It is too nice to be kept hidden away...
...so it now holds my patterned paper collections.
A few years ago a friend gave me a metal bread bin. It used to house my magazines but the collection became too big...
...it now holds my A4 coloured paper collection.
The next storage tin is my favourite.
Given to me by the same friend it matches the bread bin
One of them says TEA...
...this holds my button collection.
Did have to weed a few out first, I had a suprisingly large number of brown and black buttons?!?
To me this tin reminds me of childhood memories and is one of my most favourite piece of storage.
This metal lunch tin holds my pens..
This old cigar box is just as it was given to me.
It belonged to husbands grandfather, he was a fly fisher and the box is full of bright coloured chenille threads.
Have yet to find a use for them but they are far too nice, and full of meaning, to discard:
Don't tell Lola but this gorgeously cute box actually holds wool:
Charlie was given this tub from a relative and it held pieces for a game (long since gone) but could not bring myself to get rid of the pot. It holds more of Tims grandfathers threads.
Brought this tin full of buttons, now holds embroidery thread.
An old magazine holder stores the larger rolls of paper.
This originally started life as a cutlery holder but is perfect for sitting on me desk and holding my most used tools...
Feel free to share and show off your storage tins etc...
