Friday favourites

I spied this old ceramic tin on my Mum's fridge last year... it was collecting dust behind a few things and certainly wasn't displayed in a prime position... which got me thinking... "maybe Mum doesn't really want it!!!" then the excitement kicked in because all I could see was my new jewellery box. While I don't usually go for much yellow in decor - I just love it! I would really like to know the story behind it. All I know is that it was given to my great-grandmother Sylvia Steele by her neighbour, possibly used as a biscuit tin... My Nanna, Norma Jean (Sylvia's daughter) is 83 so that makes it probably 150 years old... which we Aussies consider OLD! :-)
