The nicks on the enamelware tell a story of someone using these items for everyday purpose such as laundry, giving a baby a bath, cooking and mixing, or perhaps soaking their feet after a long days work. For me the black nicks, often in the shape of a black eye is a badge of honor.
My great declutter has unearthed several pieces of porcelain enamelware.
|Larger sized enamelware some have seen better days others like new.|
Heck the oval one, top right, still has the original sticker on it.
|My aunts used to cook with enamelware pots and pans.|
My favorite piece is the small bucket, and the round dish pans.
|Which pieces would you keep?|
I enjoy hanging my laundry on the lines in my backyard to soak up the smell of sunshine and the fresh scent of the breeze. Sweet memories of my mother hanging laundry on the line are seen in my minds eyes. How I loved going to bed as a child and smelling my sheets that were hanging on the line that morning, heck I still enjoy going to bed on freshly laundered sheets from my own clothes line.
During the declutter, I found a clothes pin bag filled with wooden clothes pins. I have an easy access clothes pin bag and use plastic pegs when I hang out my laundry.
I have no idea if these pegs are vintage or not. If you know anything about vintage clothes pins, please share your knowledge with me.
I won't be keeping all of these items, but will pick a few things to keep. Getting ready to go into the basement to continue the great declutter. Stay tuned for more of my decluttering of my collections/obsessions.
