From the vintage metals of tin, bronze and pewter to new age steel, chrome and titanium, we can all appreciate the HUGE selection of metal and/or metallic delights one can find on Etsy. I love seeing 60’s style aluminum toaster-ovens for sale, or those luxurious napkins with metallic sparkle yarn. Some use metal clay in their jewelry-or use a little copper wire in pottery creations. We asked our CIJ Teamies to tell us about their adventures with metals & metallics. Here’s what we heard:

I love metal items! Especially when they are old, scuffed and have a nice patina!

My daughter and I are always on the look-out for litho toys that have been “well-loved!”

When I’m photographing tea sets, I think about the children who had tea parties and used their imaginations (!) to entertain themselves.

This sweet tray was made by Ohio Art. The artist’s name is Elaine Ends Hileman and she designed this in 1949.
