I wrote a post in March about my love of stars and one of the reasons why. My grandfather started telling me when I was a little girl how I was so special that I had a star on my birth certificate. It was a long time before I realized that it couldn't be true, but that he had given me a little story that made me feel very special.
I thought it would be fun at our beginning-to-summer to spend a little time on things besides school and teaching. I'd like to share another of my star collections. My husband and I have acquired a lot of antiques throughout our marriage, some inherited and some purchased. So I thought of something to collect that would take a little searching and wouldn't be a big investment: star cookie cutters. I have quite a lot, am always on the search, and still find a different one now and then. There happen to be lots of different old ones. I don't buy the new ones. So far, I have 48 stars, and two moons (I couldn't resist). The stars are five and six pointed, and one with only four points. They are mostly metal, some with green or red handles, or red and green plastic. It's been fun looking.
Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
Do you have a special collection?
