My Favorite Tin

This tin was a gift, and I keep it out all year round just so I can see it every day.
It was given to me by one of the thriftiest gals ever - my first MIL.
You know how I love thrifty!  Mister calls me a skinflint.
There is half of an old mailing label on the bottom, so I know it was at least secondhand before it was mine!

Happy White Wednesday!  Do make sure to visit Kathleen for this wonderful party!

That's a lovely and elegant tin. Do you know what it was first used for?

That's very pretty; it would be great to store hard candy in!

Makes me want a butter cookie and cup of tea.

Never seen a tin like it before it makes a statement, makes you want to open it to see what's in it.

Very pretty. I would keep it out all the time also.

Hi Carol,
Your tin is very pretty and sentimental for you. It's nice you keep it out to enjoy all year.
Have a good week
