Pretty pink bread box...........

Actually, only the top is pink, but it is pretty.
I purchased this from a local antique store and
the tag said "1940 bread box". This is a far cry
from the ugly plastic packaging we now see
bread in! I am planning to RE-USE this in my
creative space, maybe for stamps. My blogging
friend Beth says we should think re-use and I
like her way of thinking! We are such a wasteful
and disposable society.

The back of the bread box has a vent, which
is interesting to me. We close bread up in a
plastic bag to keep the air out.

Speaking of re-using items, check out this photo
holder. I purchased this from a different antique
store and love it! I am not sure about all of the
pieces, but the button and ornate metal piece
on the bottom make this special.

I use it to display a special photo or
vintage holiday card. Have a great
evening. Kana


  1. Oh Kana another beauty! That Bread box is a winner!! I have a couple of tins that size from a Homewares outlet (new)I go to that I use in my pantry to store packets of things in. Not as nice as that though for Vintage charm! No room for a bread box on my counters. Besides I always freeze my bread to keep it fresher longer. But I always love using my 'Bread tins' in my pantry :) Irene x
