Musings from Kim K.

Those English paint boxes are fabulous. Such beautiful graphics. What a fun collection. I haven't come across any of those at recent estate sales. I'm always scouring the artist/crafting supplies and that isn't anything I've ever found. You really do find super things.

We used the Prang water colors in school and I had a Little Artist at home. Of course it's been gone a long time now.


They are all so neat! The one with the little girl trying to feed the penguin is my favorite. These are so much more fun than the boring plastic containers paints are in now.


Wow.....Love the ones from England. Actually they're all kind of neat! The Penguin and Wonderland one is darling. I didn't know they ate bananas too. I'm not 100% sure but I think I had the Playtime ones we had to use in school. The family looks really familiar to me. I can't imagine my kids using those in school now! Thanks for the walk down memory lane :-)
Very colorful morning with my coffee.
Think I'll put my lavender sweater on now!


The Little Artist tin is just like the one I found at the Goodwill -- I should have known you'd have one like it.

Thanks for answering my challenge. I really enjoyed looking at all the wonderful tins in your collection, and especially love those adorable English paint boxes.


I can't believe all the pretty colors that those tins have inside. About a million times better than those cheapie Crayola ones you find nowadays. What a fun collection. I will be on the lookout for them for you! Do you display them?



The English ones have it for inspiration but there is something about that Radiant one that pulls me right in. Maybe I had something similar as a child.


I love watercolors...that's it..I am going to go out and buy myself a set....wish I could find a vintage set like one of yours...what a lovely thing to collect. xo


I remember having a paint tin but I sure don't remember the design! You have some neat ones, thanks for the memory!


I love them all, but the first one is extra great because it has my name on it! I love anything with my name!


I just love old paint tins... I would love to add some to my vintage office supplies collection. They are hard to find in good condition, but I do love the graphics! Another great collection Laurie!
