Vintage enamelware*

This white vintage enamelware bowl is huge. I love it! The spout looks like it may have been used in pouring batter. We eat a lot of fruit so I keep it sitting on the counter filled with delicious fruit. Usually lemons, grapefruit, tangerines and apples from our fruit trees.
The enamel bowl rests inside a vintage silver trivet perfectly... I love how it looks together besides keeping it from tipping! I have a collection of enamel ware. I once found some enamel pieces at an estate sale that a doctor had who was in his 90's and used them in his practice! They are fabulous and I use them for storing and keeping smalls organized.

My design tip: When you find vintage unusual items don't pass them up. After you get them all cleaned up you will be surprised how many ways you will use them.

photos: the vintage enamel "fruit trees" sign will be perfect for our lemon grove..
Come spring it will be in the grove! The vintage oil can I found on one of my mid west trips. A vintage oval ironstone dish from my collection, vintage silver spoon with face of president "George Washington".
Hope your enjoying your weekend!
