Canisters in the Sewing Room

Not only do my new cabinets hold lots of fabric, they provide me with clear surfaces for new sets of vintage canisters. Fortunately I live not too far from the ground zero of vintage storage containers, and was able to pick these beauties up for very little.


Not everything has to match. It's a set because I say it is!


Actually these are just perfect for storing all the sewing notions that come on cards--bias binding, rickrack, seam tape. Because if you put enough of them in, they stay vertical and every color is visible at once. So practical.

I am such a sucker for vintage canisters! Those you have there are fabulous! And I too use them in my sewing room to hold notions.

I never see nice tins at our thrift stores out here. That looks charming!

Beautiful and functional, my kind of organizing!
I have an old Boston Oriole bird tin that I keep my garden seeds in. I'd really like to have the set, but I only have one!

One of the things I love about vintage storage containers (as well as tablecloths, aprons, and other kitchen "stuff") is the bright colors.

Women of generations past made their environment so cheerful!

I saw that exact red set at King's Row Antiques in downtown Puyallup yesterday. Small world... :)
