Vintage Finds: New Use for a Tiny Pail





I was thrilled to find this tiny robin's egg blue enamelware pail.  Its latest purpose is to hold my coffee filters:  it's the perfect size!  It cozies right up next to my (UGLY!) coffee pot.
It holds the whole stack!  


My best guess is that this pail might have been a berry pail, with a lid.  It's only about 4" high and 5.5" across.



Have a SUNNY day today...I am getting ready for Easter today and will be finishing the cleaning and starting to bake.
Thanks so much for stopping by again!

So cute! I seldom see blue enamelware. I credit you for causing me to notice the enamelware around me. I recently acquired a medium-sized pale green shallow pan with darker green rim(wash pan?) and a deeper, smaller pale yellow one with green rim, both perfect for my kitchen. I shelled the first of the English peas from our garden into the smaller one night before last, and it was a perfect size. Thank you! I, too, love vintage, especially kitchen items.
