An Unexpected Pair

I think it's obvious I have a penchant for white dishes, both old & new...




And I will accessorize with them almost anywhere.



So it probably wouldn't surprise anyone that I picked up this ironstone platter...



(If you see this imprint, the dish is definitely a keeper.)


The sweet, barely-there pattern and scalloped edge are so charming.


At $18, it was priced at more than I usually spend on a single new dish, but antique ironstone is usually more expensive than pieces at Home Goods.  Shocking, I know.

When I brought it home, I thought the pattern looked familiar, but I couldn't place it... until I saw Grant lathering his shaving brush in a sweet, little white dish...



I picked out this bowl out at the Knitting Mill when I was 17



Same imprint on both pieces.

I guess I'm consistent.

Happy hunting!
