~the tin (for Joanne) and today's treasures~

Joanne recently asked about the tin containing all those wonderful buttons I found at the flea market. The tin was actually found a couple months ago at the thrift store for a dollar and has been sitting empty waiting to be put to use. After coming home with the buttons, which were in a couple jars, I knew the tin would be the perfect container.
On the bottom of the tin is printed Made in England Container. You can see it is well worn around the knob. Joanne, I hope you read this and let me know if yours is the same...
While Mike and I were on our way home from the feed store, we stopped off at a couple of yard sales. I found this little doll quilt for $2. I've washed it and hung it to dry...not a great picture, so I'll try for a better one later...
And guess what, I mean 'who', came home with me as well, free to a good home...

Have a good weekend friends.

    I made a quilt similar to yours when I was just learning to sew. Seeing it brought back great memories.
    I don't comment often, but I enjoy reading your posts very much. You have a lovely blog, and a beautiful home.
    We are hoping to find something similar when we move. I would love to have chickens!

  12. I LOVE that tin! I used to collect tins and that would have been one I'd have snatched up in a jiffy. And your "who" you brought home is so adorable! Can't wait to hear her (his?) name.

    Oh, so glad that I popped in today! Thank you for taking some closeups of the tin. Mine is very similar but has a flat surface/lid. It has the same embossing and colouring!
    I know it is very old, so cherish it!
    Great find! Lovely quilt and adorable kitty!
    Thanks for sharing!

  18. Lots of goodies here.
    That is one large vegetable garden, do you not get damage - I'm thinking deer or rabbits etc? My sisters plot has been ruined by bunnies this year eating her out of house and home and digging everything up.
    Sweet kitty - what are you going to call her?
