Little things that make me happy...
This one really got my little heart going when I spotted it...!
I have been on the look out for tins forever, eying up other people's and developing 'tinsilitis', bad case of tin envy (while I'm on the bad play on words subject, can I just slip 'tintastic' in the mix? Ta very much). My luck finally turned yesterday. It was well hidden in the toys section in the charity shop, filled to the rim with marbles. So not only it's the prettiest vintage biscuit tin, but its treasure will also make my nephews happy.
I couldn't quite contain myself when I showed it to Ade, and even his "yes... another box..." comment couldn't dampen my spirits.
I finally have a good'un to keep company to my other lovely tin which my dad gave me, the chicorée 'l'Alsacienne' tin. Love it too.
They've both taken pride of place on my fabric cabinet.
See that fabby apron by the lovely Rachelle at Ted and Agnes?! *swoon*
PS: of course the search doesn't stop there ;)
