Lovin' Me Some Ironstone

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. We have just wrapped up the second day of our spring garage sale here at Coastal Charm...whew...sure glad that's all finished:) I will say...I am really happy with all the stuff that left our nest and best of all...all the money that I now have to spend...oh happy day! Now when I go out pickin' at garage sales, thrift store and flea markets...I am always looking for IRONSTONE...just let me say...I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! I try really hard to part with some of it and sell it in my booths, but it's not easy for me to let it go. Okay, I might have an IRONSTONE problem, but let's face it, it could be a lot worse, if you know what I mean.
                                   Let's see what I've got,

         Now I just had to have this the shape and size!
           Some of my collection...I have more in the dining room.
                 My $4 teapot...with the would have been
                                        more like $60.
                      Cute handle...don't ya think?
                                    Tiny $3 creamer.
                                  Adding to the collection.
                                     Since I am so nice...

              I will be selling all of if you are
                             Ironstone will be in stock soon!
              Has anybody read this book? My daughter gave it
                  to me months ago and I have still not had the
                                      chance to start it.
You just can't go wrong...with IRONSTONE!!!!

"Oh Yes", I share your passion! Some followed me home this week. AND if it's a creamy white it gets to ride up front with me AND if it's creamy white with a raised pattern of creamy white "It also rides up front BUT also wears a seat belt"!
Your book looks GOOD, I'm going to have to LOOK IT UP!!!
Thank you for showing off your BEAUTIFUL GOODIES!
Have a fun weekend,

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Beautiful pieces, and yes I love ironstone too. I need to have a garage sale, so maybe soon. Hugs, Marty

Katie @ Wildwood Creek said...

Beautiful ironstone! One Thousand Gifts is a must read. It will change the way you look at each day.

Serendipity Refined said...

I share your love of ironstone...and apparently your "far less expensive without the lid" teapot love as well ;). I've not read the book but look forward to your thoughts after your read it. Have a glorious weekend! xo

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

I'm loving your ironstone, too! Wish I lived closer. I have not read that book, but it looks interesting. Since I started blogging, I cannot find the time to read books.

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Your collection is amazing and I love how you have it all displayed. I haven't seen that book but the cover looks intriguing -- I was just thinking today when I drove past the library that I REALLY need to find some time to sit and read a good book!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love your collection, Linda! I don't have Ironstone, I just like the white pieces and I especially like little pitchers or creamers and sugar bowls. My newest thing I look for at the thrift, antique and flea marts are tureens. Surprisingly, the Goodwills I've been to here in Ohio and back when we lived in NY had some nice ones and they were all in great shape.

Fabulous collection! Love the hydrangeas setting in the jug. The teapot I adore. That would have a place of honor in my home for sure.

Have a great eve ~

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Linda you have a beautiful collection of ironstone! Love that last pic!!

Alaina said...

I am sharing your love for ironstone, dang why can't I live closer. I have built my collection by getting those teapots without the lids too. I love finding an imperfect platter at a great price, it shows use.

Liz Snowden said...

Oh I wish I were closer! Love me some ironstone...but I love any white/cream pottery, so not picky. Have a great weekend!

WhiteWhispers2u said...

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Shannon Fox said...

Pam@OurAdventuresInHomeImprovement said...

Congratulations on the garage sale! You really have some great ironstone.

I switched to all white dinnerware a few years back, easy to mix and match!

Rosemary@villabarnes said...

Not only have we had shows on the same weekend, but garage sales too. lol I had a three day sale that ended yesterday. It's like a weight lifted. I love ironstone too, so I completely understand your problem, Linda. Great collection.

Well they say the first step in overcoming an addiction is admitting the problem!

I am an Ironstone addict - go ahead, say it! But be proud and keep on collecting!


Sonya Badgley said...

Hi Linda,
I LOVE your ironstone! I wouldn't want to part with any of it either.
As for the book "One Thousand Gifts", you MUST read it! I promise it will impact your life-it did mine and so many I know that have read it. I would love to hear what you think about it after you're done.
Have a wonderful week,

Whimzy Thyme said...

I also love the ironstone and love all the wonderful colors of Pyrex. The new stuff can't begin to compare with the vintage. Honestly I can't even remember to last time I was at a retail kitchen store (he he).

Love ironstone but LOVE LOVE LOVE the book!! You must make time to read it. :)


You know I love it! It's so timeless! You have a beautiful collection, wish I lived closer.

Creations By Cindy said...

Ironstone is always a PLUS! One Thousand Gifts....I have to read this book a little at a time. I read a little and then I just chew on it and soak in it. It is too much for my little pea brain to handle all at once. And honestly, for me...It is best with this type of book to just read a little and let soak. YES it will change the outlook on life. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Heaven's Walk said...

Yummy yummy yummy white ironstone! Love it all, Linda! Oh....and once you start that book, you won't be able to put it down. It's amazing. It's incredible. And it's life changing. Ann is an amazing author. :)

Wish I was local....collecting ironstone is addictive! :) I'm sure it will be running out of your shop.

The book....fabulous. Start it will want each chapter to sink in. :)

Laurel Stephens said...

I love all the soft colors of your features this week; so pretty!

Janis@All Things Beautiful said...

Ironstone is so beautiful! I would love to start collecting it! Your display really shows it all off!! I do LOVE the handle on that $4 teapot!

Kathy said...

I do love me some ironstone, wish I lived closer. Ironstone just says it all and goes with every setting occasion. Good luck with your yard sale, you have some great items. This is certainly that time of the year to have one, I wish I was in that purging mood. Thanks for hosting, Kathy

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

I totally agree, I love ironstone too! You have a lovely colection!

Sandy said...

Beautiful collection. I love the way you have it displayed. I love ironstone and only have one pitcher. Haven't started collecting it. Ironstone goes with everything! Right now I'm adding to my Fire King collection.

Sandy said...

Oh, one more comment. Your book looks really good. Just read some comments about it now I need to go look it up on!
