Major ooops!!! Am I alone here?!
~do share any secrets (if you dare!), plus all the juicy bits of course...
'promise' not to tell ...errr-errr???

I love these boxes and I love secrets. I'm good at keeping other people's secrets, but I'm lousy at keeping my own!! xo

My youngest can't keep a secret to save his life! So what I want "slipped" I let slip to him LOL!

Your new header freaked me out!

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Love those tins! I'm a secret keeper so go ahead and confess!!

"promise not to tell anybody else!" I love this phrase! When you speak this out, a secret is not a secret anymore!

Simply Colette said...

I keep others secrets... never my own. Quite quilty of TMI... ;)

Kay said...

i have my own secret tin (only they are wooden) and i adore them; and share the wealth inside, for what is a secret if not for sharing? :)

Sal said...

The boxes are just darling - I love old tins! I'm terrible with secrets, especially if they have to do with gifts I've purchased for friends or family.

Her name was Lola said...

I would love to keep all my secrets in a pretty painted box or two! What a charming idea.

Cheers.

Sam said...

Cuties! I'm a bit of a box collector - they are great for bits of bling and trinkets. I'm pretty good at secrets I think!

drollgirl said...

Style Porn said...

I would just like to say how much I enjoy visiting your blog and seeing a bright and shiny new header that puts a smile on my face.

And these tins are precious! I have a set of 3 that I got from Ikea recently that I like. But I still don't know what to put in them...

cherie said...

I love containers young and old. Very nice treasures you found.

I love this quote, "If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees." and try to live by it. I'm not always successful. LOL... xoxo

Kristin said...

I loooooooove hearing a good secret. Such a weakness of mine. Does that make me a gossip? Oh well. Ah ha

Gabbi said...

Lovely boxes and tins! Especially that brown one... too pretty! :)

Madeleine Miranda said...

I remember reading a story when I was younger about a girl who could never keep secrets so she would whisper them to the trees.... I wish I still had that book

your boxes are beautiful, I'd keep my secrets in them too

tina tarnoff said...

I love tin boxes, perfect for anything. and I do not knowhow to keep a secret. I would like to, desperatly, but I always tell. I'm not a bad person, really, it just comes out!

ana b. said...

Neither am I. I say to people not to tell me anything they wouldn't want at least four other people they don't know to hear. But I'll keep a secret of yours if you give me one of those vintage tins. Cross my heart ;)
