Jackpot!!!!


I had to take my youngest to football orientation this morning and on the way home stopped at a barn sale near my house. It an okay sale that I remembered going to last summer and nothing appealed to me much except for some ironstone pieces that were just way out of my budget. Well one year later the piece that I wanted and couldn't afford was there...again, but this time marked down to $15!!!!!!! This tureen is huge too and ohhh the details!!!!! I know that I am probably boring you all with my ironstone posts but it is my most favorite collection and when I find a piece, such as this, I have to tell the world!!!! This little cutie my aunt gave me a few months ago. I assume it's either a child's piece or a salesman's sample.



This is definitely a child's piece!!!!One big happy ironstone family!!!!I also wanted to share with you what Cari from CariKraft made for me. When I saw it I fell in love with it. Something about it just reminded me of me and my husband!
I think maybe it was the saying because I still love holding hands with him...
...and plan to for the next 50 years...at least!
Thanks Cari!!!

I love the new piece!!! Nothing is better and fresher looking than old ironstone pieces. The marks on the underside are often times fabulous in itself!! Great job! Love the little child's piece - rare find!!
