A few little jelly beans surrounding a softly lit pink candle, on an old crystal dish, sit on my kitchen counter this evening.
Two older tins that I pulled from my kitchen cupboard, and was ready to get rid of them. But, I got an idea from a few pastel drawer pulls that I found in the dollar bins of the Michael's Store last week.
I asked my husband to drill two holes in the lids of the two tins. He did use two shorter screws than the ones included in the packaged pulls, for these tins.
I spray painted the two colorful tins and lids, white. Then I put the drawer pulls in the drilled hole and turned the screw tight. I added two tags. I did not spray the inside of the tins, as I will put a celephone bag in each one, and fill with cookies or mini muffins. A fun and inexpensive way to give a hostess or anytime gift.
I did see in this enlarged picture, that I need to touch up some of the paint on the tin. When pictures are enlarged like these are, they certainly show every imperfection.
In cleaning out cupboards, I also found this picture of our three daughters at Easter, many years ago.
An old dish and jelly beans, recycled old tins, and a treasured old picture...are just a little something from me tonight.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
