Collections: Hope Chest - In the Hope Chest

So what do I have in my hope chest?

As I've said, my hope chest is packed! I don't think I can get another thing in it. Plus the closet and the attic have some things, too. 

Kitchen towels, potholders, plates, an ice cream scoop, a blender, cookie cutters, platters, a recipe box, mixing bowls, etc. are in the hope chest already.

A few weeks ago, I went through my hope chest to try to make more room. I didn't accomplish anything since I have been taking advantage of all the nooks and crannies as I put in a new item. But I'm so glad I went through it because I found some things that I had forgotten I had! Yay!

I found seven packs of cupcake papers. :) These are so easy to store...I think I might even add a few more to the pile, too. 

I had not forgotten about this. This red pitcher I got on clearance at Target for $2.48! This was the inspiration for the room changes, too.

A few things I was thrilled to find were these items. A beautiful pie plate, a small platter, and big serving bowl.

I think I need to go through my hope chest more often!

Still time to enter the giveaway ~here~.

Emma's is packed too! Rachel said she would rent space in hers, if Emma needed more storage! Lol!

You have lovely things! What a beautiful home you'll have one day!
