John West - take note!

The tinned fish that I brought home with me from France, not only taste delicious,










but look very decorative on my kitchen shelves too.

Beautifully designed tins! I particularly like the one with the olives on the front. :O)))

Jill said...

What lovely designs.

They are rather splendid - especially the round one with olives on it:)

They remind me of some vintage-looking tuna tins I saw last Saturday while shopping..looking forward to tasting one of your fancy recipes with tinned fish...:)

Very lovely packaging indeed, a welcome bonus that the contents are good too!

How come foreign tins are always so much prettier than ours? I mean, just look at yours - puts dear old John West to shame doesn't it!

Love Julia x x x

Lovely tins, seems a shame to open them. The book was reduced to £9.99 in Sainsbury's that's the reason I bought it. Couldn't have brought myself to spend £20!

Diane, I did find your fragrance in the lovely bottle, and I'm ordering it this evening (was at work when I found it...bad, bad girl!).

So now I want these tins! LOL! I'm going to be in some trouble if I keep this up! It's one thing to spend when a person is out and about, but when sitting in front of the computer at home...hmmm, might be a compulsion! hehe

The French have such design style - these look great

Hmmm....... That's given me an idea for when I go to Honfleur....

HA! I always bring back tins as well!! My favourite is sardines in lemon and basil - yum!! How come the English can't do anything more exciting than olive oil or tomato juice?!!
