Antiques & Ironstone Finds

Saturday, August 9, 2014

While visiting my sister on the farm 
we decided to take a trip to town for a little antique shopping.

I have been searching for a little something for display on the kitchen island and this antique scale with brass bowls will be perfect.

I have already polished the bowl on the right
and once I regain the strength in my arm (it took a long time!) I will do the other one...

I really like the details...

Swans, geese, and ducks,
I have a thing for birds and scored these two primitives for a song.

One will have a home on top of the hutch in the kitchen...

I am looking forward to displaying Ironstone on the kitchen hutch
and was happy to find this gravy boat to go with my collection...

A sugar dish...

I did a little happy dance when I found this hen with chicks...

which happens to be a lamp...

I can't wait for September, this is when they say the kitchen will be finished
and boy am I ready to get our home put back together.

How about you, found any new treasures lately?

Join us each week for AMAZE ME MONDAY...

Let's Stay Connected...
