I covered up the printed bit that said coffee and sugar on each respectively. As you can see, I had already done the same on a larger one that was originally printed 'dishwasher tablets' that I got as a total bargain. And then I felt a bit guilty about the lack of effort and thought you'd probably want a little more from me. So I cheered them up a bit. They are still tins for use in my laundry room And indeed, they are already in use. My 'room' is the width of the washing machine and sits between the bedroom and bathroom upstairs. It is not grand, but I do have to look at it every day, so I decided to do away with ugly. And I do love the retro tinware that's suddenly so available. After all, as a crafter, storage is the next hobby!
I'm pretty sure you weren't expecting this sort of detail though. I know that over time, I will get used to knowing exactly what is in which tin. But what about that glorious day Lord, when persons other than me put a load on to wash? How confusing will they find it, and worse, will they have to ask or ring me? Or even worse, guess?! So, I labelled them..coupla buttons, Stazon and a mini alphabet. Sorted. And my blood pressure returns to normal control freak levels.
Now, I just need to sort out the liquids.....and get my life back! I'm linking this to Annie's Friday Smile...because frankly, it's the sort of thing that makes me smile about other people. I'm turning into Suzy Home-maker!
Have a lovely weekend!
