Rearranging Dishes in Kitchen China Cabinet

I have more time to spend inside the house now since we have installed a sprinkler system in the yard and I don't water the garden as much. I only water the plants on the porch and around the pool now.

I decided to rearrange the dishes in the kitchen china cabinet.

Here is the "Before".

and the "After"

Here is the left row of the cabinet. You will see an enlarged view of each shelf below from the top to the bottom.

Sterling silver "State flowers" salt cellar spoons, Spode's "Buttercup" dishes and a copper bowl.

Some yellow plates and a hen topped bowl server, I just bought yesterday from TJ Maxx. John and I made a trip to Baton Rouge Saturday, to buy each other a Wedding anniversary present and I told him to just take me to TJ Maxx, and of course, I filled my cart, lol.

Silver plated EPN with Victorian figural bird finial set (Note to myself: I need to polish them soon). Blue and white pottery tea set.

Hammersley's "Bird of Paradise" dish set and a chicken cloche I also got as part of my TJ Maxx "anniversary present" shopping spree.

This is the middle row of the cabinet. The succeeding pictures will again show an enlarged view of each shelf.

A brown and white transferware soup tureen I just bought from Richard of "My Old Historic House", oyster plates including a Limoges set, bee sugar and creamer server set, its teapot that I am still hunting for, salt cellar with tiny spoons, some ceramic roses and books.

"Winterling" Coffee or tea set and Spode "Emma's Garland" tray and tea set. I have the coordinating plates kept in the foyer's console cabinet, and a polish "Warvel" tea set. I have the complete dinnerware set stored in a china cabinet in the dining room.

I do not know what the pattern and maker is on the dessert plates and the tea set on the left. The tea cups in front of it says "I don't go to the gym, I garden", which is me:-) . The one on the right is a tea set bt Fitz and Floyd "Bellacara". I am still on a lookout for a creamer to complete the set.

Staffordshire's brown and white transferware "Royal Mail", some sterling silver tea spoons, Limoges black and white transfer salad plates and a rooster egg server.

This is the row on the right. The next photos that follow will show an enlarged view of each shelf.

The top displays our Johnson Brothers "Old Britain Castles" set with a lidded server I bought from Nancy of "Nancy's Daily Dish" and a swan salt cellar.

More of the red and white "Old Britain Castles" transferware, brown and white transferware cruet set and Johann Haviland "Brown Rose" tea set.
The rest of the "Brown Rose" dish set is stored in the dining room china cabinet.

Next is a Fleur de Lis tea set I bought in New Orleans, a silver plated bon bon tray, a tureen with a blue bird and a dessert serving set.

The bottom shelf consists of my Tirschenreuth Bavarian "Rosedale" dish set.

This is how the cabinet looks like now with the doors closed.

I did not change anything on the top of the cabinet. It still has some soup tureens, our sterling silver tea and coffee set. Polish pottery fluted bowl servers and others.

And that concludes the tour of the kitchen china cabinet. I am such a dishaholic that this is only 1 of my 7 china cabinets and now I am organizing our walk in closet in the garage so I can easily access the dish sets there.
