Fabulous Find Friday ::: Antique Enamel Bowl

IMG_1175

Have you ever fallen in love (whilst antiquing) with something that you don’t necessarily need but just HAVE to have? 

It’s the story of my life. 

But most of the time that something that I don’t necessarily need quickly becomes something that I can’t live without once I get home. 

This antique enamel bowl is one of those things…

When I first laid my eyes upon that smooth, perfectly white, flawless surface I just knew that I HAD to have it.

But once I ran my finger along the perfectly painted forest green edge, well then, I knew that there was no turning back. 

And guess what? 

I’m so very delighted that I acted on my impulse! This dear antique enamel white bowl has served me well.

It makes a positively precious container for all of my herbs that I keep beside my kitchen window.

When entertaining, it makes the most delightful (leak free) beverage tub.

After a long day of antiquing, it makes the perfect foot bath in switch to soak my aching feet.

And then when I may or may not purchase a plethora of pretty flowers?

It adoringly displays those as well.  

If you don’t already own an antique white enamel bowl, (or twelve) *ahem* well then, I strongly suggest that you do. 

You won’t be sorry.

Happy Friday All!

Love,

Wenderly

    I love that bowl! I recently fell in love with a stone handled whisk while antique shopping…makes me feel much more rustic when whipping up scrambled eggs in the morning! :-)

    I am so impressed by people who can find such simple pieces and see their potential for awesomeness! I mean, that bowl even makes club soda (!) look terrific!
