A few more details about a few vintage items

I got a few questions about some items that showed up in yesterday's post regarding my purchases at the Brimfield Antiques Show.

Carrie of Buzzings of a Queen Bee wanted to know more about the Memory Lane plates I bought. She wrote: "I am in love with that Memory Lane pattern (from a distance). Can you show us a close up? I have been hunting for a pretty cranberry and white pattern for Christmas for years and can never find it, but maybe I don't know what to look for?"

They're actually a little more on the red/pink side in person but I do think they would be pretty at Christmastime.

It's transfer ware stamped Royal Ironstone. It was made in the 1950s and 1960s.

The pattern is pretty easy to find, although I think the prices tend to vary. I hope that helps, Carrie.

Cher from The Texas Woman was wondering about the printing tray on my mantel. "Please show us a close-up of the collectibles in the case on the mantel. Looks interesting."

I'm glad you like it, Cher. It's holds a little shell collection, as you can see in this closeup. I bought this one, but I've made them as well.

I really like this one because all the shells are different, with no repeats. It feels like someone was collecting specimens. Thanks for your interest, Cher.

Thank you for the printer tray closeup. I have one but it's done the old fashioned way with this or that, no theme, really. After seeing yours, I decided to redo mine to bring it up-to-date, even if the things inside it are old. You really got me thinking...old buttons, maybe. Gee, another reason to collect something. Yipee!

I love plates too of every kind just not the plastic ones. They are so lovely to look at and insanely glorious to collect, each find is really a treasure.

Mary, Thanks so much for the info and photo! I am planning on doing a little hunting around online tonight to see what is out there in blogland in the Memory Lane pattern. I am so happy to finally see something that I like! :)

oh I couldn't be more excited to see the shell printer tray. . .I have a similar one in my bathroom and posted a blog about it a few weeks ago. Great minds think alike don't they darling?
