A New Treasure

We've discussed my love for antiques previously.
To me, a perfect day is one in which I escape to one of
several favorite antique malls and lose myself 
amidst the displays.

Today was just such a day.
By the end of my treasure hunting
I had found this beauty.

It is an old iron candy machine
and it works perfectly.
It was red, but I decided that black would
look perfect in my kitchen....
so a coat of paint later, this is what it looks like.

M&M's are something we always keep in the house.
The kids expect it.
So now we have the perfect place to keep them.

Each turn of the handle dispenses 2 pieces of candy...
a perfect ration for a quick "goody" fix!
