Ta-da! Another incredible tin for the gallery. I got a great one from Stifflersmom
today! When I unwrapped the box, I figured it would be interesting.
Ha! But it got better when I opened it. Lookie, lookie, lookie!
Mmmmmm. Lime Jell-O with carrots.
That's some kind of plastic doily thing under the food. I think the Jell-O salad may be resin. But I'm not positive. It has glitter and bugle beads for shredded carrots.
The glorious inside, including a pink paper doily:
Awesome goodies. I put them all on, Liberace-style.
The shrinky swallow hair clips didn't show up so well in the photo, but they're great. (And, yes, that's craft mess in the background.)
I don't know how, but somehow Stifflersmom has a sixth sense for my taste. I love the nest pin, and the "I'm in the doghouse" pin, but there's one that's just uncanny. She sent me two resin-and-bottlecap pins (a retro snowman photo, and "la muerte" skeleton with floating watch parts). Love them. The funny thing is that I just bought a brooch with watch parts from norsgoebel's etsy shop this week
. It arrived two days ago, and I wore it yesterday. And the one she sent is entirely different and wonderful. How does Stifflersmom know that I'm a fan of such things? Is it witchcraft?
Anyway, some more pictures. She put some awesome Jell-O salad magnets in the box, but I don't think it's cheating if they stick to the tin itself!
The bottom of the tin. Gosh, I'm getting less and less hungry by the minute!
Here's my former "candy dish," which I've used since I emptied a tin to recon for her.
And now: Much better!Thank you, Stifflersmom! I love it all! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
