maybe a cake tin in a former life?
Thinking of how many 'props' as I like to call them I already own, I was hesitating when Maggie said it was a button tin! Well, as you know I do love a button - especially on a card, or an old linen or mother-of-pearl one. So what is a girl to do when faced with such a dilema?
take a peek inside of course!
oooh looking interesting!!!!
a box within a tin - short whites no less!!!
a selection of caramel, cream and chestnut vintage buttons
a tin full of possibilities.....
I fell in love with the tin, the contents were an added bonus, so yes, it came home with me and what else do you do on a winter's Saturday night, yes, you sort your buttons out! There are a lot of gems and a lot of ordinary buttons but that is part of the fun. My mother, in her words, 'wouldn't have given the tin house room'. I told her this afternoon about my buttons and the lovely old tin, she just shook her head!
I have been working on painting a little wall cupboard.....
