Loving Ironstone

I have always love old white ironstone and think I have room for one more thing to collect!  The lily of the valley pitcher is probably going to stay in my house, but I Elained up some other things for the shop,

old ivory soaps, $10 each, washtub and wringer $75

pear board $45, round $58, pantry box $75, transfer bowl $25, broom $24, bottle $15

Out with the Old, in with the New Old

It is 45 degrees in Iowa today, and I am taking new photos of all my lovely primitives that should have sold a long time ago, hoping the fresh new look gets some ebay folks to take a peek at least.  My favorite selections of course got done with the blues.

Primitive Time

Just a few more primitives on the way to ebay.  I've been cleaning and trying to organize the craft room now that I actually have one (in the old house, I was either working in the dining room or sitting in a corner of the furnace room, it was sad).  I got a bakers rack moved into the closet and filled it with all my paints, now I have to move my other bakers rack which is filled with projects and move my screened pie safe in--I have this huge house and the tiny craft room is the only place it fits!

Water is Good

The kitchen remodel is moving along--the most miraculous development being having a working sink again.  There are still no cupboards and the floor is plywood and the walls are still being repaired, but we have running water!  I never thought I would be so happy to be able to wash dishes properly again.  The "new" sink is from the 1930s, it looks better now than most new sinks, I really love it.  The new faucets certainly prettied it up.  It had an extra hole, which just had a metal cover, so we thought, "why not 2 spigots?"  The one on the right is just for washing vegetables and filling pots, as it is not hooked into the water softener.

So, let's look at before--sad stainless steel sink.

Next, out to the porch where the big old sink sat for a couple months, all grungy and hopeless looking.

And finally, a clean and fully operational sink!
