As you can see, I stuff all the extra serving pieces and odd sherbet glasses in the depths of the armoire. Platters, gravy boats, you name it--it's in there.
What you won't see--plastic versions of the real stuff. I don't have room to store casual AND fancy, so I use a mix of better things every day.
Some of it's better than others, naturally, but none of it's too valuable to be used.
Tracy desperately wants to create a home for her crockpot.
