The China Cabinet

I recently switched out my Christmas dishes in the china cabinet for some of the dishes I have been collecting. For nearly 12 years I have kept the Christmas dishes on display year round, but I decided to do something different for a change.

I added to my white dish collection during the past week and will show you the newest additions later.

I love the tea cups given to me by my SIL! Thanks M!

The china cabinet is a work in process and after I saw these pictures I am planning a better display for the top. Of course there are still plenty of chickens!

Your display is very pretty. It would not be you if there were not a few chicken items here and there. :)
