These beautiful vintage tin mini jello/cake molds can be used for so much more than jello! Make soaps, wax melts, bath fizzies, flan, rice pudding, or just lovely office organization for all those loose bits like pushpins and paper clips.
Each mini tin mold measures approximately 1 and 1/2 inches deep and about 3 and 3/4 inches wide. These charming tin molds are in good vintage condition and have not been washed or used since found.

So exciting starting a new venture! Everyday I have to remember to pace myself and really take time to sort out ALL the details because my heart always says jump now, and look later! And I know that’s not always the smartest decision. I guess my fear is that my heart will dream bigger dreams than reality can ever deliver. But I like to stay juuuuust naive enough always go for whatever it is I dream up next, and I guess that’s a good thing. Cuz I’m going for it!
The current thing I’m obsessing over is product packaging that is both cost effective (for a startup) and still special and my own. So many wonderful ideas out there that it’s almost overwhelming. I can’t seem to commit to one solid idea/ color scheme / branding direction. I almost want to hand it over to someone else! Only I know I can’t kid myself – I’m too much of a control freak! So for now, I’ll be over at Pinterest letting my imagination run wild. It’s part of the fun anyways
Public service announcement: Ask your Dr. to test your Vitamin D levels if you suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and or you suffer from depression. It may be a lifesaver. SO Important!
Not an announcement yet, but I’m just excited to share a bit about my new little venture. Here’s just one of the sweet items I’ll be selling on Shugarplum, my online shop where I’ll be selling some vintage-y beautiful things for the home and office.
According to sausage wikia, salchichon is a type of sausage made with cured meat, mostly lean pork and some bacon seasoned with salt and some spices such as pepper, nutmeg, cloves and corriander. This whole mass, chopped, is left to marinate for about 24 hours then stuffed into intestines of beef or pork then hung to cure which can be done by smoking or simply air-drying for several days. There are also sausage mixtures containing meats such as pork and beef, or pork and wild boar, venison, etc.
- 24 thick slices of salchichon sausage
- 4 sandwich rolls (I used lightly toasted Kaiser buns for this recipe)
- 1/2 head of med. cabbage thinly sliced
- 2 tbs mayonaise
- 1 tbs ketchup
- 1 tbs yellow mustard
- few splashes of red hot sauce
- salt and pepper
- splash of oil (optional) and vinegar
- In a large bowl, season the thinly sliced cabbage with salt and pepper, to taste, a drizzle of olive oil and vinegar and a few dashes of red hot sauce. Mix well to distribute seasoning throughout. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, ketchup and mustard. Set aside.
- In a pan (no oil) fry up the salchichon slices for about 2 minutes on each side and drain on a dish with a few paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
- Toast your rolls lightly and spread the "salsa rosa" on the rolls. Assemble your sandwiches by placing 4-6 slices on each roll and adding a bunch of the slaw on top of the sausage slices. Place the top bun to finish each sandwich and enjoy!
- Great served with herbed roasted potatoes, a delicious potato, or pasta salad on the side.
