Snow on the Mountain

Bonjour!  I am enamored of antique enamelware.  I am especially fond of body pitchers and canister sets.  

This particular style or pattern is called chicken wire or som, standing for snow on the mountain.  

I love the texture which you can sort of see on the pitcher below.

This photo was taken in the Presidio, about three blocks from where we live.  You can see Alcatraz in the background.  

The canister set is available in my Etsy store.  

Such European charm.  

I don't usually buy yellow flowers.  However, I loved the way the petals have a bit of green on them.  

Enjoy the rest of your week!  

No snow on the mountain here :)



  1. What a beautiful view! I love the idea of putting herbs in the french canisters. So pretty :)

  2. What an amazing sight to see that off in the distance! Great idea to use those canisters for herbs too. Love all of it.

  5. Michelle, is the name of the pattern that you were referring to of the enamelware???? I was trying to figure out how it tied in to 'snow on the mountain.' I thought I missed something. If you plant herbs in those pots, is there any drainage? I love them!

  6. So pretty!! Love the yellow roses:))
