Spring Antique Collectibles

As I type this blog post for you today friends, it's late February in Vermont, 14 degrees, and the sun is shining bright.  AND with that, I am determined to add some spring antique collectables to my builtin bookshelves in our main living area.  Therefore, yesterday I headed out to the closest Antique mall, Stonehouse Antique Center in Chester, Vermont to hunt for some antique Transferware and Ironstone collectibles.

I have been dreaming of lighter touches like soft blues, white Ironstone, platters, glassware, patterns, and more.  I found 10 antique collectibles yesterday that I want to share with you here today, all for under $100.  I am so excited to redecorate our builtins with these beautiful new pieces and add the spring touches I'm yearning for.  That will be the next blog post friends, so I hope you keep following along!



First up are these 4 beautiful blue and white Transferware teacups that I purchased for $9.

I luv how soft and sweet they look and they have a bit of a different shape to them too.



Second, I found this Ironstone soup crock that I will display on the builtins and most likely also use in our kitchen as well.  This piece was $40 plus a 25% discount.  Which was the most expensive antique collectible of the day.



An antique blue bottle for $3 adds to that light blue color theme that I was going for too.

I also found a couple of white porcelain roosters for $10 apiece.  Perfect for our Vermont shelving.



This large blue and white Transferware bowl was a bargain at $10!!



Friends, the reason I'm sharing the pricing with you on this post today, is that I often get inquiries on how much one should spend while antiquing.  I do believe this is completely up to the person shopping.  However, you don't need to spend over $40 to get a nice piece of antique Transferware or Ironstone.  Most antique shops are filled with these items and they can vary in price depending upon the vendor.  





I also purchased this Ironstone platter for $10.  It does have a couple of chips on it, but that's what I luv about it.








 I am so thrilled you dropped by today friends and hope you will continue to follow along as I decorate with this beautiful Ironstone and these Transferware pieces.  You may sign up for Dabbling & Decorating's newsletter below so you never miss a post!

Why I refer to Love as "Luv"?
All my life I have been inspired by both my parents and a close aunt with their beautiful & unique antique decorating styles, much of which I incorporate into my own home designs today.  Over the years their letters, cards, emails, presents, and more all included the spelling Luv vs. Love.  And I have adored it!  I have always taken this to be a part of a generation gone by that I treasure dearly!  And I hope you will too friends!
