When we had our kitchen remodeled a few years ago, the designer asked me for a list of the features I most desired in my new kitchen. At the top of the list was a plate rack.
Duh! I'm a dishaholic, remember?
I wanted it because of the way it looked, but I love it now because of the way it functions. It is so much easier to grab a few plates without having to open a cabinet door. That sounds like such a little thing, but it's true. And because our dishwasher is located immediately below the rack, it makes emptying the dishwasher easy, too. And finally, there is something just so very satisfying about slotting the dishes into the rack -- a place for everything, and everything in it's place.

I'm also linking Shelia's Heart of the Home Party. What could be more fun than taking some time to visit each other's kitchens, and maybe stop in for a little refreshment? :)
