A few weeks ago, I presented my great ironstone finds.
I found four salad plates and bowls and later discovered that they matched a tureen I found . . .
~ ~ at another antique shop!
I placed these plates and bowls in an antique tool caddy . . .
~ ~ then placed that caddy on the dining room table.
As I was placing my ironstone in the caddy . . .
~ ~ I remembered that I had purchased a pretty soup tureen lid while antiquing in Tennessee.
Hmmmm….could that be the start of another collection?!!
By the beautiful looks of the lid, I can only imagine how wonderful the entire tureen was.
~ ~ maybe one day I will find the other piece!
Initially, I just placed stems of lavender in the caddy along with the ironstone . . .
On a trip to Trader Joe’s to buy some sunflowers, I saw these gorgeous roses for $4.99 . . .
~ ~ so off in the cart they went.
They initially went into a crystal vase . . .
~ ~ but I thought how great they would look in the antique tool caddy on the dining room table.
I love the combination of the lavender and roses . . . Hmmm Lavender and Roses . . .
~ ~ sounds like a great band!
My goal is to dry these roses as they are in the caddy.
I then realized that I have lavender throughout the great room too . . .
In bowls and urns . . .
In vignettes with ironstone . . . that I previously posted.
I so love the beauty of lavender and the smell is a bonus!!!
Wishing you all a most wonderful weekend filled with the things you love to do . . .
~ ~ with the ones you love!!!
