Okinawa China

I love to change things around, always trying to find ways to make my home prettier and to function better. I have this set of china that DH bought when he was on an unaccompanied tour in Okinawa in 1990. He went to a china shop with another one of his Marine buddies and they both bought sets.
I have not used mine very much and since we don't have a china hutch in this house, they were not on display either.
DH was gone all weekend so I spent Saturday redoing my cabinets.
I got the china out of a hidden away corner cabinet, washed it all and put in our main dish cabinet.

Then I moved the everyday white dishes to a small cabinet between the microwave and refrigerator.

I cleaned out all the kitchen utensils, keeping out only the ones I use regularly and store some of the seldom used ones away.
I previously had 2 holders on the countertop holding utensils. Now I just have this one, an Italian clay pot painted raspberry pink.

When I was done, I had 4 boxes of things to donate thrift store.

Jeff liked the changes when he got home. But Nina's boyfriend was so confused when he tried to fix himself a snack. He is a funny boy and even though they have been dating for 3 1/2 years, he is still not used to my changing things. He better get used to it though, because Nina, his future wife, is an awful lot like her momma.

  1. It always feels so good to have everything reorganized and cleaned out. I love that feeling!
