Ericka ??? one crazy month

over at Rosenreslis a new blog I'm in love with
she loves enamelware as much as I do...
featured some amazing pottery that has been handed
down and I was hoping maybe someone
has heard of this German pottery?

it's stamped on the bottom

or this company on who made these German
polka dots it's imprinted Germany on the bottom.
I wonder if there is more to the set?

this has been a crazy month for Phil and I we finished up

2 existing jobs and took on a new kitchen and refinishing

there hardwood floors to a gymnasium finish and we have to

be done by March 1st.

We have been working 7 days a week to get it all done

and I'm so looking forward to next week and taking a breather

this Friday is the carnival at school our biggest fundraiser

another crazy train I can't wait to get off of is the PTO.

So I'm going to sign off of blogland till next Monday and

I'll catch up with all of you then, say a prayer we finish....

Oh and one more thing a big thanks to

Shereen, Elizabeth and Chastity

for helping me clean their house after re sanding

their floors, oh my when we took down the plastic

I had not expected to see so much dust, so thanks again!

Have a super rest of the week!!!


  1. Hi Heidi,

    I can't help you out on the porcelain part. It is lovely stuff that Tanja has on her blog! Good luck with your kitchen and have fun tomorrow with the carnival!

    Lieve groet & happy evening,


  2. Good luck with your projects, hopefully you will be able to get a good break soon.

  3. Hi Heidi - I did a quick search on a few German sites and didn't come up with anything. It is a lovely though and I can imagine that it would be rare to find such a large set in good condition. Have a nice weekend!

  4. Oh such gorgeousness!!!!! I love it all!

    Wow, sounds like you have been leading a very hectic life, well enjoy the slowdown indeed!

    Have a fab weekend!

    much love

  5. I love the German set!

    Best of luck...

  6. Sounds like you've been mega-busy. Hope you get a break soon X

  7. Heidi I love your color combinations!!! You know I am a polka dot freak!! I'm not familiar with those items, but I'll research it this weekend. I am so in love with your green polka dot bowl and the blue polka dot canisters. I remember my grandmother having a small canister set. (different set/but good memories).
    You and Phil take care of yourselves. I have no worries that you will get done, your both such hard worker bees!
    Hang in there!!!!!!!

  8. Oh Heidi,

    these canisters are so beautiful - I´m so impressed! I have seen canisters with a similiar rose decor - the name of the manufacture is "Rosenthal", the name of the decor is "Cäcilie Tausendschön". Perhaps it is the manufacture of your canisters. I think they are ca. 80 years old. In this time many, many manufactures exists in germany. And some of them copied successful decors from other manufactures - but always a little different. I will search to find more about your beauties!

    And the canisters with the blue polka dots - I´m so in love with them. Where do you find them? They are really sweet.

    I send you a big hug,

  9. Those cannisters are so pretty. I've never seen the one with roses. Maybe I have seen the polka dots at one time or another. Sounds like you have an awful lot cut out for yourself. Take care. Diane

  10. Hello,
    thanks for your lovely comments. Those spotty cannisters are beautiful.

    I hope we can see the kitchen at some point ... you are very busy! But it'll all pay off in the end.

  11. goodness sounds like your super busy. I love the polka dot containers. Have fun, and take lots of care, dee x

  12. You are a busy girl....and oh how sweet are those dots on those containers...JOY x100!

    Happy friday my friend. xoxoxoxxo

  13. Miss you already!! We have the swimming carnival & suddenly, i'm running the BBQ. Sure!! Anyway, i'll flip sausages between races & this is my last year with one child too young to compete, so one eye on the novelty races in the kiddie pool too. Have a gorgeous weekend & yes, like me, cutting back on the P&C, delegating a bit more is wonderful. Love Posie

  14. I hope things have slowed down a bit for you and you have has a relaxing weekend.
    I love polka dot set! :0)

  15. Dear Heidi
    No idea about the china, I'm afraid - but it is lovely !
    I wonder how your kitchen is going? It is so tricky when a kitchen is being refitted/decorated as it makes us all realise that this truly is the central room of a home, isn't it? Good luck with it!
    I've sent you an email in response to your lovely comment :-)
    Happy days to you,
    D x

  16. Hi Heidi,

    I think even though your canister set has german words on it, it was made in what was the czech republic.
    I found this set and the name seems to be the same on the bottom. This sets words are in english and is not nearly as pretty as yours, but I'm thinking its the same company.
    Hope this helps... Also hope your not too exhausted from all your work!
    Chris :o)
