Just Say Yes

  IMGP0410

        When my father called this past weekend and said, “Do the girls want any of this stuff on the shelf above the washer?”, I said yes.  I always say yes. 

     This offer did not produce the treasures she had in her garage closet, but I didn’t care.  I always say yes, and not because I am a collector or because my daughters are as well.

     I say yes because it was my mother’s. He could call and say, “Would the girls like this sack of dirt?”, and I would say YES.

     The cookie cutters were part of that small stash, along with her bundt pan, and a hammered aluminum serving bowl.

          She would love knowing that Daughter #1 can now use these to make cookies for her boys at Halloween.

              Here are 3 of the 4 cookie cutters she used for her bridge club luncheons.  I wonder where the diamond is?

     Here is her biscuit cutter.

And my favorite-

Aren’t these wonderful? Wouldn’t jewel toned icing look good on these cookies?

Just say YES.

Love the cookie cutters! The vintage shapes are so fun. It's funny, but my mom had the ones with tghe ace, spade, club and diamond. She used to use the diamond one alot at Christmas time. Wishing you a wonderful week!

The fact that you want things that your mother owned really is what I wanted to comment on. I hope my daughters feel like that one day.
Yes! I would say the same thing...and did.

It was really sweet that your Dad called to ask, some would just pitch things. I remember when my Dad died we went through boxes and boxes of little miscellaneous things. Oh how I loved it!

If I see a diamond one at a resale shop or garage sale, I will send it to you. How wonderful to have things that were your mother's. I have never seen the ones shown with the crown. Wonderful!

I have never seen the copper ones. I too have many cookie cutters. They are also easy to make yourself.

How nice of your father to think of you as he cleans.
