Reply Lynne says December 7, 2017 at 9:46 am “Thats right, honey, make it look just like it was before. Its a very special tradition we call re-gifting” Reply Jay says December 7, 2017 at 10:02 am Yuck, someone thought it was a good idea to use empty lard tins for giving away holiday cookies. Wouldn’t mind having the vintage wrapping paper. Good Luck Pam! Reply ALLISON says December 8, 2017 at 11:09 am It wasn’t possible to run down to the Dollar Store and get a pre-printed Christmas tin from China in 1955. Is your objection that it was an cleaned-out empty tin, or that it once held lard? Re-using a lard tin was considered being thrifty and clever in those less wasteful times. And if you wanted to mail cookies to a boy in the Armed Forces, an empty lard tin was perfect. Reply Karin says December 7, 2017 at 11:44 am And remember- we don’t tell about the special ingredient in the cookies. Reply Anne says December 7, 2017 at 1:12 pm Help! I just purchased an 2 story 1887 home. Totally refurbished modern with the usual gray and white interior. I put up a wooden white picket fence and painted the exterior black and white. Se has a new charcoal shingle roof. I love the home but wonder if you come across “her” age group info to help put her back a bit to her era, would you pass the info along. I sold a darling, redone mid century to purchase this one. I used your site info so many times to restore that one back to original. Even 1953 appliances with checkerd yellow and white linoleum kitchen floor. Beautiful Reply Chris says December 9, 2017 at 1:43 am Wallpaper will cover the gray paint. I like gray but it is not period. Reply Dave S. says December 7, 2017 at 3:01 pm LOL….”My little helper will be in bed soon. Then I can deliver this cookie tin to my 21 year old pool man.” Thanks for the laugh have a Happy Christmas. Reply Carolyn says December 8, 2017 at 5:13 pm Oh, Anne is so irreverent, when I laugh, I feel kind of naughty. This close to Christmas, I don’t think I’m gonna risk it. Reply Chris says December 9, 2017 at 1:41 am Mommy, I just know I can tie this effing bow. Reply Reader Deb says December 9, 2017 at 7:21 am “Don’t pout sweetie, I’ll give you back your belt when the party is over.” Reply Danny McBride says December 10, 2017 at 10:12 am Mommy, you’re a different person when you take your nerve pill. Reply Mary olson says December 10, 2017 at 1:04 pm Mother says, Oh yes, you’ll make some man a fine wife someday. Reply Annette says December 11, 2017 at 8:49 pm Poor little thing, has clumsy fingers just like her father. Reply Diane in CO says December 11, 2017 at 10:42 pm “Susie, Sweetie, if you wipe your runny nose on that ribbon one more time, Mommy’s going to tell Santa to not bring you that pony…” Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
