Fare thee well

I am leaving blog-land for two weeks.
Here is another simple idea.
Use a soup can.
Put outdoors to rust, takes a week for me.
Paint with gesso and let rust bleed through.
Stamp some numbers or letters on with black paint.
Tie string around top and add a handmade charm.
Stuff with burlap and lace then use for pencils, brushes or dried flowers.
See Ya! Lilla

Have a lovely break Lilla

I have altered tins for pencils and pens and brushes, in vintage style but I have to say I just adore you rusty tin so much - it's brilliant and so rustic. I'd like to give that a try
