You already know how I feel about white ironstone, BJ! I love what you did with your mantel. Fantabulous!

Beautiful...you're a good "copy cat"! Love that bedroom too!

Sue said...

BJ, Love your take on the ironstone displayed mantel. I'm still adding to my white collection and am always on the lookout during my thrift shopping. Your bedroom is going to look gorgeous when you're done. I would love to have a black/white/red bedroom. :-) Seeing your inspiration room is giving me an idea....

If I didn't copy cat, where would all my ideas come from. Now I have something to do with all my creamers.

Shelia said...

Hi BJness! Honey, you know I love a copy cat! I'm one myself. You copied good and have given Miss Mustard Seed a run for her money or her paint brush or her gloves or stain or something! :) Love your mantle and your bedroom is gorgeous!
be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Love the ironstone copy cat mantle BJ. How fun for you to have something new and creative to do with your treasures. Well, I went a-visitin' and am now named among the thousands of followers at Funky Junk Interiors. Wonder if she reads all her comments (:

I tried to tackle Funky Junk yesterday, today I aim for Miss Mustard Seed. They are so inspiring, your work is lovely!

Sue @ Not the Good Scissors! said...

Love the mantel. It reminds me a little of Pottery Barn which is my faborite decor at the moment. I am very partial to white ironstone. And I love your shelf. I have been looking for one just like that. Hopefully I will find one this "junkin" season.
Big hugs, Sue

BJ, this is just wonderful. You have such a great collection of ironstone. I am sure you would have come up with a great mantelscape on your own but a little inspiration is good! Love that pretty bedroom, too!

XO,
Jane

BJ, your "copy cat" projects are fabulous. I'm so impressed with all you do. Love that guest room. I may just show up one weekend. LOL

I love this mantel look, BJ! What a great clock! I have a nice big one on one of my mantels, too. It's a nice change from a picture or mirror. Love your ironstone, too. I've recently decided to look for more white pieces myself when I'm out thrifting.

Miss Mustard Seed said...

BJ, Thanks so much for joining in. All of that ironstone has me drooling!! I want to sneak over and "borrow" your collection in the dead of night. :)

I just found your beautiful blog! I love it. My colors are celery green walls, red, cream and a touch of black. We three 5 year old kids it is impossible to even think that something could stay white in this house. :}
