Where the Tin Houses Live

I shared my tin houses with you in a previous post. I collect these tins. I used to collect all tins, but there are so many available that the collection grew too quickly. As I gave them away, I could not part with these sweet little houses. I have added a few new ones as I find them. I don't see them often, but I'd like to find a few more for another set of cupboards in my kitchen.
 I have a set of cabinets on the other side of the kitchen that I would like to fill with house tins, so I have my eyes opened whenever I'm in a thrift shop.

the gas station, red house, candy shop, and light colored brick mansion

a second candy store (such a sweet tooth!), yellow house. tan house, pink house, and village shop

the trolley is parked here, blue house, pink house, Cracker Jack house, and Santa's Workshop

I hope you enjoyed seeing my collection. I will show you when I get the other side filled. It may be a while,since I have trouble finding them.

  4. Those are absolutely precious. I love all my tins. I collect them as well. I didn't know about the houses until you last posted one and then shortly there after found one at a yard sale. They are adorable. Can't wait to see your other cabinets completed.
