi Carol,
      I am working HARD at it! LOL
      The GREAT deals at JCPenney (last year)and the Tuesday Morning Deals I blogged about have SURE been making it EASY and AFFORDABLE!

  2. What a great collection! Looks so nice and organized! I have a new weekly link party which is live now and I would love if you stop by and link up this wonderful post! Hope to see you there! Hugs, Maria

    1. Hi Maria-
      Thanks for your comments. I just joined your party!

  3. This is so nice. I wish I had the room for all of those lovely pieces. Good Job!
