My Hubby built this tin punch pie safe for Christmas 2007.
I had one 18 years ago, which he built, due to the move from the city to the country, and with limited space. I had to sale it at a garage sale, for $100.00.
In 2007 Hubby surprised me, well almost, I sort of caught a little of it in his shop, I was standing a far, but it hit me, he not making shelves for his shop, its my pie safe. I went on a hunt, for the picture of my old pie safe! I found it! Yes! I wanted him to remember the tin punch design, which I had did the tin punch on the old one. I left it out for him to find and just said, Oh there is my pie safe! lol
On top sit one of my favorite roosters, behind the old church cookie jar, rooster salt and pepper shakers, a lemon juicer, just like the one my Mother had. Another rooster, in front of the tin, I love to collect tins too. There is an old pot filled with the wheat, which my grandson’s and I pounded into flour!
My hubby is the greatest, he built the tin punch pie safe from the wood, we took from our walls, and the tin is from an old air condition unit. He pounded his heart into the tin, for it was almost Christmas and had to work fast. He still has two knobs to put on the doors, like the ones on the drawer. He inscribed the back , To my wife, on Christmas 2007 Love Hubby, not! he signed his name. lol I am so lucky to have my wonderful tin punch pie safe back again, and a wonderful husband that takes such good care of me.
This one is not going anywhere ever! The pie safe or the man. lol
I hope you like my show and tell, go to Kelli’s, at There’s No Place Like Home for More Show and Tell Friday.

  3. You are very lucky my dear to have a husband with such fine craftsmanship! Lucky in deed.

    I got the tea chest from “The English Tea store” on-line and I paid like $15 for it because it was an imperfection. My sister got one first and we couldn’t find any imperfections on them and so I got one and I had just one little nick in it that you couldn’t see. Well worth the money. Go for it!
