some Valentine ideas to decorate our homes and then share them with you.
Today our kind hostess is Melinda from the Refeathered Roost.
Melinda has created a charming Valentine retreat around her beautiful outdoor fireplace.
Go get cozy with some hot cocoa or tea and pay her a visit.
Then if you have time come back because,
I have a story to tell you...
I could have cried, I could have laughed (I did eventually) or I could just add flowers.
What could possibly be the reason?
Ironstone-yes, the one and only, traditional, gloriously, beautiful Ironstone.
I am late in beginning my collection and I would appreciate any tips or advice on
where to truly begin, is it with gravy boats, water pitchers, bowls...
hint it has a lid that doesn't fit and one handle...
So, here is my very first piece of Ironstone,
I chose this one- pure white Johnson Brothers pot.
I searched and searched as to what this one handled gleaming white container could be.
After receiving some disturbing news...
I frantically began to cut and sew fabric into various Texas Size Valentine Hearts,
adding some XO's, rickrack, and wooden buttons, all with the idea that I would
fill my Ironstone pot up with hearts!
In the end, it was all a very feeble effort to help camouflage what my purchase actually
turned out to be.
Short on time...short on hearts....
By now you know me well enough to know that my go to is-Flowers.
I found some happy yellow primrose, added some baby's breath and my
Valentine Vignette is well on it's way using an Ironstone Chamber Pot....
Yes, a chamber pot-did you guess right?
Be sure to visit gracious Melinda at The Refeathered Roost .
