  1. I just love old crocks…they are most definitely one of my favourite things! And, although you can never go wrong with white as it’s just classic, I really am in love with the yellow-ware. I soooooo enjoyed seeing all of these beautiful collections!

  2. Beautiful!!! Two of my favorite things. Ironstone and pottery!


  3. I’ll get a blog post up in a couple days… have to decide what I want to write about. This past week was too busy to even think about… we had company!
