I have been sifting through all the old cardboard Easter eggs that I have and decided that I may have one or two more than I really 'need'...
These teeny, tiny cups and saucers were bought at a car boot a few years ago - together with the teapot they cost £4 and they have remained on my mantle piece ever since (they just get a seasonal addition every now and again!). They came from Japan originally and are very, very sweeeeeet. The tin egg I bought the other day from the 'Shop that sometimes opens' (soon to be renamed the 'Shop that opens more frequently than it used to') - 20p (to be honest most things are 20p in there)
Every jug and pot gets a vintage egg in it...I have a few jugs and pots....Dom is still insisting that less is more....
And then there is the sorting and sifting of the vintage tins....I do like this one with the deer and bunny
I also like this 'range' - again (sadly..) there is one for every season and seasonal event so 'stock' can be carefully rotated according to the time of year. This bunny one I have seen selling on ebay for extraordinary sums of money - it is in fact cardboard with a metal lid
I have not taken photos of all eggs and tins - that would just be crazy!
Thank you again for kind comments - I am going to tackle why I cannot directly comment on my own blog today. I have tried now on several computers! Thank you also for not pinning my photos elsewhere - they become sad when separated from home...Must get on as proper job is bearing down on creative diversions!
