Even with all the cabinets my hubby has built to display my dishes, there's never enough room for everything. Last week while sorting and organizing totes in the basement, I decided to change the china in the family room cabinet.
Below are the chocolate pots, teapots and teacups that were in it.
What a job to remove and wrap everything to put in storage totes. I labeled each piece, as well as the totes, so I'll be able to find things easily when needed. I don't think I'll be making another change for quite a while! ;-)
I decided to display my pink and red transferware, and some of my pink Depression glass. My collection of Depression glass was a fair size, and when my mother moved into assisted living she gave me all of hers, increasing the size considerably. Below is what would fit on my dining room table, and that's not all of it. It was hard to decide what to put in the china cabinet and what to put back into storage.
I'm still tweaking the china cabinet, but this is the outcome so far.
These kinds of projects make me realize how much "stuff" I have, and that I should never buy another dish for the rest of my life, but... I probably will! ;-)
My transferware is Johnson Brothers Old Britain Castles. I have service for eight.
