A Collection...or an Addiction.

It started with a need for new canisters to put on my kitchen counter tops. I saw some really pretty ones on an RMS post...and decided that I would like to see something a little different in my kitchen. (I think it was Picket's post ...but can't be sure I did love gazing at her kitchen)
So...I set out to find some pretty ones to use in my new "scheme"....and it was the start of a whole new ball game...
I found that canisters were not really one of the Big things around this area at the time. As usual, I was looking for the one thing that I could not find...seems like the story of my stupid life doesn't it? ie..the crown issue? lol
Well...I found some...and a month later found some more...and again and again...and they were all screaming my name...I just had to have these! These ones are perfect! Oh! look! These are the ones....and a collection has been created...and addiction born. The following are photos of a few of my sets...well at least the ones I am displaying at the moment....
I love these...they are my latest additions...
I took the doors off this cupboard to show off these ones...they say Claire Wilson's...tea, coffee, garlic, potatoes, onions, oil, vinegar, water, cookies , sugar, I love how cute they are!
These are wooden..and say flour sugar and tea on them...
These ones are reversible! The plaid on on the bottom shelf...is actually the back of the ones with the fruit on them...the photo doesn't show them that well...and there are some trays too...
These are full of gum, and other candies that the kids don't need to be aware of ...lol
These are just soooo pretty up close...wish I had a better shot...they are very heavy...
So? Do you like my wire tea pot? I have a smaller one too...tea pots are another collection I have...maybe another day..my greenhouse is peeking through that window too...lol
Well... That's another day for me...Maybe I will post some of the other changes I am making around here soon....so many projects...so little time....(sigh) My wish list of renovations is long...and I intend to try to get some of them done ASAP!
