Where Do I Keep it All?

Where do I keep it all?   The Tablescaper has asked us to make this weeks post about where we keep all our dishes and seasonal decor.   I will start in the hallway with a large lit cabinet that I store all my milk glass in.  I love to use milk glass in my tablescapes.

Across the hall from the milk glass display, is the laundry room.  I have lots of cabinets in the laundry room and almost all of them are filled with linens....lace tablecloths. vintage tablecloths. place mats, napkins, and doilies.

I have lots of storage in the kitchen and that is where most of my glasses for tablescapes are stored.  I also store teapots, salt and pepper shakers, and lots of misc.

In the formal dining room is a large buffet that  holds all of the silver pieces...

This small display case holds some of our butter dishes...

I also have a china cabinet in the formal dining room that holds lots of dishes...

and a smaller cabinet that has some depression glass and china.

In the small dining room is a large built in cabinet that holds lots and lots of misc dishes..

The buffet in the small dining room also is full of dishes.  Our house was built by a contractor for his personal home and he put tons of cabinets in it...there are  built in cabinets in the garage and also the studio that hold seasonal decor.

  Alma is celebrating her fourth blog-iversary by hosting a party for all of us to show "where we store it all"....thank you for hosting and congratulations on four years!!
