I never thought I’d get so excited about an old, knackered bread tin!! But I saw this on eBay the other day and loved it straight away. Since buying it, I’ve actually found other ones that are in much better condition, but I like the way that this one is all bashed up (it’s even got old crusty burnt bits on it!). I like how it’s been well used – to make lots of lovely home made, Hovis branded bread!
I’m going to get some herbs or some kind of plant to put in it. I think it’ll look lovely on a shelf or windowsill in my kitchen. Unfortunately I don’t have a very good track record of growing or keeping herbs alive, so I might have to cheat and get a good quality fake plant to put in it!!
I am also tempted to buy a newer, usable one, as I think the idea of having some fresh bread with ‘Hovis’ stamped on it is quite a nice idea. I’ve got visions of having people round for lunch and carving up a nice freshly baked loaf…. I can hear my friends gasps of delight already…”Oh wow – isn’t this great, this loaf has ‘Hovis’ baked into it! Such a great idea”!!
