ok, now I messed up another post!
Of course I wanted to wish you all a wonderful Sunday and thanks for stopping by.

Jo said...

Yummy indeed! 'Grilled' Altoid tins - are these literally put under a grill to get that effect or put in a bbq type fire? Happy Sunday to you too, xxx

Happy Sunday, you lucky girl! What beautiful finds! I am curious about the grilled altoid tins as well, you cannot leave us hanging on that.

Marie Lost Bird Studio said...

Jo was right - I did barbcue the tins and will spray them with vinegar to rust them.

LOL! Grilled Altoid tins? Well, that must be a lot safer than holding them to a candle and risking burnt fingertips. Great finds! Are they MOP buttons? I'm having so much trouble finding the pretty carved ones. I've seen jars in the antique barn lately, but all mixed plastics and ugly ones. :-(
The hunt continues......!
Happy Sunday, Marie!

The button cards are great, and all that yummy lace. Crafters are the only people I know that would get excited over grilled altoid tins! Maybe we should make a "Cook" book. Rusted Tins could be one of the sections.
Love to you,
