Yellow Canisters

I have canisters on my vintage brain this week.  So, I thought as long as I've been thinking about canisters I'd share the ones I got in June of 2009 at a garage sale in Williston.  The sale was behind a big, beautiful house most likely built in the 1900's or 1910's.
I was surprised that they only wanted 4$ for the whole set!  Score!  I was excited to find yellow canisters because I eventually want a buttercream yellow kitchen (*ahem* with white cabinets).
These "Nasturtium" canisters are in good condition with the outside (largest) one being just a bit more faded than the others.  I store some of my favorite vintage linens, tea towels, tablecloths, etc in them and they live above my cupboards.  I wish I knew what decade they were from.  I'm guessing late 40's but I just don't know for sure.

 "Farmwife at Midlife"  has canisters, a match holder and breadbox done in the same pattern but red and she thinks they are also from the 40's.  The breadbox is so cool!

Isn't this neat!  I found this cake carrier on Etsy, but it had already been sold.  I have no room for something as big as this, but it sure is fun to look at!

And check THIS out!!  Kettle Korner has the whole set in yellow!

Fun, fun, fun!  Have a Happy Day!
