The Grower's Daughter

This will be short since I now have to be up in less than three hours! I really just wanted to get something posted at least for this week.
Anyway, this week's featured item is the old tin. Vintage tins are amazing! They come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, and, with a little imagination, they can be used for anything. Here are three ways that I use mine - they all happen to be a set. At this ridiculous hour, I'm not going to list all the wonderful uses for tins... I'm sure you could come up with a dozen in the next few seconds if you had to.
As an unusual vase for a pretty flower arrangement.
To hold sewing notions.

To hold vintage ephemera or bits of paper such as stamps, business cards or place cards.


  1. I, too, collect tins and have for years. Isn't it fun to come across them when you aren't even looking?

  2. enjoying your blog so much. i love how you've displayed your vintage tins.

  3. You always have beautiful flowers in your home. I'm jealous.


Thanks for leaving your comments! I always love reading them. - Maria
