Blue Monday and Today’s Thrifty Treasures – Enamelware Pitcher


Blue Monday is sponsored by our gracious Sally at Smiling Sally.


Please visit Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for more thrifty treasures.

A stop at the hospital thrift shop on Friday gave me another blue item to share. It is an enamelware pitcher which I got for one dollar. Such enameled metal kitchenwares were popular and affordable household items.

The deep blue background is spattered with white blotches, hence the term spatterware.

The lid is hinged

Thanks for stopping by and do visit again soon. I enjoy when you leave comments. Please visit our hostesses as listed above.

That's so cute. Are you going to use it or perhaps fill it with flowers?

Please stop by and say hi.

That was a blue bargain. I love spatterware. We use it for picnics. Happy Blue Monday.

I love enamelware. I learned, as a teen, to make the best Iced tea in an enamelware pitcher.
