A new ironstone find for the master bathroom……..


A few weeks ago I came across an antique chamber pot at an antique shop. The price was really good since the lid had a crack however I couldn’t think of a spot for it so I passed on it. A few days later when I was in the bathroom taking a shower little Miss Gracie discovered how fun it is to dig in the trash and rip it into itsy bitsy pieces! That’s when it occurred to me that the ironstone chamber pot would be the perfect solution since it has a lid.Thankfully when I went back they still had it and the size was just perfect for next to the toity!


The lid has a crack and has been glued but I really don’t mind the imperfection. Isn’t the little handle on top adorable?

Looking from the master bathroom into the bedroom…..you can see the bathroom in the reflection of the mirror.

Love it! I have not found one with a handle. Bailey loves to shred paper too while we are out.

It's perfect, Des! We had to resort to getting a bin with a lid for the bathrooms too...Holly loved to dig stuff out of the trash. Q-tips were a favorite of hers. :) I love the flooring in your bathroom too! So pretty! You're so lucky they still had the chamber pot when you went back. It's because you said "Rabbit" on the first of the month, right? ;)

I love the curvy shape of your chamber pot. Having a lid is an added bonus, and I love the longer handle on the pot. Perfect for trash.

The Ironstone looks so sturdy, and it goes nicely in the bathroom. Glad you decided to get it. It worked out for you.

Des, this is a great addition to your bathroom. Love the bistro chair. My goal is to find one chair once settled. Love your bedding!

I am in love with your duvet cover and bedskirt. Can you share with me where you got them or what brand they are? Thanks!
