When searching online for ideas, to see if anyone had done it before, these two images by 'Martha Stewart' became my inspiration:
Since, I have been finding tins in shops and on eBay and I am already near done collecting!
Here are some that I have purchased! I think they will look great and I will have a nice antique tin collection for my kitchen in the end! We are going to do loose, in season 'wild flowers' in them which will add to their 'makeshift' charm...hopefully!
