On the theme of old things that mean something, I chose this old allspice tin that my Mom gave me when I first left home in 1967. I love the look, shape and colour of the tin and just keep re-filling it as needed. I was interested to note the text on the back, speaking of the curative qualities of certain spices, something we think of as a more current obsession.
In addition to the allspice container, is a pair of solid jade bookends, given to my father in 1971 and which now belong to me. I have always loved them for their solid heftiness and mix of smooth and jagged edges.
