What is it about tarnished silver and old ironstone that is so inviting?
I think it speaks of a simpler era.
It's pretty to look at and it warms up a room. It's inviting and it's homey.
It says welcome, come on in.
It's heavy in the hand,
solid, yet feminine.
I came across this amazing stack of ironstone in perfect condition and it was priced at 25 cents per plate. I bought all eleven plates.
When I walked up to the cashier to pay for them she said, "these things are so heavy, I just gave away a whole box of them. I never did like them."
I had to pick up my jaw off of the floor. She didn't like them? Too heavy? What?
I just couldn't imagine not liking them. Ironstone to me is just about as pretty as the finest china.
In fact, I might even prefer it over the finest china.
Hope you're having a great weekend!
