Vintage tea tins

Birds, tea tins, colours...there is a strong theme emerging. I love to collect tins because you can still buy them for a pound or two, and when I get them home and put them together, they always make me feel happy. Perhaps it's the thought that they have been involved with the ritual of taking tea, so many hands making so many pots of tea over the years...a comforting image. 

And I've been making little ceramic gift tags with Das clay, from an idea in Sania Pell's book The Homemade Home, and using my new typewriter stamps from the V&A. Very relaxing.
