Don't Hide Your Treasures!

One thing I love about organizing a house, is finding all kinds of unexpected treasures.  A few months ago I was helping out a friend 'refresh' her house and I came across all of her grandmothers old china wrapped carefully in newspaper.  It was completely tarnished and hadn't seen the light of day in years.  I put my daughter and her friend to work with their massive rubber gloves polishing that china over the sink like it was the greatest job ever!  Those sparkly pieces are now actually on display in my friend's home and they are beautiful.  Sure, she'll have to polish them every now and then, but don't you think her grandma would be proud?
