I thought I would share another one of my collections or at least part of it. I have always loved old tins ever since I was a little girl and inherited quite a few from different relatives. In recent years I have looked out for tins from the 1930s onwards although I still have quite a number of much older tins. The one above is one of my favourites and purchased relatively recently.
The carnation tin is very pretty and the seagull tin sits with my collection of seaside themed items.
I really love this tin with the little girl on the shoreline.
I have come across this white heather tin a few times and also have a much larger version of the same tin.
This Vernon Ward picture was another great find by Mr C this week. He found it at our local tip recycling shop for £2.50. It will now join our other two Vernon Ward pictures on the landing or in the bathroom.
And finally this wonderful array of goodies arrived this week from Annie The Felt Fairy. She was my swap partner in Tilly Rose's vintage, shabby chic swap. I was so excited to open it that I forgot my camera until I had unwrapped everything. There are some lovely flowery garden gloves, some gorgeous rose scented Cath Kidston hand cream, a pretty floral candle, two cute little handmade felt hearts, a flowery needle case, a 'Make Do And Mend' book, and a fantastic Beryl Woods Ware bowl. On top of all that was some delicious chocolate and a packet of rainbow drops, neither of which lasted long especially once spotted by Mr C and my lovely girl. Annie is so kind and although we have never met seems to know me so well. I love the bowl especially and have read most of the book which is packed full of fascinating snippets. The gloves will be put to good use although I have to admit Mr C does most of the serious gardening. Thank you Annie you made my day x
