Kitchen collections

    Newer Older

    It’s hard to choose just one favorite, but I would have to say it’s my collection of vintage kitchenware. The colors and designs are so cheerful - just looking at it makes me happy. I began collecting Cathrineholm enamelware over 10 years ago when it was more affordable than it is now. The Corelle “Spring Blossom”/“Crazy Daisy” pattern is still easy to find, cheap, and perfect for everyday use. Both of these patterns spark memories from my childhood and I think that is why I was initially drawn to them. The collection is dynamic and I regularly add new pieces as I find them in thrift stores, antique malls and flea markets. Other items in the collection that are not pictured include teak-handle silverware, Spring Blossom dinnerware and Pyrex bowls, metal recipe boxes, and a set of green Lincoln BeautyWare kitchen canisters from my Grandmother’s house. The irony of this collection is that I do not cook.

      Jealous... of your collection and the fact that you can put stuff out on open shelves (can't do that in earthquake country where I live).

      Love... all the greens! My fave color (despite my flickr name). :-)

      It's all gorgeous but I'm curious, which is the Noritake? I've recently found my first piece and I'm really interested in Noritake right now.

      The plate on the bottom left is Noritake.
