You all know that my Kitchen is my favorite room in our house?

I don't have too much in the way of knick knacks in my kitchen. What I do have, however, is a goose cookie jar that I gave to my mother for Mother's Day a good 25 years ago... maybe longer. Mom always kept Stella Doro cookies in it for when the grandkids came to visit. After she died in 1999, I was helping my sister clean out her room at the nursing home/convent (long story) and I saw the cookie jar that they had brought from home. So I took possession of it and brought it home with me. When my daughter saw us walk in with it, she burst into tears! Some of the paint has worn off and it's not the prettiest cookie jar you've ever seen, but it holds lots of great memories of "Mama Gigi" and her kitchen. So now it sits proudly on my kitchen counter, and yes, there are Stella Doro cookies in it.

I work at Hobby Lobby and have for many, many years. I just don't remember seeing that ceramic chicken. But then, we get thousands of items in weekly, so I'm sure it could have slipped by me. Haha!

I seem to be in the kitchen more than any room in my home. I also like to surround myself with things that make me happy. My garden window over my sink holds my jar collection. I have different colors of jars and on sunny days when the sun is shining in, it is just beautiful! It makes me smile.
