Confessions Of A Dish Junky.

Its true, I am a dish junky. I get it from my mom, we have been to countless antique, thrift and consignment stores over the years adding and adding to our collections. I have purchased items as low as 10 cents, but I don't care how cheap something is priced, I look for the beauty!

The 2 hardest things about being a dish junky is storage and organization. It can be hard to stack cups and bowls and platters, but I finally tackled the daunting task of organizing this stuff!

I have 3 cabinets for a majority of the stuff. One for my main dishes that are glass, porcelain- well just anything really breakable! Another is for my table linens, candles and small table top items, and the last is for vases, jars and anything else I couldn't find a spot for!

This looks so peaceful and simple, until you open it and see what is inside!

This cabinet is the main culprit, I would hate to see someone try to move it without unloading the additional 100+ pounds sitting there! Those 2 pink cups are some of my favorite! There were less a dollar a piece, so I couldn't resist!

So, if this weren't enough, there is another cabinet hiding in the closet in my office! I guess you could say I'm not just a dish junky but also a table linen and candle junky! Decorating tables is one of my favorite things to do, I find it calming. I love the trial and error of putting together the perfect setting.

I cannot wait until Christmas, so I can pull these birdies out!

Then theres the odds and ends that wouldn't fit else where!

In addition to my 3 cabinets, there is the self under my coffee bar! This is mainly for items I use on a daily basis.

All of this inspires the urge to decorate tables! I might have to decorate some tables and share them with y'all on the blog next week!
