I can remember as a kid going into people's houses that would have candy dishes in the living room. I don't remember specifics just snatches of being with my mom and being offered a piece of candy from a pretty little dish. Was it the candy or the dish that made such an impression? I found several fluted heart tins at one of our local antique stores and thought one might make a sweet valentine candy dish. So maybe it was the dish, as I really didn't think about the actual candy until later!
I painted the tin and used silver and red chenille stems for the handle. Glittered it up, too! At this point, my daughter is thinking, "Oh, no!" She likes vintage things in their original condition. And for a lot of things, that probably is best. But...this heart tin is getting a new life and will be loved! I'm thinking I should have put some of those cute circles on my kisses to cover their bare bottoms!
Oh, aren't valentine cards fun to create? Such sweet images - love all the angels and cherubs. The glitter's a little easier to see on the card. Must have had better lighting!
