Behind Closed Doors



No one knows what goes on behind closed doors...


Hello, Dear Ones! I just can't help singing~ I'm so excited! Mr. Precious retired in January and we've been so busy!! We've been painting and trying to get our home organized - we purged, garage saled and now I'm trying to make neatness in my home.

This is the end of the hall upstairs - all painted and fresh. The door directly in front of you holds fabric and sewing supplies and...

this is the door, well, what's behind this door is what I've gotten so excited about! You see Mr. Precious knows I love my dishes and I have them scattered all over the house - in the kitchen, breakfast room, dining room, den, sun porch and bathroom. Yes siree - the bathroom. So he suggested I take this linen closet and turn it into a dish closet! Yay! I didn't know that retiring would make Mr. Precious so very smart! :)

Look! I've got dishes in here!! I have an official Dish Closet! Woo Hooness!!

Fallish dishes and some big autumn pieces are on the top shelf. I didn't have to put the shelves in - they were already here. Oh, the joyness!

Then bunches and bunches of transferware...oh, did I say joyness? :) I think I did but I'll say it again - oh, joyness!

Then more and more and more dishes! This is so thrilling, isn't it? Please make me happy and say it pleases you too! :)


Then a few more dishes! This is so great!


On the bottom shelf I've placed a bunch of my large candlesticks. On the floor I placed a little Target wood shelf and placed some of my chargers on it with more candlesticks on the floor! I'm loving this!


Oh, and look what I did all by my tiny self! I put labels on the shelves so I would know which sets of dishes were on each shelf! Oh, I'm just so talented, can't you tell? You know I'm kidding!

Stacked! Yes siree, and sweeties I'm not talking about my most tiny gorgeous body (again, I do hope you know I'm kidding), but my dishes! Stacked and all so very neat.

Candlesticks and chargers! Don't you just love this stuff! :) Oh, I do.

I'm thrilled, excited, jazzed, wired and each day I come up here a couple of times and open the door to look at my dishes all neat and orderly! Does this dish closet hold all my tiny dishes? Oh, no, no, Nannette, it does not! I still have more dishes in the kitchen, breakfast room, dining room, den, sun porch and bathroom. Yes siree - still got some in the bathroom. But now I have some needed freed up space! What am I going to do with all my freed up room? Buy more dishes? Well, I just might. But now I'm just trying to get organized.

Now I realize this was not a very cute post so I'm leaving you with a little snap of my cute little Chloe Dawn. Mr. Precious is holding her tiny arms down and she looks captive but she's not and she just loves this stuff! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'm joining Our Dear Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday,
I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Behind Closed Doors

My baby makes me proud
Lord, don't she make me proud
She never makes a scene
By hanging all over me in a crowd
'Cause people like to talk
Lord, don't they love to talk
But when they turn out the lights
I know she'll be leaving with me

And when we get behind closed doors
Then she lets her hair hang down
And she makes me glad that I'm a man
Oh, no-one knows what goes on behind closed doors

My baby makes me smile
Lord, don't she make me smile
She's never far away
Or too tired to say: "I want you"
She's always a lady, just like a lady should be
But when they turn out the lights
She's still a baby to me

'Cause when we get behind closed doors
Then she lets her hair hang down
And she makes me glad that I'm a man
Oh, no-one knows what goes on behind closed doors
Behind closed doors
