Thrift Thursday---Orange Cookie Jar


It seems to be much easier to find small ceramic-fruits-and-vegetables for my collection than to find big, juicy ones--so I was thrilled to see this fabulous cookie jar in the shape of an orange on a recent thrift-store foray!

I love the shiny, luscious color of the orange, and the humor of the stem-and-leaf handle. I have to say I think the contrast of the green and orange color is wonderful!

The cookie jar measures 11" to the top of the leaf, it's 8-1/2" wide, and it does have a few dings and chips. The interior is a tasty, slightly deeper orange. All for $3.00--love it!

    1. Thanks--I love it! ButI'm starting to wonder if I should cull the collection again, or just get more shelves. . .

  2. Very cute. I've decided I want to add a citrus theme to my kitchen. I've been going to thrift stores looking for similar items. Enjoy!
