Do any of you have that ONE thing that you can just never pass up, no matter how much you already have? I have a ton of collections and in most cases when I fill up an allotted space with a given collection, I generally stop buying whatever it is. That is not the case for ironstone! I can never resist a piece of ironstone - it's my ONE thing I can never walk away from.
The way I justify buying so much ironstone is that we actually do use it on a daily basis. Some of it sits on a shelf looking pretty, while the rest is functional. We've replaced all of our old plates, bowls and cups with nothing but ironstone and I love it!!!! The best part is that I find most of it at thrift stores for great prices!
I pretty much use it anyway I can all around the house, so today I'm sharing my collection with you! Some of it you've seen before, some you have not! :)
Here are my barn wood shelves I've shared before with the majority of my collection.
And my door shelf
I also use ironstone:
On our desk
In my craft room
And in the bathroom
And here are other pieces I have collected
Platters - which we use
These are the plates we use daily
Tureen - a gift from my boss!!
Such pretty details!
This tureen is my most recent purchase! I bought it from my friend Janet at White Barn Vintage!!
We use this bowl for our fruit and veggies
I think this is a butter dish? I've never seen another one like it before.
I think this might be an underplate to something. We use it as a spoon rest on the stove.
I'm even willing to part with some for my etsy shop:
I'm sure I'll have more pieces to share with you soon! What's your ONE thing?
