New Obsession

It's no secret that I love color. What do I love more? Colorful, vintage things! I've been a fan of cast iron Le Creuset cookware ever since I discovered the vibrant colors. I went antiquing and found a cute little skillet in the trademark "flame" Le Creuset color. But, it was unmarked on the bottom.

After some research, I discovered that it is "Descoware." From what I have read, Descoware was Julia Child's cookware of choice. It was made in Belgium. Here is some information I found about the history of Descoware. Apparently this skillet is part of a two piece set. This is the lid to a pan (which cleverly doubles as an additional skillet). I scored it for $8.95 and it is in great condition.

So now the search begins for the other piece! :)

Thanks for reading and (hopefully) learning something neat with me. :)


Please leave me a comment! I would LOVE to hear from you! :)
