While beautiful boxes are a nice storage solution for some, photographer and author Surrey Blackburn - who lives in Pacifica, California - prefers using tins, because:
- They don't get mouldy in our damp coastal environment.
- They don't cave in on the top.
- They can remind you fondly of their original contents.
She also notes that Christmas tins are great for storing Christmas lights, cards, stickers, and cookie cutters.
Surrey kindly sent me photos of her tins; these are just three of the twelve.
Anyone else have some favorite storage you'd like to share? Send me an e-mail and include some photos.
