Ironstone and Canning Jars

This afternoon I couldn't help pausing to enjoy the play of sunlight on my aqua canning jars. 

I quickly grouped together some ironstone plates and one of my aqua Crown mason jars.

Through the process of sorting for a recent garage sale I have been able to narrow down the collections that I really enjoy having. On my list are ironstone pieces and old canning jars. Among other things : ) Luckily a bonus of  purging is that now we have more storage room for the items I love.

These colours make me happy.

I hope you enjoy your weekend. Josh (13) and I plan to hit some garage sales tomorrow morning and if we are lucky we just might find a new piece for my collections.
