Mjusea Quizzical

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice!

Carnegie Hall is the ultimate place for serious music and musicians.

IS:

Christmas Tree out of Tins

Dear Readers,

Over the years I’ve collected many tins of all kinds. This year I wanted to use my Christmas tins as decoration. So I thought II’d try to turn them into a Christmas tree. After 2 attempts where walls of tins came tumbling down, with major racket and clanging on my wood floor, I got it. Neighbor Marci took some great photos. This was my favorite. Note there is one New Years tin in the mix, and of course an Angel on the top!

See blog for photo!…
