I Heart Ironstone...

Just a friendly reminder that you still have a little bit of time left to enter your name in our giveaway! If you haven't already entered, see the previous post. You don't want to miss it! 

I am hopelessly in love with white. And it carries right over into dishes, too. I love white dishes, whether it's new pieces or the old vintage ironstone. I used to crave pretty patterns, lots of color! But the older I get, the more I appreciate the simplicity of white. It's just so clean. Delicate. Versatile. Timeless.
Molly refused to budge when I was taking this photo, 
I guess she really wanted to be featured today. :) Oh well, she does kinda add to the decor, huh?!

I was browsing through a local thrift shop when I stumbled on these beauties. All of these are Federalist Ironstone, and they were a whopping 45 cents each. Um, yes, I think I'll take them, Thank you! I'm really looking forward  to getting our open shelves built so I'll a pretty spot to display this little set. 

Ah, white. Beautiful beautiful white!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. And stay tuned, we'll be announcing the winner of the Cottage sign Monday morning!


  1. I'm with you...I L.O.V.E. white! I didn't "fall" from my Mother...for she LOVES white too! I've never been sorry that we chose a solid white pattern for my everyday dishes back in 1994, and keep adding to the collection of FUN white dishes...from thrift stores. :-)

    Love y'all's blog!

  2. P.S. I forgot to say I love your shelf and all your white dishes too! :-)
