While antiquing in Strasburg, Virgina a week ago, I came across something that
I have not seen before. Mary Alice was quick to tell me what the design was and stated
she had a French enamelware pitcher in this design. . . CUE THE ENVY GENE!!!
It was love at first sight, but it took me a while to decide on actually purchasing it.
After much debate on the cost (a real bargain) and comparing the price to the price of lunch…
it was a no brainer . . . off to the check out counter it went.
This is an enamelware pot and the design is “Chicken Wire” . . . makes sense as the blue design looks
like chicken wire.
The marking . . . I have not been able to trace this marking; however, I believe most chicken wire
enamelware is French.
I replaced this jar of “Lost Socks” with the enamelware pot as I felt it really fits well
with my vintage laundry items.
I am loving it here as I get to admire it every day!
I think the little lady approves too!. . .my sassy lady with those hands on her hips.
In a room that I spend a lot of time in . . . I try to adorn it with things that make me smile as
I am folding clothes!
Have a wonderful weekend!
And I am going to leave you with my favorite quote from Thomas Jefferson . . .
“That which we elect to surround ourselves with becomes the museum of our soul
and the archive of our experience.”
