Vintage Storage Containers, sunday sketches

vintage canisters

I'm doing the next Sketchbook project which will tour in 2012 and chose the theme "Encyclopaedia of".   I'll be filling the pages with the memorable and odd collections that I and my family have.

My Mother has this set of pink, boxy storage containers. All of them but the flour container are used for their purpose. The flour one actually holds more tea. The maker's name is no where to be seen.  And when I asked Mom where she bought them, she said "ya no me acuerdo." She does remember that she bought them just after she married my Dad, so these storage containers are around 50 years old.

Wising everyone a good week.

That's the theme I chose, too. I thought it had lots of potential. I like your idea of family collections. Love the vintage containers!

Good luck on the tour! I'll make sure to add your list to the 2012 tour on the Sketchbook Projects Page! :) Love the set of jars.

Christine said...

oh yes, vintage all right! I wonder if most people use the containers according to their labels? I don't really.

Thank you for your visits and lovely comments.
Melisa, that's neat that we're doing the same theme.
And Sophia thanks for adding me to the list.

LOVE those boxes... you have expressed their feeling so well in your ink sketch, Juana... Look forward to seeing more of you & your families collections--very fun. And VERY exciting with the Sketchbook tour! :o) Happy Week ((HUGS))

Juana, those containers brought back memories. I am doing the 2012 Sketchbook also, I chose The Gray Side of Life, thought it would be good to do graphite sketches (which I love)
