Thanks... Items left are too big but might be handy in future.

I think I have a date with the dreaded TarnX. I prefer leaving grooves antiqued, but....

Today it was the six "Break Em and Die" china plates, which are drying in the dishwasher. They're going into the USE cabinet, not the Display cabinet. I have big white chargers to go under them... The antique pattern is pretty pink and green floral on white. With linen napkins that coordinate. And coordinating sterling flatware.

Also today, a box of madonnas, with more to come.

Because display space is so limited, I'm storing decor items in destination spots, grouped. As more bookshelves arrive, we'll pull from these collections to decorate those-- AND offer individual pieces from the collections to godchildren. The end result will be reasonable, small groupings on small wall shelves and side tables, not case after case of glass curio cabinets to live between. I want all these shapes touchable-- stroke-able!-- and out in actual use.

TBTG for Swiffers and dishwashers.
