Vintage sewing tin

When I was at Inglewood several months ago, I bought this rather lovely vintage biscuit tin.  I was really taken by the oblong shape of the tin with its decorative geometric border, the sweet colour palette and the fairytale style triptych on the lid. 

The tin which originally housed Nestle's 'High Class "Miniature" Chocolate Assortment', has just been sitting on a shelf looking pretty for a while, but over the weekend I decided it would be perfect as a sewing tin!  So, I decanted all my sewing bits and pieces into the tin, and it's great I've found a use for it at last.
