Marian ParsonsAntiques, Favorite Finds, Ironstone

Last week, I acquired a few fun things.  One of my “pickers” brought me a load of ironstone (plus I brought in some pieces from my house) and I found some goodies at a local antique shop.

Here’s a video showing everything…

This is the small blue & white pitcher I mentioned in the video…

Isn’t it so sweet?

After studying it a bit, I thought it looked familiar.  I matched the hallmark on the bottom with some plates and bowls I have…

…and they are a match!

So, I’m keeping that piece!  I even found the matching sugar jar on Etsy and snapped it up.

I also picked up a pretty stoneware bowl…

…and a teeny, tiny dress form.  I named her Liz Marie, because, well, Liz Marie is teeny, tiny.

It’s a simple dress form, but it has some pretty details that drew me to it.

And she looks fetching in an MMS tee!

And my favorite find is this antique parasol…

It’s one of those pieces that makes me smile.

Especially when it’s opened up.  It’s so beautiful and delicate and the details are just lovely.

Hard not to smile at that.
