candy

Here's a small collection of vintage candy dishes and tins from around my house that I thought I'd share since they've got some pretty details. :)

This first one is an old Whitman's tin. Don't you wish things were still packaged this way? It's got a little wear to it but I think it just adds to it's vintage charm!


Here's a pretty little dish made of glass and silver. It is busy holding hershey kisses at the moment.


This is my favorite. The colors are amazing. I kind of wish it was a fabric print. The only thing I know about it is that it was made in England.


And this is another silver and glass guy. I love the little pear handle on top!


There's so much character in vintage things. Can't wait to find more!

Happy almost Friday. :)

  4. You have a GREAT eye! The first one is gorgeous (but mostly I say that because I'm a huge Mucha fan). I hope you find many more! So far you've had incredibly finds.

  5. Oh wow! I have such a thing for tins as well. My favourite is definitely the one that was made in England. It reminds me more of Eastern Europe in the early 1900s than anything.
