Vintage Feature – The Purity of Vintage White

This week’s post is simple  – one photograph of three vintage white pieces.

Vintage Tip – Make Your Own Tiered Vintage Plate Stand

I love tiered stands – whether they all match or they are all different – a tower of vintage plates filled with yummy treats is so pretty.
