As I was dropping off a carful of excess junk at Goodwill, I came across this country-blue-scarf-wearing goose cookie jar...straight from my childhood! I couldn't help but wonder if it was the exact same goose that held dozens and dozens of after-school snack cookies during my grade school years. I entertained the thought of buying it for my mom for Christmas, but then figured she probably didn't want it back 15 years after she sold it for 50 cents at a yard sale. My brother likes to steal really tacky things from Mom's yard sales and wrap them up for her birthday and Christmas gifts. Surely you didn't mean to get rid of this afghan! I thought you would regret selling this cross-stitched Santa doorknob cover!
