When the VVA was having their 50% off sale I picked up this super fun cookie jar. Prior to this we did not have a cookie jar, for two reasons: (1) I don't often bake cookies and (2) when I do they don't last long enough to be put into a jar. But this one still had the tags on it from the store it was originally purchased from and I only paid $3.50 for it. You can see that the lid doesn't really sit flush on the jar, but I embrace imperfections, as that word has come to practically be my middle name! And who wouldn't love a cookie jar they can write on. Anything chalkboard seems to amaze me!
