"Vintage" Canisters

A gift from my aunt & uncle


mushroom canisters

Can they be any more 70's????

So there is a story as to why these are now sitting in my kitchen

Growing up, we lived right next door to my aunt & uncle
These canisters sat in her kitchen for years
they were such a part of the backdrop of my childhood years
where we spent hours with her cooking, painting our nails, chatting and just being loved

Fast forward 30+ years
These precious treasures from my past were passed on to me!
My Aunt came to visit and gave them to me
"Honey, they have been sitting in my basement for years.
I knew you loved them so I wanted you to have them!"

They have a special place in my heart & now they have a special place in my kitchen

I {heart} them so much
I love you Aunt J!

Also, do you not love my curio cabinet?
It is a flea market find!
it is made from salvaged window frames!
