Looking forward to the weekend

Hello everyone, hope this week was good. It seems this past week alot of people have been sick with those spring colds. I have been  trying to avoid it, but at times it seems I am feeling the symptoms. You know the headache and the stuffy nose, then the running nose and then that dreaded sore throat. Well cold or no cold, I need to get my spring cleaning done, and one of those jobs is cleaning out some of my tin collection. I have been collecting tins now for 30 years and yes they do stack up. What collections of yours needs spring cleaned?

Oh I know what you mean. I've been taking lots of Airborne. We've had extra kids all week and it seems like one or the other has been coughing & sneezing. Of course, we're coming into allergy season too so maybe that's it.

Love your blog by the way! Blessings... Polly

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I see you just opened an Etsy too. It was a big step for me. I hope they pick up business. I will be going back to visit more of your blog. Enjoy your week!

Thanks for visiting Porch Days. From reading your profile it seems we like the same things. Don't get rid of any of those tins. Things you collect and love are a source of pleasure. That is what I keep telling my family when they shake their heads at how much stuff I have. We downsized when we moved to VA and I can't wait to "Upsize!" Moving date should be in May!

Hi Mary - nice to meet you! Thanks for stopping by. I love your vintage coffee tins. I'm a vintage gal myself. I'll have to come back for an extended visit and see what you're up to! I'll follow your blog, too. Check out some of my blog buddies - there's alot of vintage/antique/junk girls in Texas and beyond that would love your site!

Mary, thanks for visiting. I stop by and love your blog, especially the green settee and wicker chair. I love the big bird nest and all the cloches and you are right, garden stuff is the thing right now. Lucky you with all the plants. Texas is so hard on florals unless they are native and then our spring last about two weeks, it will be getting super hot soon and quickly. Your faux
ceiling tin, great job, it looks great. I will follow, good luck with Etsy .Blessings, Marta.

I seem to collect too much according to my husband. I love your tins and at least they are functional!
Hold off that cold. Getting outside always seems to help me.
