trays and tins

When it came time to find a place to store the black tole tray
(read more of the story here),
 I got into a stash of OTHER trays
that I've purchased at thrift stores over the years.
 As you can see, several of them are blue and white.
 I think I have enough.  Until I find the next one...


  1. LOVE that last one.
    I know I have enough.
    But more than enough seems to be calling to me...

  2. Hi Rebecca....Oh, I love trays, too. But when I get some of them home, I don't know what to do with them! ha! Take care and have a nice Tuesday night! Susan

  3. I love the blue and white Dutch look. When I was in high school, I got to go on a trip to Washington D.C. and we all got to see Mount Vernon. I bought a little square tile that looks like your last picture.
    Yet another thing we are both drawn to!

  4. I like blue and white too. You have a nice collection of trays.

  5. Rebecca....I am in the process of "cleaning" up my pantry....a place where apprently I keep things other than food...sigh. I've come across sooo many trays in there that I thought I couldn't live without or part with....but, alas, I'm in the mood this week, and they are leaving me. Some of them I got at businesses that were going "under" years ago...(serving trays, etc.) I don't need nor use them. Some of them needed to have been sorted and tossed years ago....I just didn't/couldn't do it. Today is the day!! Ironic that your blog is on "trays".... Perhaps my trays are telling me, "No, No....just one more day (year) please!! " :))
    Lovely trays, Rebecca.
    Hugs and love,

  6. Love the blue and white. I have one pretty blue/white tin tray... mustn't acquire more!


  7. Rebecca, thank you for visiting, yes, every Season I work for the Salvation Army as a Bell Ringer collecting Donations. They are my next door Neighbors & have been Friends and a Blessing to my Family for many, many years and do so much within our Community {and the World} so I enjoy giving back of my Time and Talents during the Holiday Season for a couple of Months. Officially I'm retired from the Corporate World and my two major Careers {Banking and the DA's Office}, so now for the majority of the year I can concentrate on my Family, raising the 2 G-Kids we have living with us and being an Artist. I suppose I'll never completely 'retire'... as long as I'm able to do something I probably will. *Winks*

    I too Love Tole Trays, I have quite an assortment of them and we actually use many of them daily like TV Trays... the G-Kids love picking out favorite designs for their Trays to eat on & it helps with clean-up. *LOL* Yes, I'm a laid back Bohemian Gramma... eat where ever you feel most comfortable... inside, outside, various rooms... never have been a stickler for eating in one spot myself. *Smiles*

    Blessings & a Happy Thanksgiving from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian


Hope to return your visit soon! Thanks for leaving a message...
