Confectionary Tins

For awhile now, I've been gathering tins decorated with roses.
I'll never pay more than $5 for one.
Most are made in England, Western Germany, and Holland, and some are definitely older than others.
I like to use mine to hold buttons and miscellaneous stuff.

They also make pretty flower containers.

I always use a glass vase filled with water as a liner, just incase the tin leaks.

I've had a couple of those same tins and have sold them. Now I wish I had kept a few. Just got back from vacation and am getting caught up on blogs. So glad the button bracelet you bought from me at Farm Chicks inspired you to make more. It's fun to use those extra special buttons for things you will keep. Still waiting to see what you are going to do with that other treasure you got from me.

Hugs,

LOVING these! I've been collecting too.... Do two count as a collection? Still looking...

Have a great weekend... We're having some toasty days, then it's supposed to cool down on Monday.

Warm blessings,
