Ironstone love

I love me some ironstone!  I have no idea how it happened but it did.  It probably happened by looking at others' collections arranged so grandly.  Every auction, flea market, thrift store, and garage sales, I keep an eye out for ironstone.  I seem to be drawn to soup tureens, casserole dishes, and pitchers.  Funny thing is I do not cook anything nice enough to serve in my nicer pieces!

When I went to my usual weekly auction, I spied with my little eye some ironstone.  I thought for sure some others would think it was just as fabulous as I did, but luck was on my side! Check out all of these pieces that I snagged for $10!


Take a look at the beautiful detail on the casserole dish.


I picked up these terrific tea cups, sugar caddy, and cute ironstone cow creamers.


A little closer shot of my cows.


Finally, I picked up this great ironstone platter for $1 at the flea market.


Needless to say, I felt like I hit the ironstone jackpot last week.  I wonder if I will ever find that perfect hutch to display them in.  A girl always has to have a dream, right?!

  1. Hi Julie,
    I know what you mean about learning to love ironstone. I think I'm drawn to the restful white with the old charm. I'll have to start watching for it when I'm out thrifting.
