And now, back to our regular programming.....


Welcome to Vintage Thingie Thursday!!!
The vintage items pictured here today are my personal favorites. They have been displayed in every spot I have ever called 'home', which during my lifetime so far, has numbered 18.

If you click on the picture, it will enlarge somewhat, for a better view. Since I began my married life in 1973, I had an attraction to gray spatter-ware enamel kitchen things and began to collect just a few items. Here's a coffee pot, a large mouthed canning funnel, colander, water bath canner, and a ladle. At one time I also had a spoon to go with it all, but it got lost somewhere along life's transitions. Not pictured here are pie tins and a couple of different sized mixing bowls, and bowls for food storage. The color goes with nearly everything, being the soft gray that it is, so it is never a problem fitting it into whatever scheme I can dream up!

Thanks for visiting! Don't forget to check out my Easter Giveaway, and when you're done there, please click on the lovely lady picture below to be transported to Coloradolady's blog to see who else is showing off their vintage items today!

What neat items these are. I love all of the old spatter-ware enamel the soft grey is one of the prettiest because it does go with any other assecories.

I love old enamel ware. I was told my mom used to work in an enamelware plant in Dunbar years ago. I haven't seen much of the gray. . . very pretty!

I do like the gray splatter ware. It has a certain warmth about it. It looks great against the rusty red tone of you wall!

My mother always had enamel wares in the kitchen, so I grew up with a variety of items from pots to colanders. etc.
