I'm in a state of disarray
I tore the living room apart so the carpet could be cleaned.
Everything from the living room landed on the dining table.
While the carpet was drying I decided to tackle cleaning the china cabinet.
I cleaned every inch of it. I edited a few things out and for now I'm happy with it again. I've been putting this off for too long.
I placed some of my stemware in these containers I bought at BB&B. It was too busy on the inside for me so I had to remove things like this.
I turned the lights on so the crystal would show up better.
I added the dishes and rearranged a few pieces.
The gold leaf pieces are from our daughter. She also went to venice and brought these Murano pieces back for me.
I've shown my lambs before at Easter but they stay in here year round.
I've had the dishes for a while but put them away at the holidays and never brought them back. They're reproductions by Spode.
The Murano red decanter set came from Venice in the late 70's when my parents went there. I asked Mom for it when I got my first china cabinet and she let me have it. It's funny I have all this bar ware and champagne flutes but truthfully it rarely gets used. I do like pretty glass and crystal so I guess that's why I collected it.
Our son and his wife are coming home for a little vacation with us. I've got to get all this cleaned up and done before Saturday! Well at least I've gotten one thing done!
Just call me Donna Reed!!
I always thought she was the perfect mom!
Well I better get back at it!
