Before we talk about the newest edition to my Martha Stewart by Mail
copper cookie cutter collection... Meet Lilly! Thanks to a Sur la Table
gift card I received from my mommy this week, she's the latest addition to
my LeCreuset collection. Tomorrow Lilly and I will make dinner together!
But this evening, it's all about Christmas cookies and specifically, these wonderful
copper cookie cutters designed by coppersmith Michael Bonne for Martha Stewart!
But this isn't just any old set of Michael Bonne cookie cutters for Martha Stewart...
Because this set was sent to me by Michael Bonne
himself! And, they come from his personal collection!
No really... See? Michael even signed the outside of the box to me!
How'd this happen? Well, I'll tell you... I recently purchased a Michael Bonne
cookie cutter through e-Bay from a member under the name of, Mrb.239 and
when the package arrived, the return address read, Michael Bonne. So in my
e-mail thanking the seller I asked... Are you the Michael Bonne? And, Michael's
lovely wife, Teresa wrote back to confirm it was indeed Michael selling off some
of his duplicates. So I asked if by chance they might have any of the sets Michael
designed for Martha Stewart's catalog available. Of course, I was beyond thrilled to
learn he had this set, plus a full set of the very, very impossible to come by 5-piece
Kitty-cat collection. We'd just lost our sweet Bing and I really wanted to create cat
shaped cookies to take into his vet's office... So I am truly grateful to Michael and to
Teresa for allowing me to add that very special set to my collection. Although I've
used them to create the most adorable cookies, I just haven't found the emotional
energy to decorate them yet. I still miss Bingee terribly. So on we go to Christmas!
Are you looking for Micheal Bonne cookie cutters too? Then I suggest you
add his seller ID, Mrb.239 to your favorite sellers list... Because there's
no telling what treasures Michael might be willing to part with next!
Tomorrow, we decorate Christmas trees!
