I have a bad habit. Ironstone is my very favorite thing to collect and I’m much better at buying it than I am selling it. Now, if you have shopped my tent at the Lucketts Market, you know that I do get rid of a lot, but I keep a lot, too. I recently hit one of my favorite local shops at just the right time and bought a bunch of ironstone. I’m selling a few pieces, but these are the ones I’m keeping…
I can’t resist a pretty tureen or casserole, especially one that”s different from any I currently have…
…and I sort of have a thing for sugar jars.
I may have kept a pitcher, too. Yes. I did. And a couple of lids.
Did you notice the cool wooden pedestal cheese board under the tureen? That’s actually going to be featured on Decor Steals soon, so keep an eye out for it.
I can’t keep everything they send me, but I’m keeping this!
Tomorrow, we set out to Arizona and Colorado to see the Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountains and more amazing sites. I’m so excited. If you want to see some pictures and updates along the way, follow me on Facebook and/or Instagram. (I’m Miss Mustard Seed on both.) I actually just started really using my Instagram account and I’m enjoying it so much. So, if you want to see little snapshots of my life (like the pile of pants I got rid of because they were too big or Cheerios cemeted to my butcher block counters), then follow along.
Speaking of Decor Steals, the two winners of the $50 shop credits are…
Jacalynn Dewey and Aleshia (aleshia01)
I have some good news for those who are always reminding me to announce winners. I’ve hired an assistant who’s going to help keep me straight and she’ll make sure the winners are announced when I say I am going to announce them. She has her work cut out for her! I’ll talk more about hiring an assistant in a few weeks. As an avid DIYer, it was really tough for me to take that step and finally, after 4+ years, get some help.
