White Ironstone Tea

Hi everyone!

A few weeks ago, my mom and I did a little thrift store shopping. I was mainly looking for things to create a costume but, of course, I found a few other goodies.

It has been a really long time since I have found a new to me teapot or any nice ironstone pieces. So, when I found these treasures I was so excited!


Although this would be considered a coffee pot instead of a teapot, I was thrilled to find it!


And to find matching cups is almost impossible at thrift stores!



I even found a couple of Johnson Bros bread plates at the same time. I have a partial collection of these dishes. I would love the whole set.


Can you tell it snowed last night? I brought this little pumpkin in to add to this tea and it still had the snow on it.


I also found this amber glass creamer and sugar at the same time I got the other things above.


It was a very successful thrift hunt!


And I am thrilled with my latest treasures!


When was the last time you went out on a thrifting adventure and found something that just made your heart soar?

  1. What a great shape to that pot and SCORE to find matching cups!
    I recently found some beautiful amber glass as well.
    Sadly it was not packed well and when I got home found it had broken. It is such a beautiful color.

  2. Your white ironstone is so beautiful!! What have I found? A silver teapot set I really like. Mostly I buy only for myself, but I bought the teapot set to sell for the silver, but alas it is silverplated. It's old so worth a bit more than I paid. Unfortunately, I have fallen in love with it.

  3. The tea pot is so nice and I love those cups! I agree that pattern is great and I hope you keep finding pieces to go with it. I love the amber cream and sugar! I need to go thrifting soon! I am need a new fix!

  4. What an elegant looking coffee pot!! I love the white ironstone because it goes with everything.

  5. The amber glassware and the colonial style ironstone coffee set is just perfect for this time of year!

  6. Wow! Diann, you did very well with your finds! What fun to bring them home and put them to use. Your images are very pretty! I really like the amber glass c/s set too. The pumpkin with snow on it is so cute although I'm not a huge fan of the white stuff. We get way too much of it for my liking. Thank you for sharing these at Tea Time and have a wonderful day.


  7. I am so happy you got such wonderful treasures! The teapot will go with so many different teacups! The amber set is so lovely!

  8. Some great new thrifty finds, it does feel good when real treasures are found.

  9. I love that coffee pot and the cups are perfect. I went out over the weekend I found a few things myself. Will be sharing them on Fridays post.

  13. Oh my goodness, what a fabulous find. I love it and such beautiful and graceful lines. You reall scored. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  14. The coffee pot has really beautiful lines. I don't use mine for coffee, but they are lovely as vase! I just checked the snowhite regency dishes: I hope you'll find some more, the creamer and the gravy boat are lovely, now I'm going to look for some too!
