Now we have my "Wind In The Willows" tin. This is one that I bought myself some years ago because I liked the tin.
It was different to anything I had seen before. It's quite a big tin, big enough to fit a layered cake into.
Because of it's height, there are lots of lovely Wind In The Willows scenes all around it.
The tin originally held something called 'Heartland Cookies'. I remember at the time they were not up to Arnott's standard, but after all, I had bought it for the tin not the contents. I've tried Googling Heartland Cookies and they seem to be an American thing.
It's a fairly modern tin as it has bar codes on it. It is dated 1996 and was imported by Woolworths, though I know I bought it another store. There is a readable stamp on the base that tells me so.
So what does my Wind In The Willows tin hold now? Embroidery threads of course, in particular my DMC Perle cottons. The tin is so full of threads that it is bulging, I really must sort through it. Maybe one day.
