This is a little vintage pin tin that I own.
It was orginally James' grandmothers. Our first home together was kindly given to us by James' grandfather & so we inherited a lot of his furniture & possessions & this little tin was one of those little treasures we found hidden away.
I love it so much as the colour combination of duck egg blue & red have always been a favourite of mine, they always seem to remind me of old Grimms Fairy Tales for some reason & with this little tin the pretty pattern does too.
We had an old Grimms Fairy Tales book in our bookcase when I was little & I used to love getting it out & looking at the illustrations as they were so detailed & nothing like what you used to see in your own 'little person' books.
This pretty vintage tin sits alongside a wooden box that I painted duck egg blue & distressed & they both sit happily together on our dresser in the dining room.
I find it such a happy little treasure ...
