Antique Cookie Cutters


Yesterday I did some rearranging of my early cookie cutters. I like how they look when mounted on an old cutting board. These have been mounted on this one since the 1970′s and it was time to replace a couple and fix some of the velcro that holds them in place.

Early cookie cutters have always been a passion of mine. Every year I would look forward to using them for making Christmas cookies. Did you know that about the same time the Europeans first settled here, check they began bending and soldering tinplates into cookie cutters. By the early 1800′s tin peddlers traveled country roads to delight children with cutters for creating cookies like flowers, thumb designs, animals,  people and more. Owners treasured their cookie cutters, and some Pennsylvania German families handed down their collections from one generation to the next. Many families still do this today. Why not start your collection and make a happy memory for you family?

    I just saw something about this on tv. It spoke the same things you wrote about.

    I go to school in Canada and we just now are learning about
    this in the classroom. Thanks for helping me with the last part of my report.

    Thanks for the outline of tv stuff.
    I absolutely think that cable tv is going to go away.
    Or at least have to change with the times.
    Internet television is definitely the wave of the future.
    As computer speeds get faster, everyone will be watching their tv shows on sites like this.

    What do you know about this? I think there’s a lot more to
    the concept
    I was just watching this on PBS yesterday.
    They spoke the same things you wrote about.
