My Faux French Enamel Pitcher

 I know all you lovers of  Cottage, Farm House and Shabby Chic  design have drooled over those gorgeous chippy vintage enamel pitchers. Well I don't own any but I'd sure like to... the problem is my budget is tighter  than  a  Botoxed face. Getting a real Vintage one for a price I am willing to pay has not happened. However while getting my craft fix in  Michaels  a couple of days ago I saw a whole shelf of clearance faux enamel pitchers in all kinds of funky colors and they were 50% off. Yippee! for 4.99 I got a  Faux French enamel pitcher. It's not the real deal but its cute and its a new thing to play with, I skipped the multi colored  ones and  went right for the white.


I put a hand tied bouquet in it to see how it looked with flowers  and then played around with the photos.








I got a cute pitcher and I got to play with flowers, life is good. I'm looking forward to the blog parties next week, Will you be participating? I'm working on a couple of pieces, so I'd better stop playing and get to work!

  9. Hi Karen, your pitcher is wonderful, good for you! The faux is great and looks beautiful with your sweet bouquet. I'm like you, the prices on the real thing are so high, it's great to find a look alike. Thanks for joining in for VIF!
