Pansy Tin

A vintage tin covered in pansies!
A recent thrift store find down south.
I'm thinking that I have a tall tin with a matching pansy pattern
 up at the lake house.
It could be the start of another collection!

I love pansies...don't you?

I love pansies too, but none to be found here yet. You can bet that as soon as they're out in the garden centres that I will be planting some!

They are so delicate, yet one of the last flowers to bloom before the autumn frost. It looks so pretty in that old bottle!

I think pansies are amazing. I love the color combos and their velvet texture. You have made me anxious for my yard to be filled with a riot of pansies.

Your pansy tin is just perfect. It will look lovely at the cottage.

Oh how pretty:) Yes I love them too. I bought a small box of them a couple of days ago and will plant them this week. It has been cold and even though they can withstand it, I feel better keeping them in the warmth;)

love Pansies! Had them in my hand to buy at Homedepot...put them down...and bought outdoor furniture instead, forgot all about the Pansies. Never mind, have to bring the furniture back, and will buy what I origionally came for....Pansies
Wish they had such a pretty tin too, even a reproduction, sigh...
Was fun talking to you earlier. Changed the computer set up. Thanks.
Hugs and tons of love,

Laura, I love pansies too! What a sweet pansy tin. I think you do need to collect them now. I also love the lavender bottle. Pansies are in the local stands now. I always plant them as soon as I can-early this year, too.
Have a great weekend!

Where have I been?! I missed a lot here. First, I love the new header.
I don't think you are aloud to take vintage tins across the state line of Florida. So you better bring it back before you get caught or someone turns you in!! If you come to Fancy Flea you can bring it with you and I will take it off your hands.
Just saying...
