Something Old/Something New


As you may remember from the Easter At Our Table post, I've been gathering up vintage enamelware dishes. The simplicity of the design, the clean black and white colors (my preference, though they also come in a variety of other colors), and the durability of an unbreakable dish is what continues to draw me to enamelware.

Vintage sets can be a little hard to find, especially in good enough shape to eat off of. Etsy is a great source, as are local flea markets and antique stores, though the pieces can be a little pricey- I have yet to find tumblers affordable enough for my budget.

Thankfully, when West Elm introduced their Market collection, a range of enamelware, in black and white, were included. They carry dinnerware, as well as serving pieces and the prices are quite affordable for new dishes. All the pieces can be ordered online with free shipping, or are available in store. I think some tumblers and the serving bowls will be on my birthday wish list this year.

Do you like enamelware? Do you go for the colorful pieces or the simple black and white I prefer? As always, I'd love to see photos of your collections! Tag me in your IG or Twitter photo and I'll share it here as well!
