The Recipe for Love





The Recipe for Love:

This is a pop art influenced canister featuring a loving housewife and her very happy husband. The woman is shown with a grocery bag full of all the ingredients she needs for "the recipe for love", as many of the food items dance around the gleeful couple.

You can display this delightful piece as a candle votive, pen or pencil holder, trinket container, or as a stunning work of art. This also makes a great gift for holding baked goods, candies, soaps, bath salts, teas, etc. Also in my shop are some beautiful satin pouches that fit perfectly in this canister and can contain candies, cookies, soap, teas, etc.





In these pictures, the shine on the canister is from the glossy Mod Podge finish. I applied two coats of Mod Podge to this canister so the images are protected, yet you can still feel the fun texture of the freckles!

The eco-friendly recycled materials used in this item are: a tin can, magazine clippings, and recycled paper. This piece measures 4 1/2 inches tall and 3 inches wide. The interior of this tin is painted a gorgeous hunter green. Canisters like this one were opened with a special can opener that cuts with a very smooth edge, so you can touch the top of the canister and be completely safe!
