Tin Cans..........

Hey ya'll. I haven't posted in a while.....been busy, busy, busy. Thought I'd share a little craft I've been doing lately, and actually been doing quite well in my Ebay store. I have been using plain recycled tin cans and painting or rusting them and using them for pencil holders, utensil holders in the kitchen, or filling with silk flowers for a little prim arrangement. They seem to be going pretty good. When I first started making these, Rob laughed and said, "Mom........surely you don't think people are gonna buy those??!!". He doesn't understand "Prims" anyway. But now...who's laughing!! I remember he said the same thing about my rag balls!! You can check these little cans out in my Ebay Store, my online store and in my Etsy Shoppe. I can also make special orders..special color combinations if needed.

Love All Ya'll,

They're darling, Vic, as well as useful; and I love the idea of repurposing something which would otherwise end up in a landfill!

Well, Vic! I'm all for tin cans!!!! LOVE the old prim look and love the hearts in them!!!! Make some pin cushions out of them, too!!!!! I'm saving some tuna cans for that! Hey, whatever works, right????? Cora
