An old bent up, rusty, cookie tin. My grandmother used this to save all her buttons as well as other things such as a zipper, giant safety pin, bits of string, a light bulb, and what appears to be an old spent bullet.
Recipes written on the backs of envelopes. My grandmother saved all these scraps of paper with her recipes. Her handwriting, her tweaks, her recipes. Along with her much used tin measuring cup. These items bring back memories from being with my grandmother in her kitchen as a child.
