{tin it}


lately I have been 
"tinning it"
storing everything in sweet tins



my latest beauty is this 
blue charmer


it has found a home on my table top
any guesses on what it might store?

Just for today....
Be gracious & kind

The tin is lovely and I can't guess what it stores. Well, one try, tiny pine cones?

I loooove that tin, beautiful colour!
Isn't 'tinning' the best way to store all
those little treasures?

I have been starting to collect little vintage tins (mostly from Etsy) and my project for the tins is to use them to store home-made marshmallows and give as gifts for Christmas....I adore your blue tin, beautiful =) Xoxoxo ~Ashley

When my mother in law and I go to yard sales and flea markets, she is always on the hunt for pretty tins. She uses them as boxes for packaging gifts, and they are oh so charming!
My guess is that your pretty tin holds some special candies???

I think there are cookies in the tin! At least I would like that.. or chocolates.. handmade in a chocolate shop in Belgium. :-)

Libbie said...

I can imagine you would have lots of goodies to stash in some tins (You ARE a girl:) & hopefully some treats :) She's a beauty!

Vintage Home said...

...cookies!?

Palomasea said...

Dear Koralee, this is beautiful!

I love tins, myself.

I would have to say "cookies, cookies", in the words of the cookie monster..or is that too obvious?? ;)

A lovely week to you!
Hugs,

Rosie said...

OK...dear one, the air is chilly and I do believe tonight is the maiden voyage for the "fuzzy toe warmer"...She is too pretty to use...I LOVE it so much... you are so special...thanks sweet one! ~R~

Anna at the Doll House said...

The tin looks as good as a cake, crowning your gorgeous cake stands.

I'm guessing that it is not filled with cookies. So, I suggest cookie cutters. or perhaps, cotton reels ...... I give-up, what's inside?

Anna
