Unpacking

Today I opened up a box marked "KITCHEN" that we packed in the middle of June. It was like meeting up with old friends - the pie pans, the serving dishes, the vases. There is a really pretty old creamer that we got once at a garage sale, I think, that is the perfect green for the new kitchen. Too bad I don't have a matching sugar bowl. It kind of looks like fiesta ware, but it's a different color green, and has no markings on the bottom. I browsed ebay to see if there might be something that goes with it, but no luck today.

We are trying to "edit down" the amount of stuff that we put into the new cabinets. Right now it seems that we have so many extra shelves, but I'm sure that won't last. I'm trying to suss out where would be the "intuitive" place to put little-used items, and I'm not sure what I'm going to put in the lower corner cabinet that has the lazy susan shelves.
