Antique Market English Ironstone Pitcher and Basin

This past weekend was a mighty busy one for me as I attended my 35th class reunion on Saturday night, and then spent the entire day Sunday with my college roommate antiquing out in Lancaster County Pennsylvania. I only picked up one item there and it was this beautiful ironstone pitcher and basin.

It was on an "AS IS" table for only $10 most likely because it has a few cracks in both the bowl and the pitcher. But I loved the pretty detail of the handle and the embossed design around the middle of 
the pitcher.

However before I even got out to Lancaster I was at my sister Kim's house where she gifted me 4 pretty blue and white dishes she had picked up at an auction for only a dollar. They were all crafted in England!

I am very excited about my new pitcher/basin combo, it is so perfect for our home. And what a glorious autumn day I spent milling around the different tables of the antique market, as they were filled with wonderful old pieces of just about everything. Thank you too to my sister Kim for the beautiful dishes...I simply love them!
