I have had this candy dispenser for a very long time. My youngest sister Aida made it in middle school. Now she is all grown up and moved on to far bigger creative adventures, like touring the world with Iron and Wine. She is gone for long periods of time, so I don't get to see her very much, and I sure do miss her. since I am not a big candy fan, I filled the dispenser with pistachios and put it on my desk at work. Now I see and use it everyday, and have a nut thinking of my sister!
