Thrifty Find

I found this at one of my thrifty shopping places. I was so excited when I spotted it and it only costed $5.00. I already had one. I had received mine from my cousin, Marilyn. She had purchased it from a flea market around the Dallas area a couple of years ago. I had first seen it when cousin Paige brought it to the family reunion filled with cookies and feel in love with it.

There was some speculation as to what exactly it was. Some thought it was from a church used for communion, others thought it was for camping. Well, in the September Country Home magazine, in the cool junk section, they have one pictured. They say its a camping tin. It breaks apart into several sections. In the magazine they have it re purposed as a catch-all-organizer.

I gave this one to my mom. She was happy to receive it. I think she has been wanting one for awhile. Mom and Dad filled it with homemade cookies to take on our trip to Missouri. We all enjoyed those delicious sweets.

We will be heading to the dog park later today so Devil Dog can run and play. And then get ready for the up coming week. I hope you are enjoying the last bit of your weekend!
