Another Vintage Find

Remember that AWESOME mid-century enamel bowl I found at Goodwill?  The only reason I noticed its shiny goodness was because I had this sitting on the top shelf of our built-in cupboard, way in the back:

This belonged to Mr. Man's mom way back when.  And it's in EXCELLENT shape.  I fell in love with it when we were packing her up for a move and saved it from spending the next few years in a cardboard box.


  1. Is this an ice bucket? I love how retro it is yet a little bit modern Orla Kiely, no?

  2. This is really pretty! The blue is so bright and cheery and pops beautifully against the white.

  3. it begins to be disturbing when "vintage" describes things i could have received as wedding gifts! i'm in the process of cleaning my basement and who knows?...maybe i'll un-earth something you'd find charming! i'll let you know - AND i'd even pay the shipping:)

  4. Beautiful shape. It is CatherineHolm, in the classic Lotus pattern.
    Great find!


  5. Erin, THANK YOU so much for identifying my ice bucket!!!!!!!


Your comments give me a thrill. Thank you.
