Collectibles of the Week–Scottie Cookie Cutters

Green scottie

I  have so many wonderful collectibles acquired over the last 80+ years.  Some were gifts, some were part of my life growing up, some were inherited, some were purchased at antique malls, gift shops or thrift stores  – all are precious to me.  Some items are kept up year-around while others are brought out seasonally and on holidays.  Unfortunately, many priceless-to-me objects go undisplayed and unseen for years, so each week, I’m going to pull out an item and post a COLLECTIBLE OF THE WEEK.

In line with my love of anything Scottie, I have a small assortment of cookie cutters.

The green-handled cutter at the top is one of my favorites, part of a larger collection of vintage cutters with depression-green handles.

I also like a red-handled Scottie and two plain vintage aluminum cutters plus a copper one from the 70s.

The card with the Scotty and recipes was a St. Nick gift one year and the red plastic along with the small aluminum cutter with an upturned tail give me a wide range of size and shape when I want to bake Scottie cookies.

Look What I Just Found at the Antique Mall

Today, we went to one of my favorites – The Covered Bridge Antique Mall in the Mt. Healthy suburb of Cincinnati.  This darling 1930s-40s era metal table and chair set in depression green was marked down from $70 to $35.  I have no idea where I’m going to put it but it had to come home with me.  The table is 3 inches tall and the chairs, about 3-1/2 inches tall.  There is a darling graphic of a sunbonnet girl on each piece.  The color is a little off in this picture.

Now, I’ll have to be on the lookout for a vintage doll or two and some dishes.
