A beautiful set of ironstone dishes. 8 place settings for $10.00~ YAY!
I love old dishes, and even though these are not beyond vintage,
they are a reproduction of older ironstone.
They are in great condition and will serve us well.
I thought this little bowl was so charming. It has that same beautiful ivory color as my new ironstone. It will be perfect for serving vegetables or a small side dish.
This solo teacup was so beautiful that I couldn't pass it up. I has such simple lines that it shouldn't be difficult to find a little saucer to match. The cup is so thin and delicate, when you hold it up to the light, you can see right through it.
I find such pleasure in finding usefulness in old and forgotten items. There are so many reasons that I seek to reuse these treasures.
First is the cost ~ I sometimes feel guilty paying the minute costs of these things, I get over the guilt quickly :~) also, I think that reusing what has aready been created, is such as vital way of reducing the weight of mass production on God's precious creation.
I have such a fascination with old things. Each treasure has a story, it's like being transported back in time, imagining what life would have been like for a mama like me generations ago.
I pray that you all have a blessed and productive Wednesday. In God's Love, Tami
