The story of a "Happy Tin"

Hi everyone,
I hope you are well....
We've had another bereavement in the family,
Our nephew (Robert) lost his fight with Cancer....
To keep my mind occupied, I've made this little storage tin,
I hope you like it.

I started life as an empty tin.....
I felt so useless....
Sob, Sob....
Then Sylvia came along & covered me with some glittery wallpaper...
She loves wallpaper....


Then she gave me my lovely Googly eyes,
A cute button nose & a lovely smile....
Now I'm a "Happy Tin"
I can look after Some of Sylvia's buttons....

Sylvia even made me a cute hat,
I am getting a red pompom for Christmas....
I'm so happy....

THE END
