My Collections – mini collection in a tin.


This vintage chocolate tin has accumulated stuff I have collected and once it was full, I left it full of treasure. When I was a kid I used to collect cool things in a wooden box and I loved to look through it.  This reminds me of that as I don’t take anything out or add anything but I do like to look through the tin every so often.


There is a pile of postcards ranging from 1912 to the 1970’s, some blank rectangles of cardstock, crystal glass necklaces, a selection of spelling flashcards, a beautiful pink decanter or bottle stop, a heap of old cotton reels, a ball of pink nylon and a pack of playing cards.



These are the snapshots of Llangollen which is a town in Wales where I used to go on holiday with my family as a kid. I think these photos would be from the 1920’s or 30’s as they were taken on the No. 2 Brownie camera.  I love old photos and these are some of the first I bought.


Some old postcards from across the decades! The postcard of the highway cracks me up and on the back it reads ‘Rolling along to school. See you soon Love Marguerite’, this was to Lillie and postmarked 1969.


The sepia card on the bottom right is the one from 1912, and was written to Elsie from Mabel B promising a letter when she has time.  Some things don’t change!

Do you have collections?  How do you store them?

Happy Wednesday x
