Welcome to The Tablescaper and my THIRD Blog-a-versary! In honor of my THIRD Blog-a-versary, I’m hosting the third WHERE DO YOU KEEP IT ALL? It’s clearly the question I’m asked the most. You can click HERE to see my FIRST Where do you keep it all? and HERE to see my SECOND Where do you keep it all?
So, as this was approaching, I began to think, what am I going to post? Haven’t I shown them everything? And the more I thought about it, I realized I’ve shown you my deep storage, but I really haven’t shown you where I keep things in most of my regular living space.
You’ve been down this hallway many times. Usually to see a vignette on that little table by the front door.
But I don’t think I’ve ever shown you the built in shelving unit that is on the other side of the hallway. It is filled with many tea treasures!
I’ll just share a little highlight today as going through the whole shelf would be a post in itself. the cocoa pot with the lovely lady on it was my mother-in-laws. The cat was my Nana Reis’s. The rest are treasures I’ve collected.
Now into the living room. As I’ve said before, one of my favorite places to store things is in the open, so of course there are plates on the wall above the sofa and, can you steal a glimpse into the open door of the powder room? There are plates on that wall too.
The sconces were purchased on a buying trip to North Carolina and the painting was done by a family friend of Mr. Scaper’s.
This little cabinet holds a ton of treasures – including ones made by my children – but again, I think the contents are another post. Yeah, I know, I’ve got a lot of stuff.
Now, you’ve seen that table in many a tablescape, but I don’t think you’ve ever seen the armoire…
…filled with glassware!
The cabinet is so deep, it holds a whole lot!
I even made use of the little shelf on the very top – various shot glass type vessels to hold individual portions.
The cabinet underneath is Mr. Scaper’s domain. He collects vintage audio gear.
Once again, you’ve seen the corner cabinet, but…
…an entire collection of Summer Chintz is below! I don’t think I’ve ever used that in a post!
And my little side bar sits demurely to the side, but…
…it’s drawers are stuffed with collections of spreader, small forks and small spoons.
And, you’ve seen my beloved demi-lune cabinet before, but…
…it holds many treasures!
And now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for. In order to determine the winner of the $100. Gift Certificate to HomeGoods or TJMaxx, I used a highly scientific method. LOL! Well, there was a little bit of scientific method. I copied all of the comments made since I announced the giveaway into a Word document. I then thought I’d count. Well, the document was over 100 pages long – no kidding. So…I used the find feature in Word to count out the names. I picked the top 15 or so commenters and put each name on a piece of paper in a bowl. Then my youngest daughter reached in the bowl and…
The winner is Barbara at Two Birdies and a Bee!
Thank you all for participating in the give-away. Barbara, please be sure to email your address so I can send the gift card.
So, where do you keep it all???
