My Pitcher and Bowls

This packing and moving has me getting to projects that have been set aside.  I don’t want to pack things that require work once we get to the house so I’ve been try to tackle as many projects as I can while we’re here.

Well last fall Kelli and I were at an auction.  They had a pitcher and bowl that I really wanted.  I knew it had a chip but I didn’t care.  I thought it was so pretty…only problem, it was very dirty with rust stains on it.  I didn’t know if it would come clean.  Should I, shouldn’t I buy it??

The pitcher was okay but the bowl was bad.  The rust was bad.  I ended up getting it and taking the risk.  From there Kelli and I got busy chasing deadlines and it sat on my dining room table.


As I was packing I thought the time has come to know if those rust stains would come out.  I didn’t know what to try on it.  I didn’t want to ruin it.  I started with a rag and water but that didn’t work.  I ended up using a scrub pad and a little bit of Soft Scrub.

I came of much easier than I anticipated.  Isn’t it pretty??  If you look close you can see the chip at the top on the back side.


The extra non-matching bowl came clean too.  I’m not sure what I’m doing with it.  Hopefully I’ll find a home for it at the new house.

I don’t know for sure but I think I’ll display this on the top of the antique cupboard if it’s not too tall….

Normally I had to decorate but I have to say, I’m starting to get excited about it.  I’m so glad that the set cleaned up and looks so nice.

  1. How pretty. Would look gorgeous wit some greens and poinsettias for Christmas. Just greens. I found a plastic container that fits inside mine so I don’t really put water in it. Looks great with daffodils in spring. You ‘ll love it. Great job. Rest, it’s almost Christmas.

  2. it would be pretty on a table close to the door to maybe put keys in as you come in and out….unless it’s bigger than it looks in the picture. Pretty set.
