old beauty...

Happy Friday!  To celebrate the day I am joining Debra over at Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday!  I thought I would share with you this old beauty I received from my thoughtful sister in law Christine...


A wonderful chippy old cracker tin!  Thank you again Christine, you are so sweet! I found the perfect place for it on the ledge above my couch...


It also looks great holding all the beautiful cards I received from family and friends...
As the beautiful flower arrangements I received are beginning to fade away I had fun saving a few blooms and scattering them around my nest...
...inviting Spring to hurry up...

I am keeping my fingers crossed that I feel well enough to do a little treasure hunting this weekend!  What do you have planned?
I am so happy you stopped by and hope you have a wonderful day!!

Awesome gift, Sandi! I love the dark against the white in your room. They really compliment each other. :) Your flowers are truly a welcomed breath of spring! I'll be doing some major spring cleaning this weekend before we leave on vacation. I LUV coming home to a squeaky clean house! :)

What a sweet treasure from your SIL. I LOVE the individual roses on your mantle!

I'm so happy, it's going to be 60 degrees tomorrow and I am going to a gigantic indoor "yard sale" being held by the Girl Scouts tomorrow.

Hope you're able to venture out and thrift. Good luck!

Beautiful post. I love the tin. When I first saw the picture I thought it was a match to the wooden cinnamon box I found at a yardsale today. Aren't old boxes the greatest. You sister in law was so sweet to give it to you. I love how you have cards in yours. I am thinking about putting a vase of flowers in mine. Have a great weekend, ~~Sherry~~

Sandi- Well, first off...I hope you do feel well enough to get out and do a bit of popping around this weekend-I am sure it is kind of a day-by-day recovery at this point.

I love that old tin. Don't you love it when someone knows you well enough to know how much you appreciate OLD things...and didn't rush out to buy you a NEW tin? Gotta love a sil like that!

Lovely blog today with all the flowers strewn here and there- xxoo Diana

Serendipity Chic Design said...

Those pictures are amazing! I am especially loving the individual roses in the tiny vases....

Sandi this is so charming. I love old boxes of any kind, I tend to pass them up though, but then regret it. Very pretty. xoxo tami

Love your blossoms, coaxing Spring along. It would be great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays.

My father used to collect all those kind of tins/boxes. But that one is an amazing one. I like all the detail still on it and it looks right at home with all your wonderful white.
