For The Love Of Ironstone

We all love adding to our collections, don't we?  I have too many to mention!  But here are 2 of my favorites...ironstone and old seltzer bottles.  I know so many of us love ironstone-it's pretty easy to find, and usually fairly inexpensive.  I've gathered mine in a cabinet that my dad made for me using barnwood and an old window/door. I love how grouping together some simple items can make such a statement!
What are some of your favorite collections? I'd love to hear from you!
 I'm sharing this at  Knick of Time


  1. Ironstone is probably my all time favorite collection, especially ironstone pitchers. Your ironstone looks great in your charming cupboard.
    I'm your newest follower and hope you'll stop by, Mary Alice

  2. Mary Alice, thanks so much for your comment and for becoming a follower!! Your blog is amazing! (It looks like we have very similar decorating tastes) Now I am your newest follower! :)

  3. I have a collection of glass and silver salt and pepper containers - a recent collection though, because I wanted to display all my glitter in vintage S&Ps. I won't go into all the other crazy collections I have accumulated over the years (ahem *a whole basement full of stuff from a certain science fiction movie series*)

    Your cabinet looks great; love the green seltzer bottles!

  4. Maureen, I love the idea of glitter in vintage salt and pepper shakers! (I have a basement full of collections, too! That's my next project...)

  5. Hi Susan! Thanks for coming by Georgie Emerson! Good to connect with you again! Love your ironstone still my heart!!

    I have another blog at Swing by there too!


  6. I collect hands. Some of my students think that is weird, but since I find them, others must collect them too.

    I love the cabinet your dad made.

  7. Thanks for stopping by! (Did you notice the 'hands' in my cabinet? :)

  8. Oh my goodness I love your blog! I found you via Knick of Time Tuesday! I love this little cabinet that you've displayed your ironstone and seltzer bottles in. I have many collections as well, one of my favorite and newer collections is the little tomato pin cushions. I have them displayed in my craft studio.

  9. Susan, I have so many different collections it would be impossible to begin. LOL They didn't start out as collections, but somehow things begin to multiply around here. Your cabinet is wonderful. I like the idea of using an old door or window to make a cabinet. Very clever!
    Thanks for following along with HFTS. Yes, I do enjoy your blog so have added you to my sidebar. Hope to visit often........Sarah

  10. I have started at the beginning of your blog and am continuing my journey through it. I know I'm gonna lose a lot of time tonight on here. Everything is wonderful!


I love hearing from you!
