cookie jar love
I love cookie jars, so I collect them. They live all over our house, mainly in the kitchen. But they're practical little things. We use them in the bathroom to hold tooth brushes and cotton wool balls; in my sewing/study/mess room for pencils and little bits.
At the moment none of them contain a single cookie. I started with two jars that belonged to my mum, then quite a few years ago I was at the Brisbane Gallery / Museum and saw a display of cookie jars that Andy Warhol had collected, so I decided to start collecting too. When I first discovered ebay, I went a little crazy and bought a few that I now regret, so I'm refining which ones I buy. And also people don't package breakables very well as a few haven't survived the post, which makes me a little sad.
