Cookie Cutters Clearout and Giveaway!

I've been doing a bit of a clearout, and my cookie cutter tin got downsized too.
I had duplicates of some cutters, and some are just too babyish to use now, so they're off to the charity shop, for someone with kids younger than mine to pick them up.
I hope they have as much fun with them as we did.

It was a real trip down memory lane, looking at the different shapes, and thinking about how we used to love working with the dough. And there was always lots of eating dough during the cutting process!
We also used salt-dough with the same cutters, to make Christmas tree decorations.
None of ours survived, but my friend, whose kids made some here on a playdate, lovingly takes theirs out every year, and proudly hangs them on her tree.This last cutter puzzled me for ages. I think I can say what it is, but would you like to guess? Have a go, and I'll confirm on Saturday.
Edit note: Rudee's comment has inspired me to do a giveaway! Since i reached 100 followers, I've been planning on one, but just hadn't got round to it, but here it is:
Put in your guess, and a correct one will be picked on Saturday (if nobody guesses correctly, I'll just pull a random number). I will send the winner a "Pamper Me" burner oil. Anywhere in the world, so start guessing! As many entries as you like.


  1. I haven't a clue what that last cutter is. A saddle? A snake? A clown's mouth. Could be anything, but now I just have to know. You're a big tease making us wait until Saturday!

  2. Maybe a snail that can't turn right side up? I remember those salt-dough ornaments. It took a few years but we finally had to let them go :(

    What a fun giveaway, Mimi.

  3. You've got some great ones here, Mimi! When I had our kitchen renovated, I got rid of tons of metal cake and biscuit cutters that belonged to my husband's late mother, and probably her mother, too!

  4. Gosh -I have no idea what that is. Maybe i need to think about that one a bit :)

  5. I'm going to have to think about this for a bit. I was going to get rid of all our cookie cutters and the lovelies had a fit. Birdie took them!
