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.

  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!
