Cookie jars find a match made in Heaven!
Now I bet your wondering how these two cookie jars have anything in common with Heaven. Well, allow me to share their story. Mr. Pig, on the right, was a gift to my parents, Cloyce and Betty Phillips, on their wedding day June 14, 1945. He spent much of his life with my parents. One day he was so graciously given to me by my Mother to have and to hold. I was now married and my husband's Grandmother, Maple May, was the proud owner of Ms. Winnie. I always admired her cookie jar because I had become so fond of my Mr. Pig. When sadly we lost Grandma May in 1976, I was asked if there was anything of hers I would like to have. I had two requests. Of course one was this precious cookie jar and the other was I wanted an apron that Grandma May often wore. So because Grandma May passed over to the other side into Heaven, Mr. Pig and Ms. Winnie were united together in our home. The litte pigs and kittens were random finds. Since Mr and Mrs. Pig had no pigletts of their own, they were delighted to adopt! Just one more piece of history created into "Pieceful Memories"!
