So, when The Tablescaper put out the invitation to join her in celebrating her second blogger-versay, I was happy to respond.
Happy Second Blogger-versary The Tablescaper!
I have loved every one your inspiring, truly awesome tablescapes. They were my jumping off point when I decided to join this wonderful community of artistic people who design, create and inspire week to week. Your comments kept me going when sometimes I wondered if I was going off the deep end with this passion of mine. I have so loved being a part of it all.
Here's to all of us, who delight in all things beautiful!
We begin in the kitchen
where I am lucky enough to
have two pantries like this for storage.
One of course, HAD to be for food.
The other was immediately designated dishes only!
Of course there is the kitchen hutch.
Here I store the color coordinated accents
to match the kitchen decor
The island cabinet has two sides.
Again, every space must share with
I finally moved the crystal
to their own little cabinet
in the mud room this year.
They seem happy all together now.
From the kitchen we move
to the diningroom hutch
Here I store my fruit patterned china.
Hey look there's a space!
I have to keep that in mind for the next shopping trip!
The diningrooom buffet where the holiday
glassware is stored
It all looks pretty tame doesn't it?
Well, because we're friends I'll
let you into .....
Every tablescaper knows it's all
about the accents.
Here is where the true fun begins!
This area is best for holiday specific items
A left over chest is best for storing....
Napkins! Of course!
My old Hoosier cabinet is also pressed into duty.
Here vases and apothecary jars found a home.
Ok, not so bad you say.
But here is where I let my crazy out to play.
These storage bins have been
with me forever. I think they
were the beginning of it all! LOL
And yes my friends, they are labeled.
By holiday, and just plain "party" items
Ok, out of the dungeon
Lastly, my old 'friend' recently relocated to the
sun porch, is also a treasure keeper
of the outside accents.
I hope you had fun touring my addiction.
I certainly had fun celebrating
the Second Blogger-versary of
and thanks to her for his party
and her weekly links.
I wish her many more beautiful
settings in the future to share with us.
