Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

My favourite Op-shop (Savers) rarely has any linen these days, but I still like to see what else is around, and today I found three fantastic tins. A lady came up behind me just as I picked this tin up and she said "Oh, another tin collector?" and I said "Yes and no, I buy tins for a specific purpose, to store things in", and she said "Oh...." and hung around in case I changed my mind. But I didn't - would you have? I haven't even got the price sticker off properly yet - just in such a hurry to show my blog readers! The other tins are also unusual; one is made to look like a big thick leatherbound book, and the third one has reproductions of Belgian stamps all over it.

Yes I like to buy things in tins, such as biscuits or tea it the tins are nice, also like to buy tins in charity shops. I, also find you can never have too many tins there are always things to store in them.
