This is my first post with Vintage Thingies Thursday (hosted by Coloradolady) and I wanted to make it something special. I'm kinda crazy about vintage things and I have recently discovered that S also has the same form of dementia. She told me a few days ago that she wanted to go with me to see the antique store to see all the cool old stuff. Ahh, a child after my own heart. Anyway, today I wanted to share my favorite set of canisters with you. These lovelies are one of the few things I was able to beg my mom for before she died (everything else is when "when I die you can have it", simply because she likes old things as much as I do). They were my great Aunt Marie's (whom I am named after) and I've always thought they were the coolest. There is the Bakery for holding flour, the Coffee House where I keep my coffee filters, Tea World where I store my miscellaneous herbal teas and another one that is the Sweet Shop the same size as the Bakery. I don't keep flour or sugar in the ones designed for those since they are not air tight, but i do love them all the same. These are made of metal and have to at least be from the 60s since my great aunt had them in her kitchen. The canning jar next to them is a really large, tall one so they are bigger than they look. The jar was my grandmother-in-laws that I found out in my mother-in-laws shed and asked if I could have it.
