Whenever friends come to our home and go into the jar room, they always ask what my favorite jar is? That's a hard question to answer, because there are different aspects of each jar that caused me to buy them for the collection. But if I could only choose one to keep, it would have to be my Hull Little Red Riding Hood with the red overspray on her skirt.
What's funny about this choice is that when we first started collecting, I proclaimed the Little Red Riding Hoods to be too girlie, too foofy, too china doll for me. Then I saw my first one in an antique store. I was hooked and now I own two, plus one set of salt and pepper shakers.
That's the thing about only seeing cookie jars in the books. The pictures just don't capture their real magic until you see them in person.
