Show and Tell

Here are a few of the thrifted items I found yesterday. This sewing basket was pretty beat up, but I liked the top.
I thought these would look nice next to each other. One is winter and the other is fall.Now I just need the other two seasons.
Here is a whole collection of items. Some real silverware, in an ironstone dish, a small glass for Miss Leone ( she calls these her big girl glasses), a Japanese bowl, 2 little glass bowls, 9 white plates, a mug in a pretty blue color, candles, and a vintage cookie press.
I thought this little rocking chair was too cute. And behind it another lamp I'm 'testing'. It is a very pale mint green.
This is what is stamped on the bottom of the above dish. I know nothing about ironstone - is this a kind that people collect?


Kelli doesn't have her Show and Tell post up yet, but I'm sure she will later, so go check it out!

Come to my home page and check out my little baseball players too! I'm getting lonely here ; )


Have a nice day!
Mrs H


Edit - My goodness I am a whole day ahead of myself! Check out Kelli's post tomorrow ; 0

The little rocking chair is adorable. I have so much fun thrifting, but I'm running out of room around my house to put any new goodies. :)

LOL I was ahead of myself a couple of weeks ago with Show & Tell...I thought it was Friday and all the time it was Thursday! hehe Isn't it wonderful the treasures one can find at the thrift shops..makes you wonder why anyone would want to get rid of certain items but then it's their loss and our gain:-) xo

Kelli said...

What wonderful finds, Mrs. H! The sewing box is so pretty and since I love anything to do with the four seaons I'm loving your fall and winter pictures!
The little rocking chair is so sweet. All your treasures are making me want to go to some yardsales tomorrow morning. ;0)
Have a lovely weekend!
