A dusting of snow and Ironstone Inspirations

What a beautiful morning. I love waking up to snow. It's been too warm here. It hasn't felt like winter and it's too early to be getting spring fever. ALTHOUGH...I am thinking about a new garden. Just a little something I'm tossing around in the back of my mind for now.

The white stuff inspired me to go through my files and post a few of my favorite pieces ironstone.  If you know me, then you know how much I LOVE white ironstone.  So country looking and old.  I can't pass a piece without admiring it....and usually buying it (if it's with my budget).
a pudding mold with bird motif....my newest piece

 Wish I had all those ~ gorgeous!!

love the lily of the valley or maybe bluebells on this handle-less cup... a nice find.

How happy I felt the day I found this teeny little pitcher with a bunny on it....that's two birds one stone there (smiles).

What favorite collections inspire you??

Happy weekend hugs ~

I have some ironstone I always pull out of the basement this time of year. The white is just so crisp and clean. Love the arrangements...make great inspiration!

Hi Jenn, love the ironstone....in fact I just love the white decorating.....I am trying to get rid of some "color" and add more whites/tans.

You have some very nice pieces of Ironstone. I love that little bunny pitcher, very cute!

It's been too warm here too. We actually got up to 65 yesterday and was walking around in short sleeves! I'm not complaining though.

Have a delightful weekend~

Absolutely Stunning Jenn...
This past Christmas my desires were my Old Silver pieces I've collected mixed with shells in old Silver Sugar Bowls. A dusting of silvered small pine cones and LOTS of White candlelight in Glass & old Silver. It had a Romantic and Warm feel through my home.
so glad to see we share our love for WHITES...

Thinking of you this New Year...

Lovely whites Jenn! If truth be told, I have a weakness for old pewter, but you have indeed tempted me with white ironstone....Hmmmm.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful pieces and inspirations.
