Ya'll know about this time of the year I am itching to do something with a fall theme. I couldn't think of a better combination than white ironstone and straw bales.
This was that little vintage ironstone teapot I found at the thrift store on clearance for $2.50. Chari at Happy To Design emailed me and showed me the rest of the dishes that go with this teapot. I was amazed because I just happened to realize that this very set of dishes was down at our Salvation Army on clearance for $10! Chari said she purchased her dishes at Green Stamps! Do you guys remember those? I have bought things with Green Stamps when I first set up house. So, anyway I am a proud owner of 40 more pieces to this vintage ironstone set for just $10. I plan on using it in one of my Halloween tablescapes, more to come on that later.
Mom had been storing a little spice cabinet for me for years. I got it back recently and found this in one of the drawers! I'm keeping it! That is what I call interest!
Fall is so on my mind! I will be posting more about summer looks but, the hay bales are starting to multiply in my dining room!
The label on the ironstone: Designer Group pattern White Dover Ironstone
