...for the Love of Ironstone...

I love ironstone.  I refuse to part with most of it.  Here are some of my favorite pieces around my home. 

Later in the week, I'll post pics of my space at Liberty Belle in the West Bottoms.  The sale starts Friday at 9am.  You won't be disappointed.  I've been working on an antique walnut buffet, a matching antique dining table, and 6 lyre-back chairs, which I will paint and recover the seats in burlap.

That's My King

Spend a few minutes and watch this video.  You won't be disappointed.  It gives me goosebumps every time I hear it!

what's not to love?

Last week's finds were amazing.  Behind these antique chairs is a fabulous buffet, which I will show in a picture next time.  I need opinions - restore to the stained finish or paint.  I found 8 oil paintings, 5 of which I am currently keeping, 6 lyre-back chairs, the table to match the antique buffet, and a bunch of other stuff.

Liberty Belle

Liberty Belle is located in the West Bottoms of Kansas City.  There are a couple other "first weekend" venues besides this one.  This is my new space.  I love the thrill of the hunt and selling!  My first sale was a handmade wooden box with mosaic-inlay of wood.  Very intricate and detailed, the gentleman from Prize bought it.  He spotted it instantly and picked it up!  What a compliment!

Now, after selling lots of stuff, I am on the quest for new junk...peace...
