A Dollar'sWorth of Fun



On the way back from the grocery store yesterday I stopped at a yard sale.
I found this old ironstone gravy boat for one dollar and brought it home to play with.









Easily entertained!

Hope you have a great Saturday!
:) Laura

Beautiful! I am loving ironstone these days too. Found two platters this week at garage sales for a couple of bucks apiece. I think my collection is getting a little out of control but I can't pass up one of those crazed pieces!
Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend.

Hi Laura,

The Brocantess is still in France with no internet connection, this means no blogs lately. Her niece is over there with her right now. Hope she gets back soon as we need to have our sale.
