To put next to my imaginary KitchenAid mixer

Someday, I'd love to get my own version of the vintage cookie jar my mom has at her house. It's cream and has cookies all over it, with a walnut as the top of the lid.

Story has it that she had this cookie jar back in the day at my grandmother's house, but my aunt broke the top of the jar so they threw it away. We grew up hearing about how great this cookie jar was, so when I was in college I found one off of eBay and forwarded it onto my aunt. She bought it for my mom for a birthday, and all was well with the world.

Erin has a vintage cookie jar of the Pillsbury Doughboy from when her grandfather worked there, and it's quite cool. I also saw a neat one of a Scottie Dog.

I have space above my cabinets, and I definitely want to put something on them other than the Christmas plates I got for Christmas a few years ago, and a cool cookie jar might be it. I'm also debating Jadeite Kitchen items. What to do... what to do...

I have a similiar story. We got this cookie jar full of cookies from the lady next door who had moved to Amarillo, Texas from Houston where we lived in the early sixties. I some how think that it came from Sears as that is where the lady worked. I loved this cookie jar growing up. It was lost or broken, not sure, but I also found one in the early 80's at a flea market in Amarillo, where I had moved to from Houston in the early 80's, It now resides in my kitchen and my daughter has grown up with it and loves it, too!
