What a lovely collection this is, and loved all your pretty vignettes.
I love anything that is white but particularly dishes..........
Thanks for sharing this with us,


Mary Jo,
I adore your collection of Enamelware , dear one!
I have pieces that are similar to the one you sued as a planter!
My beloved, Mother~in`law left my husband and I her with with red rimmed enamelware.
"Mr. Ed" and I now display this in our Laundry Room!
I've purchased several vintage pieces with the black trim for "Mr. Ed" to use with a potting bench.
However, I have my doubts that the bench will ever get made! Ha!
Thank you for sharing your collection!

Mary Jo, I love enamelware as well. I have a collection of old, but like you; love new also. The tray is great and I love the piece with the bee motif and that super cute Americana plate! I have a large enamel coffee pot sitting in my entry filled with daisies. Yup, summer lovin! :) Thanks for sharing with SYC.

I can never pass up enamelware. It sells well in my booth if I can manage to let it go. You have a very wonderful collection. The vintage basin with succulents.

Beautiful collection! I love enamelware, too. Old, new, love it all. I still regret a fine, unusual, antique piece I sold over 10 years ago. The money was nice, but it's gone. Now, the piece is forever gone from me, too.


You have some nice pieces! Thank you for sharing at Home Sweet Home!

MaryJo Materazo
