Blue Vintage Enamelware Bowls

Lucky me.

I found these blue enamelware nesting bowls... the basement.

...and fell in love with them again.

 I will be bringing a car full of vintage items to Paula's yard sale
 on Saturday...
...but not these pretty blue bowls.
Not this time.
Not yet. 

Don't worry...there will be lots to pick through!

Anyone interested in old shutters?
Paula has a stack of them for sale.

Hope the weekend brings sunshine and joy...
and a successful sale!

What are your plans?

I am editing this post in order to link up with 
Bizzy@t home
who is having a challenge to do a post with something old and something blue!
Doesn't it sound like something fun?

Love all the finds you keep revealing. Wish I could travelover from the UK to be at your sale. Sounds like there will be lovely things there!

Enamelware! Now you're singing my song!
Wish I could make your sale.

Happy Friday!

Lucky you! I would love to snoop through your basement....
I'm sending my daughter(18) and her bff off on an adventure to London, Paris and Rome! So we are making sure she has all the things she cannot live know, like blowdryer and flatiron....
I wish I was going to your sale...goodluck this weekend~KarenSue

These are gorgeous, make me think of robin's eggs! I'm partial to enamelware - love to tuck in my garden with galvanized pieces. Jennifer

It's not fair. Can't make it to the sale, live too far away ;)
But Ohhhh the treasures you tempt us with! And I love the white pitcher with the pale blue stripe.

Oh Laura...I wish I could come to your garage sale! What a wonderful discovery that set of dishes is...I can't believe you had it and forgot about it LOL! I guess I shouldn't talk...I still have things in boxes from our move nearly 2 years ago and I'm sure I've forgotten what's out there. Have a wonderful weekend!

Your basement must be G I G A N T I C !
You sure have a lot of things.
Wish I could be there Saturday with a million dollars to buy it all and with the leftovers, buy a big basement of my own to put it in.
