A New Club and Vintage Tins!

Hi Everyone~

My friend, Mary just started a BRAND-NEW club--It should be tons of fun! It's called The Blogging Sisters and if you'd like to join, just click HERE.

I just designed her blog banner and button, so naturally, I am super-excited!

I have a special project for Victorian Christmas Week--These are vintage Swedish tartlett tins....

If you would like to make some, I have a few sets of the blank tins in my Etsy store...

And I am also selling this set all completed...They are magnets!

As these got swooped up so fast locally, I thought I would make a set to pop into my Etsy store, but you can also make your own...I created them with Mod Podge and glitter. The images are from DEZINAWORLD!

If you would like to purchase the set of completed tins, just click HERE.

I hope that you're having fun creating your Christmas projects!

If you are in need of a custom blog banner or button, or an Etsy store banner or avatar, you can email me at:

What charming ideas! I'll have to try this sometime.
I could see them nestled in the green boughs of a nice, plush wreath for the front door!

Oh your tins are so adorable! I actually have a similar set of these in my kitchen drawer. I never thought of actually using them for decor instead of baking. Clever idea!

Those tartlett tins are very cool. I'll visit your Etsy shop to buy some so I can try my hand at making one. I think these would look lovely on the tree this year.
