Christmas Tins

This year's Christmas windows, as in the past, were inspired by our December charity.  They were also inspired by our tenth anniversary (which is the tin anniversary).  Our December charity is Food Banks Canada.  FBC is the only national charitable organization dedicated to helping Canadians living with hunger.  They do this today through support of over 500 food banks across Canada as well as by finding ways to reduce and eliminate hunger in the future by influencing policy through research, awareness raising and advocacy.
The 'Christmas Tins' windows started with many rolls of tin foil.  I wanted to do a modern take on old fashioned paper garland chains.  After cutting, folding and forming somewhere north of 1,000 pieces of foil, the links in the chains were joined and hung to make a fairly delicate garland curtain.  The Christmas trees were made with inverted pot pie tins with painted bottoms.  The color palette is a 1950's Christmas palette which works nicely with the pair of Saarinen chairs.  I thought those chairs would have sold as soon as I brought them into the shop, but everything happens for a reason.  They were just the right pieces to finish off the windows.
During the month of December, we will be donating ten percent of the profit from each sale at MTA to Food Banks Canada.  If you would like to learn more about this wonderful organization or donate directly, please visit them at https://www.foodbankscanada.ca/
Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and peaceful holiday season!  May your Christmas tins be filled with love, good memories and tasty treats.
