This is my sewing kit since I moved out of my parent’s place. It has two layers, which I can lift up the top to reveal the bottom layer to store my button collection. But, for my mother and many of her friends, the Blue Tin was the sewing kit.
DANISH LUXURY COOKIES BAKED IN DENMARK
“The Royal Dansk brand was established in 1966 where a range of crisp, delicious and luxury products were born. The cookies were packed and delivered in a recognisable tin showing the old Danish farmhouse named ‘Hjemstavnsgaard’ from the island of Funen in Denmark.
The tin was used to maintain freshness of the cookies. It was resealable and reusable for storing in general, and some people used it simply as a bowl to serve from. It’s a matter of no surprise that it was known asThe Blue Tin.”—- Royal Dansk Website
As a young child, I know that I am among the many who got tricked into thinking that there were cookies instead. From that time on, we become suspicious whenever we see a Blue Tin just sitting there…. cookie? Or sewing kit?
