I love tins. In the kitchen, they’re a clue that something yummy – if not entirely good for you – is near. But in other rooms, there’s no knowing what you might find inside. In our house, it’s usually something crafty like lace or buttons or interesting scraps of fabric.
So – as they’re so useful, you see – there’s clearly no reason to restrain myself when I spot a particularly pretty one. Really. A lovely, if worse for wear, blue bird! Given a bit of care and attention, I think it will be perfect for storing lace. As will this one, though it shouldn’t need any TLC… And this last tin made me smile. Found on a grey and gloomy Saturday morning a few weeks ago, it added a little bit of nostalgic sunshine. I’m sure this horse is skateboarding… The tin radar can probably take a little break now. I think it’s earned it!
