Great Finds

I am still in the midst of my organizing and decluttering! So far I am making great progress in the kitchen. Of course, it is going slower than I would like, but I feel good about what I have accomplished. In my previous post I went over some guidelines about what to get rid of and what to keep, by asking yourself a series of questions. One question in particular dealt with sentimental value to an item. While I was going through my kitchen items I found a silver platter dish that had belonged to my grandfather. He passed away over 15 years ago and I've just kept the dish packed up. I also came across some tea cups and saucers that belonged to my husband's grandmother. It hit me that these items are beautiful and hold sentimental value to me, that I should display them and not just "hide them". So, I put them together with some other items in the kitchen where they can add some beauty and also share some of our heritage.

Very cute and ingenious! (Although you're making me feel inadequate with all of your organizing and de-cluttering...eek! I should be doing that this winter!!)
