Silver and White Treasures

Is everyone having a crazy week or is it just me? I can't believe it's September already. I am feeling quite behind on so many things so I'm trying to play catch up. I would like to thank my new followers for joining along. I really appreciate the time you all take to leave your comments. It means a lot to me.

I did take some time to hit an estate sale yesterday and came home with these two little gems.


I love these tall silver candy dishes. Of course you can put whatever you like in them. They look pretty with a floating flower in them. I really liked all the engraving on this one. I thought it was so pretty.


The bowl part was already pretty shiny. I just had to clean a few big black spots underneath. I didn't clean it a whole lot. I like it a bit tarnished looking.


This little tureen was so cute that I had to get it. I thought it would be good for gravies or cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving. There was a big one too but it was priced a little high. I wish I had the time to go back today to get it at a discount.


I may try the recipe to brighten up ironstone on the ladle as it has some stains on the backside. Otherwise it was in good shape.


I hope you all have a great weekend. I'm hoping for some cooler weather soon. I can't seem to get in the mood to drag out my Fall stuff just yet. I don't want to let go of summer.

  1. You find the best stuff! I'm pretty sure I have the tray that goes with that candy dish. You should send it over and I could check and make sure. ;)

  2. I simply love ironstone and white, period! That is a really pretty little tureen, Anita. It's so much fun to shop for pretties when we thrift or go to estate sales, isn't it? I have to admit that I am certainly addicted! *grin* You're a girl after my own heart. I like my silver a little tarnished, too...

  6. Hello Anita....!

    Oh YES Lovey I know EXACTLY what you mean....Crazy crazy....C-R-A-Z-Y....hahahahaha....But life would be boring without a LITTLE crazy right....??

    LOVE BOTH of your finds....I tend to leave silver stuff in the tarnished state I find it....Mostly 'cause I LOATHE the extra effort involved in maintaining the shine....hahahahahaha....!!

    The little tureen is just DELICIOUS....We have a powder product down here called Napisan....Funnily enough, it's used to clean cotton nappies....I soak ALL my china, pottery etc in this & it tends to remove or lighten stains & marks....!

    Cheers for now,
    Tamarah :o)

  7. Please, you must share your recipe to brighten up ironstone! I bought a tray this week that has a stain. I bought it to display up on top of my cabinets so it won't show the stain... I love your tureen. I think they look so elegant. The silver is wonderful too. A little tarnish just gives it character... It was hot at the beach when we left today too. Not much better here at home, 93.
    Have a great Labor Day Week-end, Annette
