Grab Your Bread ~ {Bin}



It's a common dilemma.....where do you hide your bread? Well now I hide mine in this vintage bread bin picked up for $5.00 at the local charity store. Can you see the wear and tear around the place? Perfect don't you think?

  3. How unique! Is that just the way it was made, do you think? Or is that wallpaper? How cute!

  11. A special little find.

    I place my "Rudolph Steiner"-nine-grain-loaf, up high and bright on a center stage, cake stand with a glass dome.

    Nobody puts "Baby" in a corner!.. ;P

  14. I'm sure my mum had one exactly the same, and I think we had a tray and biscuit tin to match!! Maybe you can find the rest of the set :-) Happy bargain shopping!

  19. It is perfect! I used to have a 'bread drawer' in my lower cabinets, but then the grandkids dishes and cups took over that drawer. Then I had a stainless steel modern bread bin that did the job but really didn't suit me.
    Now I house my bread in an old decorative iron planter.
    Your bin is perfect!
    All the best,
    Eileen
