Getting organized...it took 22 yrs!



That is not a mistyped number! I finally bought those padded, zipped up cases for our 12 place settings of china-which was a wedding gift 4/14/84! I have hardly ever used them and they were stuck in cabinets all over the kitchen.

From this:


Now most of them (except tiny fruit bowls, some dessert plates and serving bowls) are zipped up nicely in their bright white plastic cases-only $14.99! I could have gotten fabric ones for twice the price, but I saw pretty iridescent drinking glasses/tumblers I just had to have. I got two things for what I would have paid for the fabric cases.

To this:
I plan to store them in a 'new' cabinet above the frig.
How am I doing in the kitchen, you ask? Well, I ran out of boxes/crates. I mainly have the everyday things left to move out. Things need to be taken off the countertops. I think if I had to do all what is left to do, I'd get it done in a day, with a little help. Mind you, the guys have only been the crate movers.

Lovely contact paper-definitely a cross stitchers choice. Blasted hard to put up if my memory serves me correctly: 46 yr old oven-I gave up cleaning it when Brian got a 3rd degree burn from some button in it.
Cabinets in front of sink. Even the paneling at the top has slide down over the years.

Now to chose some appliances....I'll try to make that fun. ; )

    Wow, 46 yr old oven? I thought I got the prize with my 27-yr old. LOL.
    When everything is done you should use your good china for a celebratory dinner.

    Good work on your kitchen. And what is this amazing contraption you use to store china in? That sounds like something I should have as well!

    Congrats on the huge organizing job you've finished!! It always feels great to have something like that behind you. Then I run out of steam and have to take a couple of days off, lol!

    You are doing really well with the organising - good luck with the appliance choosing - I love doing that part, I always get so excited.

    Your blog is worth a small fortune too I saw, mine comes up worth 0.
