Curbside Finds

Wandering home today after a gal pal lunch at the local cafe, I spied with my little eye two plastic bags on the curbside.


I gave it a glance then stopped in my tracks, when I discovered there was some old Twining tins. No need to think twice, I picked them up and continued home.


When I got home I opened the bags and my heart skipped a beat as I discovered there was all these and no double ups.


I also unearthed some fun badges.


These cats were also in the bags, I think they shall have fun in garden.

So not a bad find me thinks, so now do I put holes in the bottom to make them into pot plants. Does anyone have any other ideas.

Oh my goodness! Lucky you!! I have been on the lookout for some of those tins for ever. Love the extras too! I would go with the planters as I think they look awesome but you could certainly use them for storage too, ah the possibilities!! ;)

Those tins are great. I love the colours. Have you got space above your kitchen cupboards? They might look nice displayed there. It pays to go walking!!

Oh the tins look great and I love the cats too. Maybe you could keep the tins and put your craft stuff in them, or use them for storage in the kitchen!

Fabulous curbside finds! I think herb planters would be so nice, or just displayed as is. They're great!
