This past Christmas Mr. CF & Missy CF gave me a lovely little collection of vintage spice tins. Miss M did all the wrapping herself... not noting that most tins still had their contents inside -- and were not closed. The cayenne pepper tin created quite the spectacular sneeze fest (much to everyone else's entertainment). I definitely remember the smaller tins at top from my childhood and mom remembers the others well. The allspice tin is my favourite... wonder why. :)
How can it be that you see a million spice racks in the thrift stores until you need one? It took me six months to find this baby. I plunked down my $2 and skipped home.
About the only space I have left in my kitchen to hang anything was here, which meant finding a spice rack no wider than 12". You can barely see the thermometer outside the window.... wrapped to 32C. I'm taking my lime fizzy and heading to the lower level where the temperature is more humane. My beverage of choice at home: A tbsp. or so of frozen lime concentrate gently mixed with a can of club soda. Ice cold fizzy goodness. And it's greeny turquoisey in that glass. Can't possibly go wrong with a combo like that.
Thanks for visiting!
