What I Found At Sonoma Country Antiques

 This butter slab obviously found its way home to my house from Sonoma Country Pine.
I mean, how could I leave it there?  It was reasonably priced and had my name written all over it!

I knew it would also be functional, holding butter of course in the refrigerator.
What is it about white ironstone with black lettering? 
It gets me every time!

 But at the counter, I spied these two wicker covered bottles and fell in love.
You know that feeling when you just love something so much that you can't leave it behind?
I also know that these bottles are rare.

The larger bottle has a sterling silver engraved cap which is just beautiful!
 I ended up putting them with a few perfume bottles on my vanity.

I have no doubt that they will be restyled many times, in the bathroom or on a bookshelf.
They're so versatile and add a wonderful texture.

The one thing I left behind and can't stop thinking about though is this faux bois planter!
It doesn't help that my friend, unbeknownst to me bought its twin a month ago.  That's right, there were a pair!  She says I have to go back and get it!
Yes, I do!

Pin It!

Hi Delores, I love the butter slab and the bottles! I also have an obsession with advertising ironstone.

I love these and now I am fully jealous of your flea market.

I love advertising wares too. I have a big cheese slab and would love to get a butter one also.
The bottles are wonderful too. I love them with the other perfume bottles.

Sonoma Country Pine is a wonderful store, if you ever come to the area! As a store owner, I aspire to be like them. Fortunately, they have the clientele that can afford treasures they find. You have found some beauties, Delores! Love the wicker bottles!! Enjoy them!

I think the bottles you totally scored on were from old Victorian picnic baskets
