A Christmas Tin


Hello everyone!  I thought I would show you one of my newest Christmas tins.  I love these things.  I think they look so cheerful and happy.  I got this one at the Salvation Army store a little while back.  I only paid .50 cents for it.  Yesterday, after school, I decided it was time to start filling up some of these tins.  I made pinwheel candy to put inside it.   This is one of our favorite Christmas candies. 


Several people on our gift list will be getting homemade candy this year.  Chuck (oldest son) has already called and gave me his wish list for what he wants in his “goody basket”.  I made some peanut butter and chocolate fudge over the weekend for Dave and Jess.  I will post that recipe soon. 

We will be doing school today as usual.  We plan on taking a 2 week Christmas break starting on Dec.19th.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

  1. A nice, festive tin. I love the idea of filling it with goodies. We do school until the 21st and then they get two weeks off.

    Have a wonderful day with your family.



  2. I love that tin! I want to make your pinwheel candy today or tomorrow-really soon anyway. 🙂 Today we are making granola. I’m not sure how long of a break we will get for Christmas yet. We will have to take something though!


  3. That is a super cute tin! Those candies look delicious too. I didn’t know you had a son. Hope you have a great day.

  4. I love Christmas tins! It is so festive! We do the same for Christmas. After next week, we will be on our break also. That’s when we will do our baking. 🙂 I am going to have to try that candy. It looks so yummy and what a wonderful reminder of your friend. I hope you have a wonderful day.



  5. Donna, are the pinwheels like the peanut butter candy we used to get at the Grundy High School cafeteria? If, so I know your uncle John would love to have the recipe 🙂

    Always enjoy your pictures and blogs….even if I don’t take time to comment!

    Love you…Elaine
