Kitchen collections

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.
