My mom kept the cookie cutters and cake decorating tool (a hand held extruded) in an old box with pink and yellow starburst flowers on it. Just looking at that box, knowing what was inside it, thinking about those times makes me smile.

This past summer I was given that box and its contents because my mom doesn't think she's going to be baking holiday cookies any more. I looked at it the other day and was filled with a sense of nostalgia, but I leave the baking to Janet, the expert. Still, I thought I should show them some love. So I took the box down to the studio and made ornaments. I'll have fun decorating them but I doubt they will smell as good in the kiln as the cookies did in the oven. It doesn't matter, I only hope that whoever buys them includes them in the family traditions for many years.
