Antique French Enamelware canisters were staring me in the face on the screen
on the computer screen that is.
In a Etsy Shop I frequent. Love at first sight.
When I saw them in person, I had to call them mine!
They were going to make a piece that I already had, a collection.
What is that saying? It takes three to make a collection.
A beautiful set of three antique French enamelware canisters made their way home to the dining room.
A few months ago, I purchased a pretty colander in the same pattern as the canisters.
So when I saw that the canisters were the exact same pattern as the colander,
I had to make them mine, to give the colander some company . . . a collection.
Do you remember this colander when I posted it a couple of months ago in a sunroom post
titled Sunroom Summer Citrus and Blues?
The colander gained a family . . . and a wonderful portion of this collection
is the gorgeous porcelain knob.
However, I must say, that I love everything about these canisters.
So happy that the “coffee” canister is part of this set.
This set sits upon a grain sack placemat that I purchased from French Laundry
several months ago.
They may not be in perfect, pristine condition, but the flaws just add so much character
and you know that they were well used and loved.
When I begin my Fall decorating, these canisters will be relocated along with the colander
to a new place where they can be a family.
And they all would live happily ever after.
Have a most wonderful weekend!
