This Old Rusty Tin

An old rusty tin and a few tiny succulents probably don’t deserve an entire post dedicated to them. But I’m totally in love with them.

So here you go.

I find this old coffee tin for 20 cents at The Scrap Exchange in Durham, NC. If you are ever in the Durham area you must, must, must make a trip. It’s an entire warehouse filled with items that have been donated by industries, businesses, and individuals. All items that would normally end up in the landfill.¬†You can find the craziest things there. It’s so fun searching through all that cool stuff.

  1. I have been wanting to plant a succulents. I even thought about it this past weekend. Maybe I need to do that this weekend to display in my kitchen. Found you at the GYB link party. Followed and liked pinterest, g+, fb and twitter. you can find me at denisedesigned for all those except twitter which is brigittedenise (and maybe even google+…brain freeze so early). Thanks.
