My Collection

I've never been one to have a collection but I stumbled upon one without meaning to begin. Once I admitted that I had started collecting, I mentioned it to a few people and the collection grew quickly.

I collect cookie cutters. There. I said it. I have a collection. Let me share it with you!

This picture shows all of my cookie creations. Each one has a story and a memory. Is it like that with all people who collect items?
The red arrow points to a spring set by Martha Stewart. My mom bought these for my birthday this year. Directly behind the arrow is a set of circus animal cutters with a mix to make animal crackers. I am looking forward to trying this with my kids. Again, this was a gift from Mom. The cutters are darling ! Moving clockwise, the green arrow points to a set of 18 fall shapes. I bought this for 75% off after Halloween. The set includes a bat, a coffin, leaves, an apple, and many others related to autumn.

The Christmas shapes were a gift from a former student. The clover and rabbit were in Mom's birthday gift this year. The red bunny was found in an antique store in Guthrie on July 4th 2 years ago. It is made by Tupperware. I intend to find more like this because it reminds me of making cookies with my mom as a child. She had several red cutters in different shapes. Does anyone else remember doing that? Finally, the turkey was attached to a Thanksgiving towel my SIL, Sarah, gave me a year ago. She's always doing nice things like that!

One do I store/display/organize these? Any ideas?

OK, so I had to go back and look at this post. Its been on my mind for a month. I collect cookie cutters, too. It started innocently enough, then exploded. So, I collect them in my pantry, in my closet, in the laundry room, in my drawers, etc. I have no idea what to do with them but I do use most of them. I was hoping you'd have gotten some great ideas that I could snag. Maybe I can find some ideas online. I'll get around to looking in my spare time-probably about 2028, when my cookie cutters have completely taken over every free inch of space.
