Grey Tins and Molds

My greys have been coming to me
in the form of vintage molds lately. 
I love how they hold trinkets 
ready for my next project 
Vintage metal petite trays
on a vintage grey French Postes linen fabric
A peek at my work table from last weekend.
Some tins are French
 and some are from the good ole USA

Joining in at
A weekly link party full of beautiful greys!


  1. ooh....these tins are pure loveliness mon amie! wherever did you find them all? i especially adore the heart-shaped ones.
    i only have a few...hard to part with them. i love how you've embellished them. happy grey dey....feel better! ;)

  2. Great idea to use these pretty little tins to hold your projects in the works, Rhonda! I have one heart shaped tin that I think I'm going to keep closer to hand for those projects that I'm working on that I add buttons to. I think it will be helpful and keep them from getting lost or knocked off the table.

  3. so beautiful, Rhonda! love how you've used the molds and all the different vintage elements!

  4. Beautiful French trinkets and bezels of beauty displayed so perfectly in silver grey molds and tins lined with lace!
    They all go hand in hand!

  5. Beautiful displays with the tin and how they hold the beautiful laces and images. Wishing you a beauty filled weekend.

  19. These are so Lovely! I would Love an entire Christmas Tree festooned with such Creative Serenity and Organic Beauty! Thanks for coming by for a Blog Visit... yes, that unstained glass framed Window is from a famous Winery on the Coast and must have been an Advertisement Promo Item... I 'Picked' a matching set of them and kept one for myself and have the other for Sale in Showroom #114. The Peacock on it was Perfect for my Aesthetic.

  20. Ooops, sorry Rhonda, I just realized that the unstained glass Window in that Post that you're probably referring to is the Leaded Glass one I have in my back kitchen and was Salvaged from one of our Outbuildings... so it holds Sentimental Value since it went with the property and got damaged when some Vandals broke in and destroyed some Architectural Elements of the Cottage it used to be installed in... we took all the leaded and stained glass windows out to Save them from being Vandalized since our property is quite large but is in the Inner City of an older neighborhood and alas, in steady decline.

  21. Some of your shapes I haven't seen and I always have my eyes peeled hoping to find more! Your photography is just the best as is your talent for creating. Love visiting you!

  22. You have such a great eye for composition. Love it all.

  23. Hi Rhonda, Beautiful tins, I forgot how gorgeous your blog is.
    Been far to long since I've been over. Life just gets in the way sometimes.
    Thanks for entering my giveaway and best of luck hon.
    Hugs Lynn

  26. Rhonda,
    These tin molds and the spiritual feel to them are divine.
    They are truly little pieces of art that remind me of what you may find in a Nordic shop they have such an old world feel to them. I could see them featured in a Jeannie d' Arc Living magazine and used on a Nordic style Christmas tree as little pieces of art ornaments :)
    They are just so soulful.

    Thank you beautiful for taking the time to visit me, it really is such a compliment when you visit and speak out on my art coming from an altered artist that I admire ( you )

    See you soon and all your inspiration.



I hope you found some inspiration today.
