White Ironstone

Hi Everyone
 Happy Friday
A Vintage creamy white ironstone pitcher
 is the perfect vase for these
 freshly cut pink hydrangeas from our garden

Can you see the detail and luster on this large 
vintage white 
ironstone pitcher
it is one of my favorite vintage treasures 

We cut so many hydrangeas this morning
 that we even put some flowers
in a vintage white ironstone 
casserole dish

 the traditional and classic
combination of hydrangeas in
vintage white ironstone

Did you know that hydrangeas
will last much longer if you do not add
 any other type of flower to the vase
 {like the white roses above}
 if you want your cut hydrangeas to last a long time
 keep them separated from other cut flowers

Hydrangeas are  also thirsty flowers 
they require a lot of water 
 be sure and check the water level in the vase often 
especially in the summer to prevent wilting

These beautiful hydrangeas will last almost
 2 weeks by our front door

Pink Hydrangeas and vintage
 white ironstone
a beautiful and classic combination

  1. What a beautiful post, Pam. I didn't know that about the staying power of hydrangeas being mixed with other flowers but now that you say that I realize it is true. They do much better by themselves. Love all your photos- xo Diana

  2. Absolutely gorgeous hydrangeas in that awesome ironstone pitcher!

    Hope you share with How Sweet The Sound's PINK SATURDAY linky party - everyone there will love your pretty pink flowers!!

  3. I love hydrangeas so much that they became the inspiration for my wedding and my wedding colors. They weren't pink however but the beautiful light blue they come in at times.

  5. Your hydrangeas are just beautiful. All flowers look great in ironstone. I wish I had enough to cut and bring in of the pinks, but I only have the white. Have a wonderful weekend. Alaina

  6. Pam,
    Your hydrangeas are gorgeous. Wow!!!! So pretty thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures.

  7. Pretty hydrangeas! Oh, and I can't remember whether or not I told you, but your home looked so pretty in the magazine! I don't subscribe (I might start now because it was a lovely issue) so I bought it at the grocery store.

    Congrats, my dear!

  8. Pink Hydrangeas are so lovely! Mine were always blue and I wanted a few pink ones to stand out. Yours are wonderful. Happy Pink Saturday!

  9. Very envious of your beautiful breath taking hydrangeas let alone your priceless ironstone. I always have to look at the ironstone pieces you show on your header, love the details on them. I love vintage ironstone especially, so perfect. Happy 4th.

  10. Hi Pam!!!

    I collect pitchers and tea pots that are white ironstone. Some are plain and some have beautiful detailing on it. Thank you for sharing important info on hydrangeas!! When I bought some roses, the florist was telling me info about the roses. One thing she said was to put a couple of ice cubes in the container with the roses, that they love the cold.

    I'm learning bit by bit about flowers and your helping me along!!

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend!!


  11. The perfect combination, and so pretty. Thanks for the tip. I had not heard that.

    Happy Pink Saturday, Pam. I am glad you joined us.

  12. I collect ironstone and just started adding broken pieces tucking them in among my garden flowers. I have two huge white hydrangeas that begin as lime green blooms - now I just brought home a blue one to plant. I love your blog and this was a favorite post! Jennifer JennsThreeGraces

  13. Gorgeous ironstone and hydrangeas! I don't put them in water and they dry perfectly!

    Enjoy your weekend and stay cool!
