fairy mints

Has anyone seen these before? I found them in Des Moines when we were there for my brother's wedding. I bought them because I thought the tin was so fabulous. The mints, unfortunately, taste like bad rose perfume, but I didn't care about that.

I've been having some luck selling clothing items on e-bay, so this weekend I'm going to go through my closet, cull those things I no longer wear and post them online. I'm a plus-size gal and I've noticed that it's very difficult to find nice plus size clothing in second hand stores, so others like me tend to grab things when they can get them on e-bay. Now I just have to decide what to do with all my money! (Maybe buy more clothes? Nah!)

It absolutely feels like a Louisiana swamp here today--so humid the moisture is literally dripping from the trees. At least it isn't as hot.

I hope you are all having a good day.

That's a beautiful tin but how canmints be mints if they are rose flavoured - can't imagine what they taste like.

Great shape tin, chuck out the mints and put beads in!

I bought some mints recently because I liked the tin!! Those mints weren't up to much either.

Of course, I think your hard earned cash should go on fabric :)

The best tins always contain the worst candies - the way they get you to buy em.....but who cares about the mints - THAT TIN IS GORGEOUS!
