Little Works of Art...

I love the beautiful graphics on old spice tins!  
This pretty threesome was a recent 
garage sale find!  The Colman's Mustard is a British tin...

Love this red and green color combination...

and it's fun to see an older version of a French's tin...

Pretty aren't they? 
 Such a great pop of color in a kitchen...
little works of art!

I know some of you have been waiting for the Fall Bachman's Ideas House posts!  Well...Monday, I visited the house and I'll start the tour on my next post!

Until next time...


  1. Linda
    I love those old graphics too. I wish I hadn't thrown my old ones out now!
    I'm looking forward to the Bachman House tour-as always! Thanks for sharing it with us all.

  2. You are right, they are like mini-works of art. Love how the colors have held up through the years. I have yet to go garage saling or estate saling in my new area, but I hope to start doing that again. Can't wait for the tour! Ann

  3. Yes they are, dear Linda,- ---wonderful garphics and such happy colours..they knew how to make folks grap a tin ,back then !!! :-)
    Hugs, Dorthe

  4. Those are a must for a little country kitchen decor
    I can just see them in a blue crock bowl or sitting on a wooden spice rack. I say that because that is how I use to use mine in the kitchen
    you found some good ones

  5. These are neat little tins. I've seen the older version of Frenches but not the other two.
    I haven't gotten around to posting my Bachman Idea House photos. I think I will just put a link to yours on my blog. You always get better photos!

  6. I love spice tins - they are little works of art for sure. So bright and happy for a kitchen shelf. Looking forward to your Bachman House photos. xoxo

  7. I love yours, I have a McCormick one with a jack-o-lantern on it and a Frenchie one with a pumpkin pie on the front. I'll have to take a pic and show them one day!

  8. I love the french's and the mustard ones
    So amazing how advertising has changed.
    OOoh I love the tours, can't wait to see what they have come up with this year.

  9. They really are works of art and the colors are perfect for fall. Looking forward to your tour.

  10. Great old tins. I collected tins for a few years but I finally gave them away. I still love them though! Can't wait to see the pictures of Bachman's!

  11. Oh Linda I love old spice tins too! I always look forward to you Minnesota girls posting the Bachman house!


  12. Your tins are great, l love that sort of thing. I have a small collection on a shelf in my kitchen. Lovely decorations. Like you say, an older version of a known tin is really fun. Pam xx

  13. Your so right, tiny works of art. What a fun collection

  14. I wish spices still came in those wonderful tins! I remember the French's tins well, but the others I haven't seen before. I love the colors!

  15. Looking forward to seeing the Bachman house.

  16. These remind me of visiting my grandma's house. Such colorful cans and lovely graphics.

  17. You are right, they are little works of art, I love them too. My daughter has collected a few of them and I've helped her. Very fun!

  18. Haha, I used to have a French's can just like that! It's a shame that the tins have been discontinued. They were little works of advertising art.

  19. What gorgeous vintage tins Linda.

    I went to the Colman's Mustard Museum in Norwich when my brother was at University there!

    Great finds and yes, little mini works of art :)
