The Other English China Cupboard









Busy times! Thank you so much for all the good wishes! I am feeling so much better. Now I am playing catch up. But suddenly my calender is all lined up for the rest of the year! How can that be? It makes me so glad for all we got done before fall weather set in.




One of those things was revamping a few cupboards, and switching things around. Over time, a lot of things inside get reshuffled and disorderly. The last time I showed this antique leaded glass English oak cabinet was at Christmastime last year. I didn't like the way things had organically evolved inside, but had no time to do anything with it, so I placed a lace panel behind the doors to camouflage it for a while, as shown below....



The other issue is the bad lighting for photos in this corner of my living room, so it rarely gets seen on the blog. I thought it was time for another peek before it gets all out of order again!




A new vintage tin panel I found this summer is propped on top. The lamp is also vintage with a closeout botanical shade from Pottery Barn.



I get asked a lot where I store my dishes, and the answer is really "all over." But this is one of the major dish cupboards in the house. For now, many of the white sets are kept together here. (For the grandkiddos that tassel  has for years now been one of the most fiddled with objects in the house!)












Now the cabinet looks good either open, or closed! I love the look of the open doors, but closing them protects so much better from dust.












So now you know the rest of the story... (kinda).

Thanks so much for stopping by!
 I'm looking forward to getting back to visiting you!
Happy Weekend!

Your cabinet itself with the leaded glass doors is beautiful, and I love the way your white china stands out against the wood. That ceiling tin on top is a beauty too.

Jacqueline your hutch is gorgeous with the white against the dark wood. I love a stack of dishes displayed and ready to use. The lace inside the doors looked so pretty too. Gorgeous lamp shade from Pottery barn and the shutters are perfect.
Glad you are feeling better.
Hugs!

This is such a lovely space - everything in it just creates an air of peace and coziness. I am trying to incorporate rooms such as yours into my own home, I love all of the changes you have made, and the many details which make up the fabric of your home. You are definitely a major inspiration for me and my decorating. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home.

Mixing up whites really work. I love your room decor!
Funny how something as simple as a tassel will become a plaything and something they will remember as they grow up.
Enjoy your weekend.

Hi J,
Well I just love poking around your sitting room!! So so many yummy dishes, pretty, pretty, pretty!!! I thought that was a new sparkly lamp too :-) I am always struck by the great difference the white makeover has had, and the pics are much brighter than last year too! Thanks for having me over:-)
Hugs,

Beautiful, Jacqueline. I've got dishes stashed in various places around here too. Would love to find a nice roomy buffet or cabinet like this to add to our sun porch for more dish storage. Love the collection of Anthro candle crocks. I've not bought any of those, but they always tempt me.

That's a beautiful china closet, Jacqueline. I love the touch of dark wood in that room, and the look of all your dishes. Oh! and I do love the way you've arranged your mantle (ledge) lately.
