Our imagination is our guide.

I had never heard of Altoids Chewing Gum until Sharney gave me a couple of these old tins. It makes sense, I suppose, that Altoids made gum at some point, as they are owned by Wrigley.  I like these tins. They have a long profile, they are deep, the inside is concave and very reflective. I used the shiny inside to give the illusion of even more flowers and ivy.

    Fantastic! You do really amazing teeny skeletons and great little scenes. (It’s also really cool when you show one of the tiny items held in a pair of tweezers, really emphasizes the scale. But I’ll take whatever you include in your post!)

      She’s holding some reeds that extend out of the tin. I should have tweezed them. :) Thanks Cindy.
