Once again I must apologize for pulling a Houdini these past few days.
I've been quite busy this week, and I just don't have much blogging energy when I get home. Plus my Ass is sore from sitting on stitches....Grrrrrrr
But forget about that horsehit, here comes Mongo!....Er sorry. Errant movie line!
But forget about my problems, on with Retro Wednesday!
Remember when most kitchen pantry items were made of either glass or tin? The first two pics are off the internet showing what a couple of Bouillon tins looked like from the 40's and 50's. My Wyler Tin is dated 1956, sorry for the blur.
This is a classic example of how families that lived during the depression, utilized all reusable items. My grandmother would use these tins for either holding tooth picks for camping trips, or to hold stick matches. They were air and water tight, and as you can see, they have stood the test of time for years!
The last pic is the open tin lying on my Publishers Clearing House Winning 10 Million Dollor Lucky Number!!!
But really....What would you rather have? A vintage bouillon tin...Or a vintage pipe dream?
See Ya Tomorrow...
