OK, no Rin, just Tin...

I love tins!!!!(it's actually a box/container
thing I have, but I will just deal with tins
tonight! :) Every Christmas I can't wait
to see what kind of cute vintage-y tins
Michael's or Joanne's will have!(And
then I stalk them until they go on sale for
75% off!).
But may favorites are the old tins and
I'm always on the look out for something

This one isn't in the best shape, but I love
the colors, kinda Mary Englebreit-y circa
the beachy feel of the custom built townhouse
she lived in after the really cool super old house,
but before she moved into her "dream house"!).

This was my great grandmother' old
candy tin...and I painted it. She was very pink,
I think she's approve.

I bought this one because it "reminds me of
that old tin of grandma's I have"...but couldn't
find at that a million other things!
BAD GIRL! And yes, it's red! I can't help liking
Red...she is Pink's sassy sister, so she has a
place in my heart!
This cutie is chintz! (**GASP!**) I included
the Julia c/s so you can see that it's a copy of
real chintz! It's made by Daher and they
also make cute "Julia" tin plates! (a bit
hard to find though!).

And this I bought just because it says "Louis
Sherry"! Just like in my favorite movie, "Meet
Me In St. Louis"! (what a geek I am, huh? :) It
was a "little" before my time, but I love musicals
and Gene Kelly is still my dream boat! (OK, I'm
a big geek! :)

And now........................the WONDERFUL WENDY @

(one of THE all time
greatest blog names!!!) has given me this fabu award!

She could not be a bigger doll and be sure to
stop by and be jealous of the chintz c/s she
just blogged about just to make my heart
flutter! :) THANK YOU, WENDY!
I can't post the blogs I want to share it with
tonight though, I have a strict 1 hour blogging
limit tonight since "Ironman" is waiting.....

    I love tins and things too, I think my favourite is the lilac one.

  8. Your tins are lovely! The red one- is it a bank? Did it used to have a handle on top? My grandma gave me one in blue a very long time ago. Maybe 1977? I sure wish I still had it.

  11. I love your beautiful tins. How do you display them??? I wish I had more places to display things like that!! Thanks for sharing!!

  12. Those are beautiful tins!
    Isnt it funny how we are drawn to certain items, it seems like it strikes a cord in us or something.
    My problem is I am drawn to many things so have too much of everything...hee hee..

  13. i found a Daher tin in my great grandmothers things after she passed, its quite lovely and i think has inspired a love of tins in me : )


love to hear from you! ;}
