The most frequently asked question by my blog readers is: How do you dust all of your stuff? Answer: Don’t look closely. I don’t dust often.
The second most frequently asked question is: Where do you keep all of your dishes? I’ve been collecting dishes for a VERY long time. My sweetheart and I have been married for almost 44 years. That’s a long time to collect if you are addicted to dishes. I know you won’t believe me, but I have even gotten rid of some dishes in that 44 years (not many, but some). When we remodeled my family home to move into it, I knew I wanted a dish pantry. My dish pantry is long and narrow, so it’s difficult to take photos, but this mosaic will show you most of the cabinets in the dish pantry.
In the drawers under these cabinets, I store chargers and platters.
Of course, it didn’t take long for me to fill up the dish pantry, so my built-in cabinet that was supposed to be for the display of some pretty things, became dish storage too.
During holiday times, the most frequently asked question is: Where do you store all of your holiday décor? Again, I’ve been collecting holiday décor for 44 years, so when we remodeled the house, my sweetheart agreed that we needed a holiday closet (he was tired of helping me drag boxes from the attic).
This is another long, narrow space, so it is difficult to take pictures. It is also a mess, but I’m the only person who ever goes in there, and I can’t believe I’ve shared it on my blog. I won’t even let my best friend look inside this closet. I apparently have no pride on my blog, but you can’t say I don’t keep it real. Have you entered the giveaway on my blog? I know you can find something at Amazon to spend a $180 gift card on. Enter here and on 17 other blogs.
