Especially since it has a hole to let it hang by the hearth, it would be a convenient and safe method to shovel out the cinders or embers from a fireplace, cover it with the sliding top, and dispose of them. Then it would hang to the side of the hearth until it was needed again. Just an idea. Posted: 3:53 am on February 14th

msjunking writes: Thanks for the comments!!! I looked at the candle box and it's not a match. My box has a divided sliding part in the middle of the box. You use the lid to divide the box with.

I can't agree with the recipe box either~~~the cards won't fit in it right!!

Please keep the ideas coming~~~~when we get a right answer I'll let everyone know!! It's a puzzle !!! Posted: 5:29 am on February 13th
