A tiny shelf in my kitchen is devoted to these oft-used tins and bottles — coveted for their packaging but beloved for their contents.

Everything else in my kitchen is black, white, or wood, but even a control-enthusiast like me needs a splash of color around. By some miracle or unconscious choice, all of the tins have cheerful yellows and reds, which go nicely with the black and white surroundings. They're so cute I would probably keep them on display even if I didn't use them, but I use them all the time — perhaps because I have them on display!

What small, colorful items add zest to your home?
