My sweet husband converted a linen closet into this awesome dish closet. He put a strand of lights around the door that come on when the door opens. He does little things like that all the time and it makes me so happy.
I have been taking inventory of all my stuff for insurance purposes so I have spent this week taking photos of all the dishes, linens, crafting, gemstones and findings and crafting tools. I won't bore you will those specific photos, but to celebrate the Tablescaper's 3rd anniversary, here's part of where everything is stored.

After converting the linen closet, which I promptly filled, he offered to convert one side of the walk-in guest room closet. The closet is about 5 feet deep and had a rod on your left and right as you walked in. I placed a large storage unit in the center and hubby converted one side into shelves, leaving the other side with a rod for guests clothing (for now). This closet houses all my table decorations, candle sticks, platters, vases, cloches, and glassware.
My husband Grandfather's old desk in the guest room is home to most of my candles and napkins rings.
Other chests in the guest and dining rooms from our collective Grandmothers provides storage for more napkins, tablecloths and placemats.
Just wondering if any of you have thought about what might happen if you had to make a claim on your homeowners insurance for all your precious collections? I have been assured by my agent that they will pay for the home contents up to the limits we set, but I am very antsy about it since I have so much stuff that a normal homeowner wouldn't have. I mean, how many people would make a claims for the collections we all have? My plan is to take photos of all my dish, paper crafting, gemstones etc., so I have proof to back up the numbers I would turn in if something unfortunate were to happen. If any of you have thought about this and have a solution please pass it on to me.
Happy third anniversary to the Tablescaper and thank you hosting Seasonal Sundays!
