Rabbit and santa and question




About the Titel of this post. Santa is for the christmas ornament exchange I received today from Terry. I love the ornament she made me and all the goodies she added. Sorry for the not so good pic, but finding normal light is hard when you go to work when it is still dark and come back when it is dark again and I always want to show the exchanges as soon as they hit my doorstep.

Also heard that Cathy has received my Rabbit's big day exchange on SBEBB. I have stitch ed some parts of spot of spring of Drawn Thread and finished it into a tin. I love how it came out.

Now for the question. I need some tins, but can't find them here. So if anyone is willing to send me some (empty) altoids tins. I will pay postage or make you something beautifull, just what you want.
Thanks.

Vandaag de ornament exchange ontvangen van Terry. Ze heeft erg leuke dingen toegevoegd. Ben weer helemaal happy. Verder is ook mijn rabbit's big day exchange aangekomen.

I think they are very hard to find but I will keep it in mind.

I can send you four tins. I asked a friend of mine to save any tins she came across. She came across five. I want one for myself, but I'll send you the other four. You can make me a Christmas ornament, if you like.

Beautiful exchanges! Love that sheep!

if you are near an English or American shop, try there. I know Woodleaf and Fern in Den Haag used to have these tins.

Are you looking for the round ones with the removable lid, or the rectangles with the lid fastened on?

Lovely exchanges! Send me an e-mail mindibruner@comcast.net with your address. I'm sure I have a bunch of tins.

I have the same problem as we can't get Altoids in the UK either. As long as you're not needing the tins for their specific size, then try IKEA, they do a range of tins called 'Flaten' which are maybe about 5 or 6 Euro, and include 7 empty tins of varying sizes (rectangular). Or, if you have Lidl food shops, they do tins of sweets for about 1 Euro, and once the tins are empty of sweets (my husband takes care of that!) they also work well for stitching (these ones are golden, and circular). Best of luck finding some tins!
