Vintage Finds

Wow, two posts in one week. That hasn't happened in a long time.

I thought I'd do a quick post and show you a few items I found this past weekend.

I need to get things packed up and put away.

It was a good weekend for treasure hunting. We found a lot of wonderful items.

The thing I got the most excited about though was...

IRONSTONE!

Wonderful pieces of Ironstone!

I was fortunate to get into quite a few pieces.

You know how it is. You pull up to a house, analyze it...is it run down, new neighborhood, newly remodeled etc...

Well, that's what I did with this one.

I didn't think I would find a thing.

It was a well kept home, it looked to have been updated.

When I walked into the kitchen though, my heart skipped a beat!

Ironstone...lots of Ironstone!

One of the reasons I was so excited is because this ironstone had my favorite mark on it.

I don't know why I like that mark, but I do and I've collected many pieces of it.

I also love the age spots that come with these wonderful vintage pieces.

There's just something about it!

I also found two wire baskets, possibly French so I was told by the owner's mother.

So, what I've learned again..."You can't judge a book by its cover!"

Have a great week!

That was a good catch! I share your love for white china and ironstone. For me it has to be all white or blue and white!
