I have five pages with ideas from readers for collection challenges. Some I have done and some I have not. I KNOW someone suggested vintage wastepaper baskets, but who is was remains a mystery. I can't find it on my list. So for that mystery person, here is the collection.
When the mystery person made the suggestion I really did not think I had a collection of these. But looking around my house and studio, I do. Those that I find are not smelly and gross as they are smaller and not for use in a kitchen where the worst garbage would be. Some have not been used at all.
Kate uses this vintage metal floral can in her bedroom.
Many of the cans have a great floral graphic and I use them for storage in my studio. This one is a heavy cardboard and holds surplus of pipe cleaners. It has seen better days.
Floral tin in the studio.
A peek in this one finds it holds poker chips in white only.
Last but not least another tin floral can. This one lives in our coat closet and holds umbrellas.
I DID have a collection of vintage trash cans. Thank you mystery person for the suggestion. If you have an idea for a future collection challenge, leave me a comment and finish the sentence "show me your collection of ____." I will remember to put you on the list, so I don't end up with another mystery guest.
MYSTERY SOLVED THANKS TO A COMMENT...Heather from Vintage Grey suggested this challenge...I am not losing my mind, I KNEW someone had suggested it!
