My sister and I began searching for "new" canisters and she found the perfect set for me on Craigslist. Given my weakness for colored glass, the bright yellow glass canisters were perfect. Add their quirky lids and I'm pretty sure that we were meant to be together.
A few months after my move, my niece and I were roaming through one of our favorite antique malls when we discovered a long lost relative of the yellow canisters. The slender blue addition matched perfectly in style, but not color. Much better. More recently, I found a baby for the canister family in another antique store and arranged for an immediate adoption.
Now, isn't that a beautiful family?
