~ For the L ♥ V E of Tins ~



I collect Vintage Tins. Especially ones with roses on them. I have grouped them together on top of my old kitchen hutch (which I use to house all my treasures). See the beautiful red tall rectangular one? This was a recent gift from the l♥vely Irene from Re-Vintaged. Thanks Irene. Your a doll.

I find grouping things together like this is a great way to display things without them looking over cluttered. Keep it simple. Hope your having a great day. I am off to lunch with my girlfriend Jody. My first outing since my op. I am telling you now, I am starving!

  14. I can't resist sweetacres tins. They are smallish rectangular tins, will have to show you sometime I know you would love them too. I love the one of yours that looks like bark cloth perhaps an old tea tin. Have a fun day.

  15. What a great collection of old tins! Of all the things I collect, I can say that tins are NOT one of them. I'll probably start seeing them a lot more now that they have been brought to my attention.

    Hope your lunch out was fun!

    Hugs,
    Tamerie

  22. If you like tins with flowers then you would absolutley love the Dutch ones, especially with tulips and peonys. My faves are with (old) Dutch landscapes. Have a nice recovery !!

  23. They look great. It's striking that a display of two tins is clutter but a display of ten is a pretty and eye-catching showpiece.

  29. I want to collect these too! I started collecting old tins with english cottages on them. And my that kitchen hutch is to die for. How I wish I had that space for her! xx

  30. How Funny! I just started collecting vintage tins now that I have a house with room. I only have 4 so far but it's so fun to collect. I'm planning on using them all in June to serve as vases ont he tables at my brother and his fiance's country wedding. It's going to be great to use them that way!

  31. Vintage tins are my weakness - I now have quite a few - I should photograph them for my blog. For some reason a lot of mine have a royal theme, but I also have flowers and even a very old one with Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck - I can't resist them when I go to a boot sale.
