Thanksgiving Vignette of Ironstone

I have an area where I display the majority of my Ironstone.

The area needed some “Fallifying”.

Gathering some Thanksgiving inspired items and fall decor and set about creating this vignette.



Velvet pumpkins and a sweater pumpkin made by my friend Linda fill the ironstone tureen.


And real pumpkins too . . .



Love displaying my velvet pumpkins each year.




No Thanksgiving is complete without my cute Publix Pilgrims that are salt and pepper shakers.

I have missed shopping at Publix when I moved to NC; however, they are building some in NC now!!


Fall florals and pinecones fill this ironstone vegetable dish.



I recently placed this platter above the shelf . . . it’s a new piece . . .

~ ~ however, until I find the right ironstone platter, this piece does the job.

A chalkboard label on the plate, “Thankful” . . .


A napkin that I had monogramed last year . . . we, “Give Thanks” . . .


I am thankful to have had the opportunity to go on road trips with Mary Alice . . .

~ ~ and finding great bargains on ironstone!


And finding chippy stools to showcase them too!!




Truly enjoy this area that I can continue to gather new pieces.


Across from this area is another small vignette . . .


This is the latest piece of ironstone that I found while visiting Yvonne (StoneGable) . . .


I purchased this beauty for $12.00 !!!


A small bowl filled with lavender buds was replaced with this small pumpkin tureen.

This will be the last Fall Vignette for the year . . .

~ ~ as I am moving on to the Christmas decor.

Here are two other vignettes that I did this year:

The Foyer Fall Vignette:


I love decorating my French buffet for each season.

The Great Room Fall Table Vignette:


I have used these ceramic pumpkins for quite a few years . . .

~ ~ so next year it will be time for a bit of a change.

Hop on over and see more Thanksgiving/Fall Vignettes today. . .

~ ~ as I am partying today with these wonderful bloggers/friends.

Have a great day!!

  11. You have a wonderful ironstone collection now! I like how you interspersed Fall décor among the pieces. Glad to hear that you’ll be getting a Publix near you finally. I didn’t realize that there weren’t any in your area. I have a set of those pilgrim salt and pepper shakers too.

  12. Jeanette Price says

    I am always surprised with what you do with your collections. You always make them look so beautiful with all the right touches. I love the tureen and what a great buy too! Hope you have a wonderful day my friend!

  13. Your fall touches look beautiful with your ironstone. I miss Publix too after moving here from Florida. They are building one in Asheville and it will be done something this coming spring and I can’t wait!

  15. You have a beautiful ironstone collection and love how you have “fallified” this area! I did a final Thanksgiving vignette today for my post too! That was a fun day when we all got together. I used my new candle holders in my post! Come on over:):)

  16. The fall touches to your ironstone looks great! Don’t you just love the pilgrim salt and pepper shakers? I didn’t get any for the longest time because the closest Publix was 45 minutes away! They finally built one about 20 minutes away just a couple of years ago, but had stopped selling the salt and pepper shakers. 🙁 I found some at a flea market a couple of months ago for…wait for it…25 CENTS!!! They are proudly being used in my kitchen now! I would like to get some other Thanksgiving pieces to set out during the month of November. I will be on the look out at every yard sale and flea market I can get to!

  23. Hi Shirley, everything is gorgeous. Your ironstone is beautiful and a wonderful collection. I love the platter with the chalkboard message inside the wreath. This is a grand idea. I would love to try that too. I too decorate with books and have those same copies.
    Always an inspiration to visit Shirley. Have a nice weekend.

  24. You’ve got all your whites going, and I like very much the way you have added seasonal accents which make the white stand out all the more. Very nice collection.

  28. Oh Shirley it all looks so pretty!!

  29. Just when I think ironstone could not get prettier… and then you go and style it amazingly!!!! I love your decorating style and your eye for detail. Such beauty and bounty my dear friend!

  30. wow! I love that ironstone and the way you placed each piece is genius! Just beautiful.

  31. Very good decorating!

  32. Oh, you’ve got some beautiful ironstone pieces, Shirley! I never get tired of looking at white pieces, which may sound strange to some, but I love how they mix in with any time of year, season or holiday. Your vignette is a perfect example of how well it looks with the Fall colors. A simple change to Christmas colors would have it perfect for that, too!
