I've Got A Lovely Bunch of Christmas Cookie Jars...

There they are, all standing in a row
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head...

It's time once again to deck the halls
with Christmas cookie jars!
I even have a few new pieces to show off!
Let's start on the green cabinet...
No Christmas is complete without a train!
So here's the festive Lionel Santa Fe 
diesel engine cookie jar (1) with the 
classic red warbonnet livery.
A perfect color for the Christmas season!
to the left is a three bowl reindeer server
that Sam and I picked up at Target 
a year or two ago.
I just love the gold antlers.
The snowflake runner was also a Target find!
Up to the right above the backdoor...
we spy sweet little 
"Snuggly Sugar Bear" cookie jar (2)
Hallmark ca.2001
Is he munching on a piece of the
Neiman Marcus Gingerbread 
House cookie jar (3)? ca 2014
Check out the detail on this 
gingerbread house!
It looks so tasty, you can't blame him 
for trying a piece!
Just down below, we see
 that a heavy snow has fallen,
and someone, perhaps, on their way home 
with a Christmas tree, parked their red
 lodge car cookie jar (4)  Kohl's ca.2015 
to build a snowman cookie jar (5) 
 Harry & David ca.2015.
It looks like a chilly winter wonderland!
Moving on to the hutch buffet,
we find the usual Christmas gang.
The original Certified Gingerbread House 
Cookie Jar (6) ca. 2011
up at the top,
along with the Gingerbread Man cookie jar (7),
Radko Holly Jolly Santa cookie jar (8),
Apple Tree Mrs. Claus cookie car (9),
and Frosty the Snowman cookie jar (10).
All happy to make their yearly appearance.
A new red runner this year from HomeGoods
 has a design that hearkens back to mid century 
style with white reindeer and white 
holly berries and leaves.
New on the hutch this year,
but acquired on sale after last Christmas,
Hallmark's Santa and Mrs. Claus 
dancing salt and pepper shaker set.
They don't move, they just fit together like
they're in a waltz.
I put them next to the radio as if
dancing to a song.
Cher is showing off her Christmas cheer by
modeling on the Santa rug,
a gift from my uncle years ago.
But still available today at
Moving along to the dry goods pantry,
past the stained glass snowman light,
we find another Lionel Stream Engine 
cookie jar (11) pulling into
the Spode Train Station cookie jar (12)
The picture in the back is new this year 
from Kirkland's
From the artist Billy Jacobs, called 
"Christmas trees for sale"
I think it adds a lot of country charm.
Cracker Barrel's Red Truck 
with the Christmas tree in back is
technically a candy jar.
so I can't count it.
It sure does fit in nicely with the "cows in the snow"
runner that used to be on the buffet.
Up on the the rooster shelf, or should I say,
down the road from the train station, is the
Lenox Holiday "Home for the 
Holidays" house cookie jar (13)
I put the other farm scene behind it 
to look as if there's an entire 
country Christmas community on this wall.
Finally we head to the kitchen table.
where, nestled in the middle of a tablescape, 
we find Pottery Barn's white reindeer 
cookie jar (14) ca. 2009.
He's happily enjoying his snowy 
woodland surroundings .
I don't think that's all my Christmas cookie jars,
but that's all that I could find in the kitchen.
The rest are for another post.
Hope you all are enjoying the 
Christmas season.
Thanks for stopping by
and happy hunting!
