Cabbage Soup and Tin Cans


 

I will be hard-pressed to convince Tim, who doesn't particularly like (hmmm, maybe he really dislikes???) cabbage soup, that I really was craving some and that it had absolutely NOTHING to do with the Tin Can Lanterns I shared this morning ...that required vegetable cans! Seriously ... I bought the cabbage a week ago with this soup in mind... THAT'S my story and I'm sticking to it!

So, going with the premise that I was not swayed by these adorable Punched Tin Lanterns featured on Craft Foxes...

Graciously Accepting Gifts @ The Magic Onions
