fresh and renewed – canadian honey tin

September 4, 2013

Old vintage tins are very popular, I started collecting them a few months back and have already shared a one Fresh and Renewed post using them as a vase. You can find that posts here.

For today’s post I used a vintage Canadian Honey tin that once held No. 1 grade white honey from Munro Apiaries in Alvinston ON. This tin is one of two I have from the Canadian Honey. There are some great details on these tins; cute drawings of clovers, green stripes, cool fonts and the name of the apiary stamped on them. If you see one while out antiquing I suggest grabbing for display in your home and to arrange flowers in!
