Union Jack tins...


I saw some lovely canisters advertised in a magazine from Tesco so I hot  footed it over there this morning before they all went!



There was a whole range of  "Union Jack"  inspired kitchen things to be had, so I grabbed the 3 canisters for my tea, coffee and sugar,




I like them sooo much I'm tempted to buy another set to put in some flowers  or Alexa's colouring pencils, they're only £5 for 3 canisters.



I think the daffs look nice in there and I have 2 small slim glass vases I put in first to hold the water or you could always use a little plastic bag.



I also got these two tins (£6 for 2)  which you could use for cakes and biscuits or even your "crafty" bits, but I'm using mine as a lunch box for work,




I've put one of my nice doileys in the bottom and there's a CK napkin and spoon all I need now are sandwiches and a yogurt, who do I think I am hehe.

They had a nice oven glove, a pinny and  a glass food preparing board all to match, but  there were quite a few people buzzing round them so I don't think they'll be on the shelf for long!

Now do I get another set or not? hmmm

Love Lucey xx

Oh they are very pretty - not that I actually need anymore tins though.

Like idea of using one for holding flowers too.

BTW - thankyou ;) - I was kind & shared them with the menfolk.

Hello Lucey

What a lovely range! I haven't seen them yet at our local Tesco. I will have a look tomorrow as I really like the rectangular ones.
I wonder if there will be any left....
Warm wishes

Oooh! Thanks for the tip off Lucey, i'll be down there like a shot! Love the large tins, I too dont need any more tins though! Oh well, I feel them compulsory.

Thanks for letting me know the shop name (in York), I remembered it had a Hart or Heart in the title. I just see pretty window displays and dsh right in without even looking above the door at the name!

Have fun next week in York, Hope you have as loveley weather as we did.
