Blue Vintage First Aid Tin

What would you use it for?

I've got a fondness for anything blue, and if it's old and rustic, so much the better.

Hubby found this and thought of me, which makes it doubly sweet.

Blue and Rustic Vintage Tin

You could use this for a sewing box, or to plant succulents in (if you didn't mind punching some drainage holes) or just to display with other eclectic blue things in your collection.

However you decide to put it to use, or just to enjoy, there is nothing guaranteed to lift your mood than something like this, with obvious age and weathering, and yet still functional.

The inside of this tin still has the list of items that it used to hold, from bandages to tweezers; everything a person would ever need for a minor medical emergency.

The lid has a handle, and there's a great little catch to keep it closed.

The original logo on the top is weathered and worn but still legible; this company, MSA Canada, put together the first aid kits for Workmans Compensation Board, now changed to the more politically correct Workers Compensation.  That dates this vintage tin to around 1983 when that term was phased out.

Now it holds my small collection of essential oils, to display or keep in the dark, where they hold their scent.

So, if you found this tin at a garage sale, or in the recycle center, what would you use it for?
