A Piece of Pretty...

 

Recently I found this huge old ironstone platter at the thrift store!  The pattern is a very dark blue, almost black...and I was drawn to the design.  This was only $4.00, as it had some big chips on the backside.  Now, you know that doesn't matter to me one little bit...
I think it is a work of art...




I decided to add it to my hutch...


I already had this lovely old oil and vinegar set 
with deep blue colors...









Think I'll have to add some more deep blue to 
the hutch...looks so pretty with fall colors...

I am joining Linda over at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday
and
Until next time...

  1. That fits in perfectly. I have never seen that pattern before either, you know I do have an extensive plate stockpile for smashing.

  12. Pretty platter, Linda and I don't mind the chips either. I found two of the marmalade jars this weekend.

  13. Your platter is beautiful, Linda! It complements your marmalade jars and wonderful vinegar and oil set. My friend bought a complete spice set like your vinegar and oil for only $10!!! Can you imagine?

  17. I love your hutch. Each and every item in it is something I love. The "new to you" platter is a treasure. The white tureen also caught my eye.
