Like a Kid in a Candy Store--Published in Romantic Homes Magazine!

Hi Everyone~

Today I am like "a kid in a candy store"
with great news to share~I just found out
that I am featured in the new October issue
of Romantic Homes magazine~I'm so

And, to add to my excitement, I am being featured on
White Wednesday with the wonderful Kathleen today!
How awesome is that? Kathleen, thank you so much!

So for this day, I wanted to share some
special treasures....

To me, tartlett tins are like special trinkets--and have
so many possibilities for repurposing.

Here is a vintage Swedish tin from my Etsy store that

has a Joan of Arc medal from Italy and hand-stamped

seam binding...

A vintage bottle with Miraculous Medal and
hand-stamped seam binding available in my
Etsy shop.

Here is a set with 4 different shapes. These would
be perfect to make refrigerator magnets or Christmas

Vintage photo and tins...

Thank you so much for visiting!!!



I would also like to thank my friend Diana of

Nana Diana Takes a Break

for featuring my news on her blog today!

I am linking this to White Wednesday!!!

I would like to share this with my friends at Show and Tell Friday too!!
