To hold you over until this Evening...

I have not forgotten about the giveaway... I just want to wait until Drew gets home, so he can do the drawing:) Hope you can wait....

So, until then I thought I'd share a few of my tins with you. You can never have too many tins, especially when you're a crafter! This first one is my favorite. The tin itself is a greenhouse... and if you look closely, you will see that there are A lot of cats! I think it would be a perfect scene to do in mini!!

There's cats all over the tin.... although the ones on the back seem to be getting into trouble... I keep my tooth picks in this tin!

And what about this tin.... With all the birdhouses:) This is another one that would be really cute in miniature!


And this one.... Hey, I see a theme going on here... Looks like I buy tins that remind me of miniatures...lol... I just love this little caravan with it's puppet show!


I bought this one not only for it picture, but because it's a tin for Entex- a medicine that I took for about 10 years as a kid...helps with sinuses... but I just couldn't walk by the image!


And you'd never believe how much I find them for! The last 2 only cost me a quarter each! Now that's a bargain, huh!

Hope everyone has had or is having a Great Easter! Eat looks of chocolate for me! And I will be back tonight to do the giveaway!



Until next Time.....

I use the afternoon to reciprocate your good wishes for a Happy Easter :-)
Here in Italy it is raining and cold, luckily there is Internet to make us feel closer to friends ...
We do not eat chocolate, there was more space :-)
Looks forward to the outcome of the give away (if you have not already done so, and you are interested, I have one too ...)
Your boxes are fabulous, especially the first: I love cats!
Mini hugs, Flora
