My name is Danielle and I have a problem, I collect outrageous amounts of dishes. Tea cups, plates, platters, tea pots, pitchers, glasses, you name it and I probably have 5....or 16. 

Any extra space in my kitchen is occupied by some type of dish, it's getting a little out of control.

I have these dreams of big dinner parties and summer bbq's and therefore I need 16 of everything. 16 salad plates, 16 glasses, 16 bowls, 16 plates and some of these I have a set of 16 for every month. 

Are you sensing a theme yet? 

16 is the magic number in my brain (I have no idea where this came from) and if I lose one piece I will give the entire set away.

In future house I will have an entire area of the basement dedicated to my dish collection. It's going to be the beautiful. 

This is only a small part of my collection. I am currently working on getting it all organized, which means the shuffling of all storage. Yeah it's going to take awhile. 


  1. Lol, you sound like me and my mom. We are major dish hoarders. :)

  2. I love it! I've been wanting new dishes.. And I've been wanting a variety of pretty tea cups/coffee cups too. I'm particular though about where they are made so it can make the hunt a little more of a hunt!

    1. I totally understand! Except my thing is the way they look and I have the hardest time finding what I've created in my head.
