Our Cookie Jars

Our friends Comet and Blu have posted about their cookie jar and they are curious to see everyone else's! We are too!
Their cookie jar is a silver ice bucket so it has more than one purpose!

We actually have 2 cookie jars! Lucky dogs, right?!

The pumpkin cookie jar is on top of the refrigerator and is HUGE and it holds un-opened bags of treats and pig's ears and busy bones and anything that requires chewing and gnawing and keeping us busy, hopefully for hours!
My gram made this cookie jar a L-O-N-G time ago and she actually won first place in a ceramic show with it!
Mom is a very pumpkin crazy person and she absolutely was thrilled when gram gave this pumpkin to her! And to be very honest - gram had mauve kitchen counters at the time and gram is very color oriented and to her mauve and pumpkin orange just didn't go - so that's how mom REALLY acquired this beautiful pumpkin cookie jar!
Thank goodness our mom isn't as fussy! We have pumpkins all over our house all year long - not just at Halloween and Thanksgiving!
Can you see our bully stick up there laying right next to Mr. Pumpkin? We're waiting for mom to haul it down and share it with us!



Our other cookie jar is redware that mom bought off ebay. Our kitchen trim is painted a barn red color and mom loves country stuff so our second cookie jar is in keeping with the kitchen theme!
We really don't care what kind of theme it is as long as it contains yummy cookies and we get at least 1 or 2 of them every single day!

So those are our cookie jars! Your turn! We want to see all of your cookie jars too!

So until next time.................

Love ya lots,

Maggie

M&M!!

LOVE your cookie jars! They're so festive and hold the promise of good eatin'.

Sadly, we have no cookie jars in our house, because my girl must squirrel away our treats so we don't stand in front of the cookie jar all day waiting. If we had one, I'd proudly show it!

Goober love,
Stanley

Patience-please said...

Wow, if you have TWO cookie jars, and there are TWO of you, that's a cookie jar apiece!!! we have three cookie jars, but there are nine of us, which makes it a very bad ratio of only one cookie jar per three whippets.
Humph.
You obviously have superior servants.

Hmmm, here is something else we don't have. Do you have dog treats in your cookie jar? Our treats are in the cupboard but a cookie jar is a great idea. Think I'll order one for Christmas. You two are very lucky dales.

I think if I lived there, the big cookie would be mine. Penny & Lola could share the little one.

Those cookie jars are beautiful. It is hard to find nice cookies jar around here. Mostly it is those glass kind or stainless steel ones.

By the way, we got your card yesterday and we think it is so beautiful. However, we are embarrassed to say that we still have not send out the parcel for you guys. We try to do it by this week.

Hey pals, I'm feeling neglected here as I don't have ANY cookie jars. Not one! But biscuits don't really stay round long enough to make it into a jar, hehehe! J x

Superb cookie jar! Now we see where your mum gets her creative talent from!
My mum loves growing pumpkins and squashes. Normally she ends up with wheelbarrow-loads of them.
