Every time my parents visit, my dad insists on bringing me stuff he has cleared out from his garage. In this case, it was a dirty tin full of old nails, screws, nuts and bolts. I'm afraid the contents have been relagated to an old plastic ice cream container, 'cos this tin was far too adorable for such a use. I gave it a scrub and it is now home to my acrylic paints. It makes me happy just to look at it! Thanks Dad! Don't you just love vintage tins? This one was from Burtons Gold Medal Biscuits.
