Tea Tins Make Lovely Flower Vases
Remember think outside of the box!!
Or in this case outside of the tin!!

Collecting Tea Tins Is My Latest Obsession

Have A Pink Rosy Day!!

These tins are all so beautiful filled with the lovely blossoms! I collect tins, but keep loose tea in them, I'll have to borrow this idea!

Enjoyed this post a lot!

Beautiful! I have a butterfly tin that I use as a vase at times. Also, love the idea of leaving the label on cans for vases. I often take them off and cover with beautiful scrapbook paper or old maps and paint with a glossy glue. Have a good weekend!

Hello Duchess! I have a few tins, but never have I seen any so darling as yours. Do you get them locally or online? My tea club ladies would love these, and I'm always on the look-out for special hostess gifs! You did a beautiful job of displaying them! I'm still trying to interpret your instructions on joining Tea and Friendship. I am so "blog jargon" challenged, but I'll figure it out soon!

The photos of the flowers in tea tins are gorgeous. Tea tins are a great collectible - so many colors and designs.

I may use this idea for a tea table that I will be doing at Christmas.

Great idea, as I too love tea and love flowers!!! Only here in Sunny AZ, not many flowers are blooming right about now!!!
It looks like you live in England, I guess I was half reading your blog the other day, after babysitting my little darling granddaughter for 3 days this week, I was half brain dead!!!!

By any other name
Would smell so sweet
