Shabby chic: My un-boho half. The video (above) on Studio 5 is about creating your own shabby nest for home spring decor. Aqua hues & shabby colors all come together to turn items like chicken wire and ribbon into the cutest of table accessories.
Matchboxes and tins can get a shabby, imperfect update. These lovely designs (above & below) are by: tinkeredtreasures on Etsy.

Creative Ideas for DIY Magnets. When I saw this pic (up), I thought it was brilliant, it brings together two things I love: Magnets & Britain’s iconic bus & phone booth.
The one’s above are using tin containers as is, no decoupage, no embellishment… just stick a magnet at the back & voila!
The same goes for this one here: Vintage tins, turned into fridge magnets.
