Organizing the Kitchen: Where do I keep my stuff?

G'day sweet friends. Welcome to Natasha in Oz, my little bloggy home Down Under!

This week I have been busy trying to do a bit of a tidy up of my cupboards so that I can show you where I keep my kitchen "stuff!" I don't really have too many dishes so my home tour shouldn't take too long!

Our every day dishes are Spode Blue Italian Transferware and I keep them in a drawer in our kitchen.

My 2nd set of dishes are our Christmas dishes which are kept on the bottom shelf of the cupboard where we keep our everyday mugs and glasses.

Our Wedding china, Noritake Château, is kept in our antique Chinese sideboard which is in our dining area. Later on I would love to show you my very first Tablescape using this china.

I also keep platters and other dishes in this sideboard.

My my tea cup collection is also kept in our dining area and I also display some of them under my cloche. I love decorating with my cloche!

One of my favourite storage ideas is found in our kitchen. When we renovated our kitchen I made sure we used every available space to store things. This is where I keep my slow cooker, sandwich press, food processor and hand held blender. I love this cupboard!

I also made sure that my silverware could be stored neatly.

My tea towels have their own special drawer, right next to my knife block...only small visitors who love drying dishes will find the sharp knives! I think I am safe!

The original post can be found here. It was nearly Summer here in Australia when I first started blogging so since it is nearly Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, I thought it might be nice to share my tablescape again today!

I will end this home tour with a Tune...A shameless plug for my Tuesday Tune meme that I host each weekend. If you would like to join in and share your favourite music please do!



The Ten Tenors (also known as TTT) are an Australian musical ensemble.



Formed in 1995, they spent much of their early career Touring small towns and universities. They didn't come to the attention of the international community until they made an appearance at the Eurovision Grand Prix de la Chanson in Kiel, Germany. The Ten Tenors' ability to mix classical, rock, and opera with a distinctly Australian flair has resulted in award-winning Albums like One Is Not Enough, Larger Than Life, Tenology, and 2006's Here's to the Heroes.

I hope you enjoy their version of Il Gladiatore.



Best wishes and thanks so much for taking the time to come and visit! I so appreciate it!

  13. As a fellow blogger I really enjoyed seeing how you managed to combine all those themes. That is some kind of genius.

    Love the silverware drawer, we could use something like that! I am going to have to show that to my hubby.
    You have a very pretty kitchen!

  14. Hello Natasha, I love the neat, organized way you have of storing. Your kitchen is much to be envied! Thanks for letting me peek and dream.

  16. Hello Natasha!!

    Brussels calling!! You have beautiful dishes & cups, etc. You are certainly tidy in the kitchen,..as it should be, of course!

    Beautiful ceramics & lovely pictures too!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wowee Natasha! I am soooo impressed by your kitchen and your AMAZINGLY organised STORAGE!!!
    I think I am in love with your noritake china. LOVE IT.

    And I thought you were joking when I first saw the photo of your "everyday" china in it's fancy holder...?!!!
    OMG.
    I would be ASHAMED to show ANYBODY the inside of my cupboards and my pitifully boring dinnerware.
    Love the tablescape too.
    GORGEOUS.

  18. Ok Natasha...I am going to have to start posting my songs to your meme. I don't know if you have seen my music blog, Songs of Home, but you might like some of my music. I actually usually post my songs on Sundays as they are devotional or family oriented or just about life in general. I've been writing since I was 11. What a neat idea!


    Your photos of your tablescapes are AWESOME! I love them. The diningroom table using shells as napkin weights is my favorite. So pretty!

    PS. I took pix this morning for a post for Thursday where I explain tablescapes to my readers and just took some extra photos today. I felt like Monday I just didn't explain what I'd learned from Maria Killam clearly enough. I got lots of questions about my thrift store finds too. It will be posted on Thursday..so I guess I can join that group too. How fun!

  21. Love seeing all your china Natasha - and how neat and tidy your drawers are!! Also how nice to see a little bit of Summer in your table arrangement from last year - so pretty. x

    ReplyDelete
  22. I forgot to add that I love the pop of pink that those napkins bring to your wonderful tablescape! You don't usually see that colour used with shells but I really like it!

  23. Fun to see where you store your dishes! Wasn't it good of The Tablescaper to make us clean up our drawers! LOL! I have never seen those organizer/divider things you show with your plates in the first drawer - they would be so handy as the dishes wouldn't move forward when you open the drawer! Great tupperware collection/storage too!

  38. You've really put a lot into one post! I'm really impressed with your storage of food ... flour, sugar and popcorn. I love the pretty blue dishes too. Thank you for visiting my blog. You get on the "Dean's List" for maintaining a certain grade point average for a semester in college. Every semester you get a fresh start to try again. My son was on the Dean's List just a couple of times during the years (he just graduated as a pharmacist) but the coursework was so difficult, we know how hard it was to keep those grades up. Great post and I'll be back to visit!

  73. Natasha,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Love how organized your cabinets are. We redid our kitchen 3 yrs ago, and my cabinets started out organized. I've kept up a few, but more & more stuff find their way there. It's time for a purge again.

    I would really love to find a sideboard. A place I could keep table decor & maybe a second set of dishes. I also love your Christmas dishes. I have cobalt blue dishes that I love, but I would really like to get some white ones.

    ReplyDelete
  74. your kitchen is very well thought out. Love the drawers for the spode and silverware best.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Okay - you are inspiring me - I thought my cabinets and drawers were organized (they pretty much are) but I see I have some areas I've let slide and you've given me the inspiration to finish them off!

    Thanks so much! Enjoy working around your very organized and inspirational kitchen (another "Mom Cave" location in the house!)

    Linda

  76. Wow, so impressive. Love it. I love your table setting and collection of dishes. You are so organized and there is so much to learn from you.
