Tuesday’s Tree Treasure

It’s been a long time since I posted a Treasured Tuesday. First up, cookie cutters, one of my favorite collections just right for the holiday season. During the twenty years that Tidings of Great Joy manufactured Christmas ornaments, I collected dozens of cookie cutters, used to cut shapes into the clay. I love using them now, as they were intended, cutting cookies! Most are vintage in many unusual shapes and a variety of sizes. I was able to utilize them again in a recent Christmas fabric line called “Cookie Cutter Christmas.” When not in use, they are perfect to double as ornaments for a decorated kitchen tree and door wreath.

This year I placed these fun tin toys underneath the tree. They are a child’s full set of cookware (c1950’s), including tiny red cookie cutters. When I spotted them in a shop (still in the box) they reminded me of some that I may have had. I remember spending an over night at my Gramma Wecker’s once, when she actually let us bake in our muffin tins. I thought at the time what a special treat, one of those grandma indulgences.
