White Ironstone

So many  have posted about white ironstone that I hate to even mention it. However, it is my favorite also.
While I am waiting on my  surprise birthday gift in November from my husband , which is to be a camera,

til then I have to use some pictures I have in my computer from the store.
This is in the old white jelly cupboard. Most  of this is older but to me it is all beautiful. I have so many customers who look exclusively for white ironstone.  I try to keep an assortment but since it is such demand I really need to look when I go to Roundtop tomorrow.

I know I will find some there.
We usually stay at the Ant Street Inn in Brenham but this time I waited too long and they were booked.
My husband likes the room with the grain elevator in the middle of it. Looks like a guillotine to me. He calls it the Ant Hill Inn.
One advantage at this hotel, other than the elegance and comfort,  is you get all the free Blue Bell ice cream you want.  They keep it stocked in the 2nd floor refrigerator. We have stayed there many times.
If you get an opportunity when the Spring show comes around, book a room there.  You won't be disappointed.
Hope to see all of you at the blog party Sunday night at Theresa's booth.

Hi Lois, thanks so much for coming by, I love all the pieces of ironstone, and I never get tired of it! I've been collecting soup tureens and pitchers for the last several years, and I see a couple of great tureens in your photos... and your white cupboard is wonderful!
