Vintage canisters

It's been awhile since I've shared something vintage. I'm a sucker for color and I'm always drawn to the reds, yellows, pinks, blues and greens of what usually falls in between the decades of the 30s-50s. I have this greenish set of plastic canisters which includes flour, sugar, coffee and tea (the tea is missing a lid and not pictured). Then I have this similarly colored single tea canister. It's my favorite. I would love to have a red set someday. Why? No reason other than I love to look at them. These days they're pretty much of out of the way, but still visible. Sometime I'll share my metal canisters. And then the cute metal shelving. And then that vegetable bin. Oh, and the cake tins. Ahh! So many beauties! If you have a favorite blog highlighting pretty vintage pieces, let me know. I'd love to take a look.

I have the same set in red. They are very brittle now tho and I use them to store my cookie cutters in. I live in a small apartment and everything has to carry it's weight. The blue/green is so lovely!

I love the cannisters, my mom use to have a red set and we bought her a new cannister set to replace it when we were kids, looking back the red ones were still cooler.

Hi I read your blog about once a week and enjoy it.

I have a set (similar) in red and I LOVE THEM. They give me supreme joy just knowing all sorts of homemade goodness will come out of their contents.

I love your turkey cut outs too.
