A Good Tin Is Hard to Find




Tins are so plentiful in thrift stores that I rarely look at them. But, this one caught my eye. The plentiful kind usually aren't cool and a bit vintage like this one.
I love the winter scene and the colors.
And, it was 69 cents.
I'm trying to figure out if I want to make something of it - which is why it has green florist wire with thrifted wooden beads bobbing around on the ends.
I'm just not sure, yet.
Sometimes plain is fancy enough.

Just wanted to say I love your finds. It is always nice to find ~sister spirits.
I found you via 'bags4darfur.blogspot. An old neighbor that always had the nicest collections in her windows.
We have downsized, and have a very large grainery full of boxes, so I need to quit thrifting, and reinvent what I have. It is such creative inspiration to scout others, so, thanks! 'boler babe'

I saw an idea for using a tin like this for the base of a lamp - might be a project for your hubby
