Once home, and I really look, beauties such as this tin sometimes appear. It was covered in sellotape and labels and in a bag, in a bag (or I doubt it would of got passed health and safety).
Stuff like this whisks me back to Nana Jay’s ( my great-grandmother) a house full of stuff she’d had most of her life. From a time when everyone knew the effort and skill it took to makes. A time when stuff was valued, looked after, repaired and passed around.
