And Now For Something Completely Different

Maybe not so extremely different. Still a "RE-MAKE", still using vintage with a modern touch, still love the two together, still like them to "marry" each other (old and new).

These are new additions to my etsy shop. I'm employing vintage kitchen tinware (like candy molds and spice containers) with the new rage, succulents. They look so sassy. Like the little piece of tin is saying "you thought I was "passé", now have a peek my New Look.

These are special succulents. They never need watering or to sit in the sunshine. They are "faux". They bloom anywhere. On your desk at work, or your powder room vanity, on your kitchen counter, on a bookcase. If you're one of the blessed ones who has a "planning desk" for menu planning and shopping lists, right in your kitchen, how fetching one of these would look, smiling up at you.

Now, the hunting safari, to find the tinware.

  1. I never did learn to like succulents. I know all the reasons why I should (environmental etc) but I'm just not able to love them.

    The tins, on the other hand, are gorgeous!
