I'm going to take a breather from my cookie jars for awhile. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. We are going celebrate Thanksgiving in Queen Creek. Home cooking!
By the way..... Bandit, yesterday, discovered the toilet paper. Yes siree! With toilet paper in her teeth, she came running toward me. Since that was a new roll of toilet paper, it unrolled the length of the house and then some. She was so proud. Like saying to me... Look Mom, look what I found!
Happy Thanksgiving to all

Cookie jar books are good to read for: who makes them, their marks, years of manufactured, etc. They list prices - My opinion is: It is only worth as much as someone will pay for it! This is Hull's Little Red Riding Hood. It has an open basket and three poinsettias. Supposedly it is worth $600 in the book. You wouldn't catch me paying that much for a cookie jar.
This is the Twin Winton Elephant cookie jar and matching salt and pepper shakers. I had the cookie jar for a couple years. This year my husband found the matching salt and pepper shakers at a yard sale. He only paid 50 cent for both. They both even have their stoppers.

I forgot when I listed my Lionel train cookie jars about this one. This is a Santa Fe train cookie jar and I also have the salt and pepper shakers to match. My daughter would say... "Mom, it's ok. You have half-timer disease." :)

I found this cookie jar at a yard sale for $10. The man said his four year old grandson trys to play with it when he comes over. Afraid of breaking it, the "grandfather" decided to sell it. ummm
I wanted to tell him that I have over 450 cookie jars on display all over the house and my grandchildren show respect for the "breakable" ...... but didn't.
My son and his family went to the swap mart out on the West side of Phoenix. He was looking for tools. Along with the tools he found, he found this cookie jar for $5. It is made by Clay Art. My husband loves to golf so .... my son bought it for him for Father's Day. Cool gift!

I found this Avon bear cookie jar at an antique shop in Scottsdale, AZ. There are two Antique malls side by side up on Scottsdale Road. Ocassionally, I go there and just look around. Rarely do I ever leave without buying something :)
