Coffee, Tea and Sugar...

Loving my new purchase - Coffee, Tea and Sugar canisters...



As much as I loved the Dutch stoneware containers, they were way too small as I was forever re-filling them!


I had been keeping my eye on these  larger ones for a while and at 30% off today why wouldn't you?  That clinched the deal to put it mildly. Can you see the difference in size?

.  
I bought them from our local House and Garden store ,and at first I thought they were enamel ware. They look like chipped enamel but I was surprised to find they were china.  Loving that look on the kitchen shelf!


My absolute last rose in the garden. I pruned them yesterday, well okay......cut them right back quite harshly, and was amazed this one survived!

Linking up to Courtney's  Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage.

They look great, and they are definately at least twice the size of your other canisters.

We are still getting lots of roses down here. I'm waiting for them to stop so I can prune my bushes right back too. I did what you advised me to do back in January and prune and leave. It worked a treat.

I love your new containers! I've also been surprised recently about things looking as if they were enamel but were actually china.

Very cute! Our garden roses are just barely starting to show some signs of life. Spring has begun! Do you have fall foliage down there? Changing leaves and all that?
