My favorite Cabinet

Today I'm joining Shelia at  Note Songs for her "Heart of the Home-Cabinets" Linky Party.  Come on over!

My house is an old 1940's Cape Cod, and as much as I love the style AND my house, I have to admit that storage hasn't been ideal, especially in my tiny kitchen and dining room.  There was a pantry, but it was deep and very hard to see into.  There were three cabinets for dishes, which I suppose would be adequate  IF I didn't collect dishes....  So, this past year for Christmas, my mom and brother arrranged the ultimate gift for a dish collector:  a new giant cabinet built into my dining room!




It pairs nicely with the vintage walnut cabinet that was my great, great grandmother's to hold a decent bit of my Fiesta collection. 



If we peek around the corner into the hallway, we can see the new shallow shelves  to show off other pretties!

  2. Such beautiful cabinets! The white is the perfect backdrop for the colorful pieces and a gorgeous display!

    I grew up in a cape cod and just posted about it a few days ago.

    So nice stopping by to visit with you!

  6. Hi Elaine! Oh, what a wonderful Christmas gift! Your cabinet is just awesome and how beautiful all your Fiesta Ware is! You have so many pretty pieces. Just love that stuff. Have you been to Candy's blog - The Little Round Table? I'm sure you have. She has a lot of Fiesta Ware too.
    Thank you so much for coming to my party, Elaine.
