Dundee Marmalade Jar Vignette and an Ironstone Scalloped Bowl

Hope you all are making wonderful plans for the upcoming holiday weekend.

My hubby has a tournament and we have friends staying the weekend with us . . .

~ ~ so looking forward to a very busy and fun weekend.

Today, I wanted to show you something that I found while traveling with my hubby . . .

~ ~ in Huntington, West Virginia.

Huntington, a great town . . . that many of you have come to know, from the movie . . .

~ ~ “We Are Marshall” . . . if you have not seen this, it is a must to see with a box of Kleenex.

Ironstone Scalloped Bowl

I went to a few antique shops and found a few nice things and of course for a great price . . .

~ ~ however, this is my favorite piece that I found that day.

Ironstone Scalloped Bowl

I was just about to walk out of this shop when I spied a stack of bowls. . .

~ ~ and saw this pretty scalloped bowl on the top of the stack.

Turned it over and discovered that it was an ironstone bowl by Wm. Adams and Sons.

With the exception of a few aged brown spots, the bowl was perfect . . .

~ ~ however, there was no price tag on it.

The store owner asked if $15.00 was OK….I hesitated and said, “that would be fine” 🙂

Ironstone Scalloped Bowl

I was doing somersaults in my head . . .and a few cartwheels . . .

For now, I am using it as my fruit bowl in the kitchen.

I hope to gather more bowls and replace the covered glass ones in my kitchen . . .

~ ~ sounds like another field trip is in order.

English Creamery Crock

And talk about field trips . . .

When I arrived at Mary Alice’s home prior to one of our antique adventures . . .

~ ~ I was admiring the creamery crock that she had posted about earlier.

It is a beauty . . . she mentioned that it is for sale . . . for sale???

SOLD !!!

Some of you may have seen this jar too . . . it was for sale too . . . SOLD !!!

I love the rim of the crock. . . and its aged look.

I added this jar to the vignette that I had started.

Dundee Marmalade Jars/Breadboard/Vintage Scale

These two new items really enhanced the vignette I started a while ago . . .

~ ~ thanks to Mary Alice’s Etsy Shop!

Have a most wonderful Labor Day weekend . . . hoping that you will have more fun and less “labor” !!!

  19. Shirley, I love the crocks too! I recently bought a box of 18 Dundee Marmalade jars from a flea market. The seller was using these as drinking glasses in his home bar and had no idea they were collectible. Love the creamery crock and I have never seen one like that.
