  9. Andrea, that Ironstone reminds me of diners! That means good greasy breakfasts and BLT's and strong coffee. I'm sure you'll enjoy them. What are the hands made of? they are intrigue-ing me. I know, I'll look them up in the shop. Have a great day!

  11. Do the glove molds stand straight up? It also looked like there might be a place on the bottom to hang it from the wall? Are they heavy? Thanks.

  25. Andrea,
    We lost power for a few days due to the winter storms & I got behind on your posts. Love the thrifted plates, great deal. And I can't believe you lucked into a cool vintage bike for $2. You must have a thrifting guardian angel! Lisa

  26. LOVE those dishes, what a great find! I was just admiring a similar set in the new Sundance Catalog and let me tell you they were WAY more than $1 a piece! White dishes are a fave of mine. Everytime I open my cupboard they make me smile. There simplicity, how they all match, simple perfection!

    Best wishes,
    Tammy
