Pantry....or not.

Well  today I thought I would share my Pantry. Yes this shallow space is my pantry. I really never used it other than for keeping my magzines, So It dawned on me one day why not display my dishes. So this is what I have come up with so far. I am going to make it wider and taller and if in the end I sell this house the new owners can put the doors back on and use it as a pantry again.
This is a mixture of 4 different collections. The bluewillow my mother gave me. The J&G meakin which we used when I was a child and had recently finished collecting the missing pieces. The silver pieces I have been collecting along the way, and last but not least the white ironstone which I am still working on and I just love the way it looks.

                                        Bluewillow teaset with a mix of sugar and creamer in silver.

                                       An ironstone  soup tureen I paid $4.00 for .

One of my thrifting silver teaset.
