I have been meaning to share a gift my husband and I received at Christmas time from his mother, Virginia.
At first glance it looks like an old tin, not too fancy. My mother in law knows that I like tins, there are several around our house. I will share some pictures of just a few of the many.
So when I first saw this is was drawn to it and wanted to see what was inside
When we opened the tin we found 3 razors
The razors belonged to my husbands father, grandfather and great grandfather. I don't know anyone who uses this kind a razor these days, do you?
Then came the buttons and buckles
more buttons and buckles
I wish I had taken a picture of my grandson Landon helping me go through them and oohing and aahing at all of the colors and shapes. It reminded me of the hours I spent playing with my grandmothers button tin.
Then we found this!
It is one of our wedding favors.
We actually wrapped some kind of cake in foil and put it inside the bell, whatever is left of it is still inside. I don't think I have seen a wedding favor quite like ours for many years. I guess it held up pretty well for 38 plus years. I am not planning to check the cake out though.
We had fun with the tin and I will enjoy using the buttons or just taking them out to look through with our grandchildren.
