Red tins and new finds

I love the color RED.

Make it something metal, especially tin and shiny red....... I am in heaven.

Oooh la la........ French, metal and red. C'est Bon.

Red and green, my favorite combo!

Sweet Hor's d'oeuvres trays and matching serving tray.

A special treat. I have never seen one of these before, a cracker tin with a special anti-moisture feature........ a Krispy Kan.

The design is so adorable. A flower made with crackers, pretzels, popcorn and chips.

The lid has a glass knob (DRI-KNOB) filled with crystals. The Krispy Kan will keep crackers, potato chips, popcorn, pretzels, peanuts, dry cereals and many other foods crisp and tasty.

The directions for use of the "DRI-NOB" appear under the lid. The crystals are first heated in a hot oven turning bright blue. In use, the Blue Magic Dri-Knob will slowly turn pink in color, as it absorbs moisture. When the pink color appears, merely repeat the heating process. What a neat idea.

I am joining my favorite party Wednesday is Rednesday. Please join Sue @ Its a Very Cherry World for a bit of color today. It certainly helps make all the snow outside my window a little more bearable.....blizzard conditions, school cancellations and parking bans. Such Fun. Hope everyone stays safe and warm.

Got it at Goodwill.

Hi Sherrie!
You lucky, you have the best stuff. I adore all of your red tins but good gosh the last one is double/triple the fun! Love the cracker flowers so much and the "Dri-Nob" is a hoot - make that the "blue magic dri-nob"!

Happy Rednesday,

Hi Sherry!
I am Jacqueline from Once Upon a Fairyland. (my childhood home) I know Myrna and saw your comment on her blog so I thought I'd come over and meet a new friend.

Your blog is so cute and inspiring. Makes me want to go to work for Goodwill!

I love anything cute, if it's not cute, I generally don't like it...tee hee.

I love gnomes, elves, pixies and dogs and God! I've been blogging now for two years and it's been sure delight!

Hope you have time to pop over to visit!
