Oh white ironstone, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

One...I love the way you look on chippy cupboards.

Did I mention this Country Living magazine image makes me swoon????

Two...I love the way you look when grouped en masse.

Three...I love the way you look all by yourself.

Four...I love the way your European Faience cousins look.

The detail is so lovely.

Your Italian counterparts are also capable of drawing me in...

Love that handle...

OK, I admit, I was having a difficult time coming up with a White Wednesday post, but truly, it is one of my most favoritist posts of the week, so I had to do some rummaging through my own photos and from the internet.  I am working extra days this week at my real job, so playing photographer will have to wait for now, but I will, one of these days, do a post about my small but wonderful antiique white ironstone collection.  It makes my heart sing just to look at. 

CHANGE OF SUBJECT ALERT (my husband seriously wishes I would make that announcement when we are chatting with one another!):  In case you were crushing on my antique grain sack stockings at Christmas but you didn't get one, pat yourself on the back for being so patient and waiting.  Just today, I lowered the price on my remaining stockings by 40%.  Yes, you read that right, 40%.  They were reasonably priced at $32, but with the sale, they are $19.20.  That's a pretty smoking deal, you've gotta admit.  No coupon code needed, just go to my site here and pick your favorite(s). 

Go on over to see Kathleen at Faded Charm for more White Wednesday posts.  You will be SO glad you did.  

Until next time,

Pin It!

  7. Great collections...those picture inspire. thanx for sharing...tiff

  8. Around these parts, my family refers to it as a "squirrel" moment...or "Dug" as my daughter lovingly calls me!
    Love ironstone, but I only keep what I will actually use. It's aptly named 'cause it's virtually unbreakable...unless carried to a show to sell!

  9. Yes, there are so many ways to love ironstone! Especially collecting them one piece at a time. Looking forward to seeing your special collection some day. :)
    Happy WW Judy,
