I have had this Gingerbread House cookie tin for at least ten years, maybe more. But last night it single-handedly proved my theory that "Cute is Forever."
I went to the Junior League of Birmingham's New Member cookie exchange with 3 dozen gingerbread men (yea!) and brought my gingerbread house tin as a means to carry the cookies I got at the exchange. The girls like the gingerbread men alright, but it was this cute tin that got all of the attention. When asked where I got it, I said that it had been at least 10 years and that I couldn't remember where I found it. Then I added, "But cute is forever."
***Update: November 2013: Fancy Flours is NOW carrying this Gingerbread Cookie Tin!
Now we can't buy everything we see, and I know that we can barely store what we have, but sometimes a standout item like this is too cute to pass up. And every time you pull it out, you'll love it all over again. When you work this hard on cookies, you need a worthy container.
