Tea and greens

Well it's almost almost here, the weekend is here! Is everyone excited? I certainly am! No specific plans, maybe a trip to Ikea. I have been thinking of going for ages but never made it. I would also like to pick up (somewhere?!) some vintage(y) tea tins to make something like this here. How gorgeous it is? I have wished many times I had a window just above the sink!

  4. Oh my goodness, so cute! I'm a sucker for fun little containers. And in the bathroom, these would be so perfect for odds and ends like Q-tips, lip glosses or hair ties. Love them!

  6. What a fun idea! Shall have to save this to my inspiration folder ;)
    If you're looking for these Twinings tea-cans, you should be able to find them in a lot of teashops and definitely in bigger supermarkets, don't you think?

  11. So cute, I love it. My favorite tea cans are Harney and Son's. They make an amazing Paris tea and their cans are so stinkin cute...just a thought. Enjoy the tea and then use the cans for this!!

  12. Mariage Freres still sells (loose) tea in beautiful tins--I have an awesome black one for Q-tips in my bathroom--and the tea is delicious. Use it up, and plant in the tins.

    Fun idea!

  15. What a great idea! Seeing this I regret throwing out my tea tins! :(

  16. What a brilliant idea! As an avid tea drinker and plant lover, this is so easy to do! I aspire to have that many indoor plants. At the moment I only have rosemary and thyme, my basil got bugs :(.

  21. Those are so cute! We have a ton of tiny little tins like those at my place and they'd be so much cuter than the overgrown monstrosity currently taking over the sill!

  25. Along with everyone else, I love the tea tins too! It looks very antiquish (new word for antique I just made up!) and would go along with these chocolate tins I have!

  29. I pinned this idea to my Pinterest after seeing it on your blog here the other day because I just LOVE it so much. Wouldn't you know that I was at an estate sale today and found a BOXFUL of old Twinnings tins like these. The whole box for five bucks. Score. So, tomorrow, I'm planting them and putting them in my sill. THANKS for this wonderful idea! Love it!
