Vintage Linens and More Enamelware

Never let it be said that persistence doesn’t pay off. I’ve hit up my antique mall several times over the past few months looking for vintage linens.  Most times I left with nothing. Talk about frustrating…and disappointing. I would walk in with such high hopes only to walk out with those hopes dashed.

Well…not this time. My luck has changed! I found this completely amazing white enamelware pitcher…

and a darling little mug.

I totally hit the jackpot and found some vintage linens for my Etsy shop.

I discovered jars of buttons and this lovely old measuring tape.

My daughter gave me this little cloche for Christmas. When I opened it she asked, “Isn’t that like the bird on your blog?”

Yes…it is. Tail up and everything.

The journal entry I talked about the other day isn’t coming easily. Hopefully I’ll be back with that tomorrow. In the mean time, enjoy your Friday!

Thoughts from my friends...

    Ann, that was the sweetest gift that your daughter gave you! Can you believe that I am still cloche-less? And your enamelware pitchers and cups looks so pretty grouped together like that. Isn’t it funny how we can find things when we aren’t really looking and when we’re looking, we don’t find anything?

    You found some wonderful pieces there, Ann. I love all your old enamelware. I have a few pieces from the farm including the wash tub that my mother used to bath us kids in. I love that cloche, too. You daughter did good -and the bird is PERFECT- xo Diana

    Love that pitcher! I seem to remember one very much like it during my childhood. They look good all lined up there.

    I know what you mean about going shopping with high hopes and not finding much. I’ve been that way for the last six months. You really found some great things. Love the enamel pitcher and the little cloche from your daughter is darling.
    Hugs and have a great weekend,

    Love the cloche Ann, it really does look like the bird on your blog which makes it extra special I’m sure.
    Love all your finds especially the pitcher!

    Woo Hoo! Isn’t life wonderful sometimes? Love all of your new finds. The gift your daughter gave you is beautiful too. I like the way you’re using it too.

    I hope you are off on a good luck streak! The pitcher and mug are beautiful on display and what a thoughtful and pretty gift from your daughter.

    Happy Weekend!

    You definitely hit the jackpot, Ann! The little mug is like the one that hung on the pump at our place on the farm. There was one like it on the old pump of J’s boyhood home, too.
