Wild Flowers

February 23rd, 2009 by     


Growing up, I remember staring at vintage coffee tins, old flour boxes, brown sugar boxes, and mason jars in our kitchen. My dad apparently found them at my grandfathers house and he cleaned them up and added them as decorations to our kitchen. I love all that vintage stuff. My kitchen also has the same ideas going on, with tea tins, pyrex and old tupperware.

So while researching a “texas wedding”, “rustic wedding”, “country wedding”, I ran into some flower arrangements that are exactly what I was looking for. Making my own arrangements couldn’t be any more simple.

I really love these tins, but the ones I have found are not in this good of shape. Sad, but Im pretty sure I would be able to order some on ebay. As for mason jars, any antique stores will have them. If you are in South Texas, Round Top Antique Show is the first weekend in April and they will have tons of these things. We are for sure going!

Anyone have any other ideas where to find vintage tins and jars?

    I found a container on Etsy for $8 that looks just like one in the Martha photo.

    We worked in a lot of vintage tins. We put the word out to all family/friends, scoured flea markets, etc. If the tin didn’t look good due to poor condition or clashing colors, we covered it in paper that matched our wedding colors.

    I found tins at antique shops, garage sales etc. I also would check Etsy.com. As for the mason jars, I got lucky and my MOH found them at an estate sale.

    Such pretty wild flowers, you were lucky to be there at the right time, we saw very few flowers as there had been a drought the year we were there.
