Vintage Thingy Thursday....already!
I guess like the saying goes...time flies when you are having fun! Can't believe another week has gone by. Don't forget to visit the other bloggers at Vintage Thingy Thursday for some more unique and interesting Vintage items.
One tradition that has been in my family for 4 generations is making cookies. Both my daughter and I love to make cookies. At Christmas time we always make cut-out sugar cookies. We have been using the same recipe that my mom and her foster mom used for years. Last summer when I was at the family homestead in Ohio, my dad gave me some old cookie cutters knowing that we are always baking cookies. Instead of keeping them in a box, I have them hanging on either side of my kitchen window ( no space for anything else really). I did buy a few more last fall at an antique store. I love to think of who might have used them and how many cookies they have made. I will continue to look for more on my travels this summer.
Happy Vintage Thingy Thursday!
P.S. I think my post last week didn't work, so scroll down to see some of the tools that my great grandmother use to us to make her croheted doilies, or tating, knitting, check out the name on the pin box!
