Cookies, snow, a cozy house and good company - that is what the holidays are about. I personally love frosted sugar cookies with red hots - my sis in law always makes me a batch - and puts so many red hots on the top that no one else will eat them! Love the cookie jar - I am gonna get out my old decals and do one myself!


I like your cookie jar and cookie cutters too. I have a lot of the red cookie cutters, but didn't know they were called "HRM". What does that stand for?

What a beautiful snowy picture leading to the cookie exchange house ~ what fun.

Merry Christmas.


Happy Birthday!
Love the cookie jar.


Happy Birthday To You!!

Happy Birthday! Hope your day was warm and cozy! Love the snow pictures and cookies! Cute cookie jar too!
And I would not be ashamed to admit I ate all the cookies!

Don't be ashamed - be proud! It's a proven stress reliever to eat all the cookies. I know all too well, and have the extra 10 pounds to prove it. But it was sooooo worth it!


Great idea fr the cookie jar!Now I'm wishing I hadn't ebayed all my decals!!




Well, like several others, I have it on good authority that it is your birthday. So Hapde Burfday to you!


I thought your brownies were intense and fabulous -- every cookie plate needs a little chocolate! I agree that it would be a great gathering even without cookies... Most importantly, it was nice to see you!


Happy Birthday! I love your cookie cutters. I have inherited quite a few from my mom and have given some to my married daughters. I love that last picture.


Cookies and good company...sounds wonderful! I love all your cookie cutters. I wish I would have saved all my mom's :(

Happy Belated Birthday!

I love the cookie jar that you can see into! That's a great idea. I have 2 big jars with cookie cutters in them...you're giving me ideas! THANKS!


Oh, I wish I could find some of those old decals! I LOVE your cookie jar. And the cookie cutters! They are great; I have quite a collection of those, too. I have hung the HRM red ones in the window - they look so pretty when the sun shines through. I have the whole Nativity set, they look especially nice when displayed together. I love your blog so much - all of your lovely decorating and photos have left me awestruck and inspired.


I sell repros of the old decals here: http://www.sweetgaldecals.com

I love those old Meyercord decals, your new cookie jar is fabulous!!


Love the jar!! I have each of those metal cookie cutters, but my tuperware mat died last year. I didn't know they would replace it for free or I would have kept it, but it was from the '70's and I loved it!

A little blog told me it was your birthday! Hope you had a wonderful day!

Even when we are talking about cookie making my country is a boring one: We just make little cirkels as a 'tradition', no funny shapes at all. Mmm at this very moment I get a wave and I know that I'm lying: there are antique wooden forms to make 'speculaas', but not likely to be found on a flea market, the real ones I mean. There mostly shaped like a man, and they were called something as 'lovers', I don't know the right word, when you are going steady with a man, that man is now called your boyfriend, but was he always? Here we used to call that guy a word with a meaning like lover. Mmmm we are not that boring I see...looking forward to your post on stress relief!!!!


You're right, definitely couldn't avoid those cookie cutters if you're in your 40s! I bet those brownies wouldn't be as sweet if you put a little vanilla ice cream on them!
