Hello sweet friends!
I've been asked by so many blog friends and people in general as to "where do I store my dishes" as really, you cannot see it at all, if you walked into my house, there aren't any on sight, I love to keep them hidden in the furniture pieces.
The thing I can say on my behalf is that I'm very orderly and organized, otherwise I probably wouldn't be able to find, or remember where I keep some old dishes to play and use them.
I do have a couple of sellers with some boxes of Holiday dishes, or some made back at Monte Turi, our own ceramic factory. It's not pretty, just cartons with dishes, not worth looking at.
I hope you enjoy it as I did photographing this post. Here is the storage on the dining room and breakfast areas: buffets, side boards, credenza, kitchen cabinets, console and curio... I used up every piece of furniture I own for storage.
Storage, Part I.
|We'll begin by checking into the Italian china cabinet and buffet that is large although not deep, as the antique ones, but it has plenty of storage. |
Here you can see it.
|I even used the top part of this piece for some cake plates.|
|The left bottom side contains my reticulated china for twelve place settings.|
|The center part and the largest.|
The china in the lower section is for 16 place settings.
|The right side with drawers containing mostly silverware, some napkins and napkin rings.|
|Ceramic napkin rings from our factory in different colors.|
|Another drawer with various seasonal napkin rings.|
|Now, I love antique buffet pieces as they are so deep as the contemporary aren't, therefore, the more the merrier !|
|In the upper level. Tea china for twelve place settings and others.|
|On both sides of the lower level lots of pieces from our own designe and made china.|
|This antique Belgium sideboard is again deep and large, so it stores lots of dishes.|
|In the lower left side my red and blue transferware dishes.|
|This is such a great storage piece, it's containing my Noritake for twelve settings and four others for eight and some water goblets and miscellaneous pieces.|
This is an antique Egyptian console where I have some more glassware stored.
|Here you have it, Part I of my dish and china storage.|
Hope you come by for Part II, I guarantee you, it'll be fun.
Thank you so much for your sweet and kind comments, you always make my day!
