WOYWW

 This week at woyww I thought I'd share with you all the edible containers I've collected that are on my desk storing my stash........Recycling is what I'm doing( thats my excuse for eating more) but I did enjoy eating the contents, the shortbread tin now holds my bottles of glimmer mist, I adore shortbread but I only ever treat myself to it at Christmas, the bean tin (must get round to altering that) holds my Sakura pens and the container with stickles in originally contained a Summer fruits trifle which just happens to be on offer at the moment hence I've got a couple of these containers ....yum yum, they are so handy, so I may need another container/trifle again this week....lol.




happy wednesday off to check out some other desks now
hugs from Daniele x

Edible containers are just the best ... once I ate about 42 pots of chocolate pudding because I wanted the little glass bowls lined up in my craft room ... not all at once you understand :0)

Love the shortbread tin. Way to recycle with a purpose. Even better that you were able to eat the contents beforehand. Organization at its finest! Happy WOYWW.

That would be a good place to hide the chocolate by letting everyone think they are now craft storage...
Thanks for the snoop!

Serendipity Stamping said...

No one could throw the bus tin away. Interesting to see the different packing tins, boxes, etc. around the world also. Thanks for sharing.

Nan said...

I enjoyed seeing your recycled tins. One of the things i enjoy most is going to the thrift store to look for neat storage items or things to re art ! :) Nan

Chrissie said...

Crikey Daniele, when I started reading this post I thought you meant you were going to eat the containers! I was relieved to read it was just the contents... and they did sound yummy!

Bluefairy4U said...

I had a little chuckle at your desk very clever. I always look at things to recycle but after a little time I say why have I kept that ! Good luck and Hugs Jo. xxx

jodpea said...

I looked at the pic first and really hoped u weren't intending to alter that bus - its ace already! Most of the containers in the cake section of the supermarket (muffins, cornflake cakes etc) r great for this.. THATS y I always make a beeline for that aisle, of course!

Elliephant said...

I have just rescued a bean tin for storing pens in. Just got to liberate a few more to get myself sorted. Trifle doesn't count as pudding if you need it for the container btw!

Claireliz said...

Oooh love that tin :0)

Julia Dunnit said...

Ooh I posted last week about my notebook collection - you should call this collection a small obsession too- although they are useful! Anyhelp you need emptying the next lot - call me!

SYLVIA-ANNE said...

Hi Daniele - how lucky are you, working for Thorntons - their Alpinis are to die for!
Love your recycling ideas - particularly the biscuit tin. I suddenly feel quite hungry .....!! Thanks for visting my workspace today!
Hugs, Sylvia x

Carola Bartz said...

Daniele, thank you for stopping by my blog! I love how you recycle all those tins - great re-usage.
My dad loves Thorntons. Whenever I went to London (I had a boyfriend in London back in the 80's when I was still living in Germany) he asked me to bring him a box of Thornton's fudge...

Lou and Mel said...

My favourite type of recycling!

Paula Gale said...

i also have two bean tins waiting to be altered and got fed up of them sitting there reminding me i'd not done it - so hid them in my cupboard - so, they still need doing but i don't have the constant guilt trip all day everyday LOL

Love to see what you do with yours when you get round to it!
