Ironstone~Old Lace~Wedding Cake Toppers!







With all the vintage ironstone I have been finding lately, I decided to rearrange a vintage cupboard in my diningroom to make room for it all! ~Sometimes with lack of space, you just have to sacrifice with which things you love the most, and what pieces can be put away for another display on down the road! I decided to put away my vintage aqua trimmed 8 piece place setting,  and rose printed homer laughlin dishes, as seen in the last photo, and make room for my vintage white ironstone.  Here are some before and after pictures! Ironstone is one of my favorites...I especially love the large pitchers, soup tureens, platters, and creamers. In with the ironstone,  I love displaying some of my collection of vintage wedding cake toppers, with it's old millnery flowers and combination of white and cream colors, it all comes together with lots of vintage lace! A while back, I found a huge box of gorgeous antique lace placemats, rolls of lace, runners, crocheted tablecloths etc..for only 10.00!  Finally, I put them to use in redecorating this old white cupboard and other areas of my diningroom! You can never have enough antique lace or old crocheted tablecloths! I just love this new look...who says white is not a color, there are so many different shades of white, I just love them all.....

Wow it is so beautiful! What a great job you did putting it all together! I have an old cake topper to, It was my aunts, I think it is around 40 to 50 years old. You did a great job!

First I want to say your header is absolutely beautiful. This picture is the best header ever!! After I comment I'm going back to stare at it for awhile.

You know after looking at your header I forgot what I just look at. I'll be back again. I do however remember you mentioning white. I love white too.. something I will never get sick of.

Have a Great Day-
