A Bit of Vintage Shopping

Since we downsized I have tried to cut back on my shopping and collecting. Really. :-)  I just don't have the space I had when we were in the larger house. 

However...I did pick up a couple of pretty items from a local vintage shop, Arrow Vintage, over the summer. The shop is on Instagram if you want to take a peek. 

Look at this sweet ironstone pitcher I found from Arrow Vintage!  I am struck by the extra long graceful spout on this one. 

In addition to the pitcher, I snagged a couple of pretty Churchill plates a few weeks ago. I am not sure how I will use the two plates, but I am sure there are great possibilities. Being very modestly priced I had to say "sold" and bring them home. 

Perfect plates for cookies, brownies, or a fun vignette. 

And one more thing...

I have a few new linen tea towels, thanks to my parents. They were my birthday gifts this year! For some reason I have a weakness for pretty linen tea towels. 

This is an English tea towel, and will fit in nicely with my other English pieces. I will not use these to wipe down the kitchen counters! The fine linen is exqusite.

I will try for some better photos...and show you my other tea towels also.

So much pretty! And I had to share with you. :-)

One more ironstone pitcher for my collection...
I just could not help myself.

Hello, I'm Sheila and my house is a giant art project! I enjoy creating an environment where my family can feel safe, secure, and loved. We are empty nesters learning to slow down and enjoy life.


  1. Great finds! There's always room for more ironstone and blue & white!

  2. I love Ironstone and it can't be beat for its simplicity. I gave my whole collection of blue and white to my daughter and she has it hidden away somewhere. Just not her thing, I guess.
    Hope you have a great weekend. xo Diana

  3. My time is coming soon to downsize, but I too would find room for those vintage treasures!

  4. Lovely new pitcher and tea towel! I have a weakness for both myself... I'll be posting up the nice ironstone pitcher I found at HomeGoods last week soon! <3

    Enjoy your weekend,
    Barb :)

  5. Great finds! Sometimes it can be hard to help yourself when you find so many pretty things!
