Sorry for my extended absence. Right when I got caught up on the superbuzzy packages, I got the nasty cold that’s been going around, and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. Today I had a coughing attack so severe I was convinced I was going to throw up (I was actually gagging because of the force of the cough).
Have I ever discussed my collection of Japanese tins? Those Japanese, they are really into souvenirs and the giving of gifts and over-the-top packaging, so you can just imagine what this means for the decorative tin industry. I have a small collection, mostly hand-me-downs from my mother. The tins once held cookies (hello, Yoku Moku) or rice crackers or chocolates. I was too lazy to photograph them all (and really, they’re not that exciting), but I did photograph my latest acquisition, and I think it is quite appropriate for Valentine’s Day.
Have a great Valentine’s Day, everyone, and I’ll try to get my act together and start crafting again.
