March Silver Sunday

It's Silver Sunday at Applejack Lane.  Usually, I show you nicely polished silver pieces, but today I am really stretching it with my collection of tin lunch pails and buckets. These were the forerunners of the modern day lunch box for school children and day laborers of yesteryear.
Three sizes of lunch buckets depending upon one's appetite...
A milk pail...



A shaker either salt or pepper...
Thanks for stopping in today.  Please visit the Gypsy Fish Journal for more Silver Sunday fun.

Joan, your tin lunch pail & bucket collection is cool! Do you ever wonder who owned these and where they've been?! I bet if they could talk they would share some interesting lunchtime memories! (kinda a silly thought, but fun!)

Thanks for stopping by my place today! Have a wonderful weekend!

Warmly,
Lori

Joan, thanks for the visit to my Food for Thought post. I took half the pie to a friend yesterday, and just noticed that someone has consumed the last piece left in the pie dish. Guess it's time to make another. :-)
Your lunch pail collection is fun. I love to assembly a group of similar items. You've got a wonderful thing going here. Thanks for sharing.

Such a great collection. I love them all, their shapes and sizes are so wonderful. Aren't you glad we don't have to use one of those anymore. Great treasures. Hugs, marty

Hi Joan:
What a great collection of lunch baskets! I also love the crocheted mat you place them on. It's lovely!

Thanks for visiting Brynwood again. I'm enjoying visiting all my followers and their creative blog homes. Looking forward to seeing you at the tea party tomorrow, too!

Happy Silver Sunday!

Hi there. I just love your pail and bucket collection. It is more my kind of silver than the fancy polished pieces. Thanks for sharing.
