How cute is this??



How cute is this?? It is a small tin suitcase measuring about 10cm x 5cm. While we were in Melbourne we had to visit Haighs chocolate shop (essential!!) and I fell in love with this. It was filled with 'speckles' (round chocolate buttons covered with 100's & 1000's). I had to do quite a bit of fast talking to convince SH it was absolutely imperative I had it , that no it wouldn't join our house of hoarding chaos and I would in fact think of a use for it!!!!!!! The chocolate was consumed last night so now to put it to work!! Thought it might be the right size to carry threads for a small stitching project.

It's sooooooo cute!!! It would be perfect for threads, or packets of needles, or how about bobbins?

What a lovely tin...and the chocolates that went inside. Congrats on your 20th Anniversary. It was also mine this week on the 4th 20 years. I love your elephants from Noah Ark.

It was well worth it after 20 years of marriage you had to have chocolate!!! Congrats by the way.
