Sabi Saturday is open for a whole week where we share:

  • the vintage/antique items handed down or we “rescue” from garage sales and thrift stores so they don’t end up in a trash bin
  • items we’ve upcycled instead of throwing them away
  • items we’ve repaired in a transformative way to make them more beautiful or cooler than before
  • process or tutorials on how we upcycled or repaired something to make something new, more beautiful, or cooler
  • the main idea is showing how we treasure or reuse or creatively transform things that have some history to them, may be a bit worn but nevertheless are still useful/beautiful and often have character.

This is a vintage enamel ware pitcher, washbowl, and soap dish.

A friend of ours found it in an abandoned house many years ago, and gave it to me.

It is marked on the bottom with 215. D, but I don’t know what that means, even though I tried to find out.

I still use these quite often. It is pretty distressed, chipped, and rusted out a bit (the pitcher has a hole in it). I’ve used the pitcher to scoop up birdseed, and the wash basin I’ve used as a planter, and also a fairy garden at one time.

I love using old things like this, and am always on the look out for small antique/vintage pieces at yard sales.

    • Thanks so much! I like this set a lot, too. I think my friend did repairs or something on old houses, and would find interesting things left behind sometimes. I’m glad he gave it to me. 🙂

      • You are lucky! Things like that always seem to me to carry stories. What’s the trademark on the bottom? sometimes you can date the year it popped out of the factory from that. although I don’t know if enamelware does that like dishes do.
