This is a very old ironing board that belonged to DH's grandmother.
I have used it in so many ways.
Display at craft shows, to hold plants in my home, as hall table, night table, as sofa table.
Leaned up in corner with old aprons on it, etc. and yes as an ironing board by my machine!!
One of my fav treasures we own simply because dear MIL was going to throw it out and I grabbed it!!!
She was forever shaking her head at me over my 'old junk stuff'!;-)
I used to hug and kiss her cheek and say "well now Miss Nellie you are lucky I adore old stuff as I adore you and Mama!"
They would both just hee haw faces glowing from the love!
Anyway ..now Granny Belle's old board becomes a TEA TABLE!!
Yes I decided to do my Tuesday Tea post on it!!
The Magnet Tin Lamp is also an one that was my MIL's.
Was electrified way back , I use a candle looking bulb in it I found at Lowe's.
I used a vintage hand towel with crochet lace on it as my table cloth.
Then a 1940's cotton place mat. I have this set and another I just love.
White cotton napkin with one of Granny H's 1910 silver forks and one of Aunt Mary's silver spoons. I mix up my silverware along with mixed dishes...just my way!;-)
My tea pot was made in England, sitting in a cream ware plate.
Next is a cream ware teacup and saucer.
I only have two ,each a different pattern, this is the smaller one.
The tag hanging on the lamp was one I received in a Tag Swap a few years back.
A candle floral arrangement in a vintage'60's bulb planter.
Now this fruit bowl is part of the dishes I call my 'Autumn' dishes... so lovely!
I plan to have some of niece D's pumpkin gooey butter cake in this one. shhh;-)
They are a pattern called Sundale 22K Gold by American Limoges, Made In USA.
I have dinner plates , nice dinner soup bowls, large serving platter and bowl, these fruit bowls and some saucers.
I do not have any cups!!!! Boo Hoo!
I have looked and looked, online the pattern that comes up is not this one.
All the same but the rims.
So if you are somewhere and see any just like these please give me a yell!!!
I do hope you enjoyed my country Tuesday's Tea Post on Belle's old Ironing Board!
