Every year in April my church has a ladies conference and we who want to can hostess a luncheon table and set it and decorate it to our liking. I have done this a few years and last year I set a table with my old vintage ironstone platters also I used some of my vintage ecru dresser scarfs and an old table cloth all in an ivory or ecru color.Then I had made button flowers like on my sidebar of the blog. I used the old pitcher for ice water. I can't believe I didn't take my camera, where was my head? well anyway these are a few of the dishes I used.
The reason I brought this all up was because one of the ladies who was at the luncheon approached me at church last week and said she would love to buy all the dishes I had used at last years ladies luncheon, just tell her what I wanted for them! I said after I got the shocked look off my face, I don't think I can sell them because I have collected these for years and you just don't find them very often around here. I said they are usually $15-$20 each for the platters at different antique malls. She said OK I will pay you that .
I told her thanks but I think I will just keep them Do you think I am wrong since I have had them over 20 years should I pass them on? for someone else to enjoy., not really since this is something I have held onto this long might as well keep them, just answered my own question
Some things I have had for years I just enjoy over & over and then some things I have bought and decided to sell at a yard sale. A friend tells me I can't believe some things you have let go and didn't blink an eye.
I will set another table with my old ironstone this April for the luncheon and I will remember to take my camera
I like my staffordshire brown & white calico cups & saucers , I thought they looked good with the ironstone.
I have several little ironstone butter pats also just forget to get them out for this post
I think I will be keeping my ironstone
I added follow me by email on my side bar, not sure if it's working , somone let me know thanks xoxo
