Thank you to DESIGNS BY GOLLUM. No food..but soon...I promise! At least it's a start!
This morning was Farmers Market day..and off we went at 9 this morning, a bit late..and it was already SO hot I wanted cry...but AFTER I got my fresh veggies and flowers! These are not sunflowers..but I bought some of those also.
Yes..I KNOW these are just cookie cutters below..but there is a bit of a story behind these.
You see, I went to this little store that is a favorite of mine, and no, it's not a Thrift shop. It is one of those places that..you KNOW when you walk in that you can have just ONE thing and it better be something you want badly! I mean like BADLY!
So in I went...(did I tell you they call me by my first name?! Does that tell you anything at all?
A little teapot..short and stout! YES!
After scouring the entire store, I was relieved to find that there was not one single thing I could not live without...and was about to leave when..."ARE those COOKIE CUTTERS?!" Yes, they were. Copper ones..and so beautiful. I LOVED them. so I took three of my favorites and headed for the counter.
It is always...always .... a good idea to look at the price tag...even if they are only cookie cutters!
A big fat apple! I loved the detail..
And, my favorite, this beautiful Autumn leaf! I loved it!
All done. And I had only bought THREE things! NOT!
At the counter I smiled and stacked my goodies there...and she rang them up...and I nearly fainted...it was $30.00 plus tax! I mean for three cookie cutters!??
OH yes, you bet I will make cookies this year..I have to make use of these little treasures!
These lovely smelling, grundgy primitive candles I bought on ebay. These are wonderful and the price is good. I bought these last year and they are just as wonderful and fresh smelling as last year. I bought six bundles..but am just showing you two of them.
This is some wonderful orange sugar I bought a couple of years ago..and has never been opened. Do you suppose it is still good? It has been stored in a cool place.. so...shall I use it?
I bought these pumpkin cookie cutters a few years ago...and they have never been out of the box..so..
My promise..I am going to bake Halloween cookies this year...and I am going to decorate them..and...I am going to SHOW AND TELL!
Ok..'nuff of this.. :)
Love and hugs,
P.S. Better late than never...:)
