Mission #2 Complete!

Finally - all of my china is organized, in their safe little containers, and put away. Never again will I be storing my antique handpainted china with party napkins. I didn't get a good "before" picture" because I had already moved it upstairs (you can see the china stacked with party napkins here) but look how pretty it looks now!The stacked plates look all crooked in the picture, but they're not really - the darn containers are so much taller than they need to be that there is a ton of extra fabric at the top (which makes them look all funky in the picture). And I decided to leave the mystery china in its box (seriously...I will be so happy if someone can identify it...when I asked my dad, all he remembered is that there are two sets of it because one was damaged...so NOT helpful...) and the tea pot out of the container. The holder for it was so oddly shaped that I think it made the tea pot less safe. It will be fine just on the shelf. Now, to have a dinner party...

That looks beautiful! Where'd you get those? I would love to get a set for my own China.

The china containers are from organize.com - they had the best selectcion I could find, and I really liked the look of these. The only problem is that they come in sets, so I had to order an entire second set of dish containers to accomodate my absurd number of dessert plates & saucers!
