This is one of those things that I am so excited about I almost can't bring myself to sell it.

Yes. It's the epitome of geeky. In is, in fact, a canister set showcasing what I consider the Geek Triumverate: Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and the Lord of the Rings.

To start with, these canisters are vivid green--somewhere between lime and "spring"--and each one is ceramic and rather heavy. Two (the largest and the smallest) come with wooden spoons that slip into the spoon holder on the back side.

And they break down like this:

Canister 1: The medium-sized canister belongs to "Sugar," which I have painted on the front side of the canister in a font you might recognize as belonging to one Harry James Potter. On the lid, I painted the quote, "Don't let the Muggles get you down." -Ron Weasley. And on the back, you'll find a black, embellished sign of the Deathly Hallows. (If you'd prefer this to face the front, it is easy as pie to switch around the metal clasps.)

Canister 2: The large one. "Flour" is emblazoned upon this front in what I would consider "New Who" font, which is the easiest to duplicate. On the top I have painted this quote: "We're all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?" -The Doctor; and on the back, I have depicted a silhouetted representation of the TARDIS.

Canister 3: The small canister was, at first, a bit of a conundrum for me, because I couldn't decide what should go on it. Do many people store brown sugar in their canisters? Powdered sugar? In the end, I settled on "Coffee," because most people store that in their kitchens in some way or another. This font is straight from Middle-earth, and the quote is one of Gandalf's: "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us." On the back I painted the White Tree of Gondor... in black.

Well. There you have it. This will, I hope, make some geek a really unique Christmas present, because I couldn't bear to part with it to anyone who wasn't. And in case you hadn't guessed as much, this set is entirely unique. This is the only canister set I've found in my repurpose-shopping.

Dishwasher and microwave safe, though why you'd want to microwave a canister is frankly beyond me.
