My Mama's Cookie Tins......

My little Mama loves butter cookies and the Piroutte cookies that come in all of the various tin cans. Well, she is also a child of the depression, and I also harp on her about recycling, and that is difficult for her because she lives in a little town....population 88. Soooo, she saves all of these tins and presents them to me when I visit.......she just knows I can do "something" with them.
Because she has such faith in my ability, I just can't toss them in the recycle bin.....I simply can't.
This is the last "lot" I received from her.......gave them all the same look with the little handpainted roses.
Guess it makes me think of Spring!

Have a Happy Friday......

Thank you for stopping by....

You know I love it when you come!


  1. So pretty and so sweet of your mama! She's right - you do know just what to do with those tins. ~ Angela

  2. I tell you what girl, you can really work a can!
    They look so pretty with the pink roses,(swoon).
    My Mom used to collect everything, bless her heart. She was also a child of the depression and she just couldn't throw away anything.


  3. How sweet your mom saves those for you:)
    What beautiful roses! Now they are such treasures:)
    have a great weekend!

  4. Very pretty and cleaver way to reuse such a useful item. They are wonderful for holding small things like ribbons, lace, buttons, etc.

    Way to go.
    Working on PS rounds.
