I love vintage kitchen items, which is kind of ironic since I'm not known for my culinary skills. But, even if you don't cook a lot, that doesn't mean that you don't want a pretty kitchen, right? One way to pretty up a kitchen in a hurry is with vintage enamel cookware. Some of my favorite brands are Le Creuset, Dansk, and Descoware, but I've seen a lot of unmarked pieces that are super cool. Whether you are looking for enamel over cast iron, steel, or aluminum, you can find lots of cool pieces of all types on Etsy and elsewhere.  Those pieces that have "broken" enamel and are no longer safe to use can be used as display pieces or as planters. Fill a big dutch oven with herbs and put it on your kitchen windowsill.  Or fill it full of apples and make it your kitchen table centerpiece.

Here are just a few of my favorites from Etsy:

This pot from Ruggy Design has a great shape and design:

This large pot from Swoon Shop has a great funky design and bold colors:

 This great collection by Our House Vintage includes both Le Creuset and Descoware:

This super cute skillet is available from Haus Proud:

Stylin Recyclin has this gorgeous blue pot with lid:

This bright yellow fondue pot from Caffeine Queenie is so cheerful:

This great green sauce pan is available from Retro Treasure Hunters:

And, finally, this Dansk dutch oven is available at my shop. I just love how the lid doubles as a trivet!

Happy hunting!
