Blue Enamelware



Pretty blue enamelware.



The colander belonged to my grandmother.



I love the simplicity of these utilitarian pieces.



Although I have different colors....
...this blue color is my favorite.



Irma hosts Enamelware Monday and I thought that I would participate this week.

I hope you had a lovely weekend and that all you Mothers enjoyed your special day!

Let us look forward to a peaceful and calm week ... a week that brings good news...
Take care,
Laura :)

The collander is wonderful. You are a lucky girl to have such a useful, everyday piece from your grandmother.

The blue emamel wear is one of my favorites as well, and in these parts it's called Madam Blue! I have collected some of it on holiday in Sweden and Denmark, and one of my best buys was a doll set!

Have a nice week!

Regards,
Cathrine :-)

Oh, I could have picked up a little French double-boiler that would have joined your collection nicely this weekend! I didn't because it was being sold by a dealer, not an individual, and they know the value of their enamel ware...

That's a beautiful collection, Laura.

Did you see the antique granite buckets and pitchers that Pottery Barn is selling? They look just like yours! I can't believe all the old stuff that they are selling now.
