Sweet Storage: Cookie Jars and Biscuit Barrels

lion cookie jar

Cute but not too cutesy, this cookie jar really caught my eye. [via ohdeedoh] (Update on Nov. 7, 2010: Sadly, this cookie jar is no longer available.) But when I went looking for other nice cookie jars, I was surprised at how hard it was to find ones I liked. However, I did find a few!

cookie jar (or pet treat jar) with calico cat

Katherine Washburn Ceramics makes cookie jars (which might also serve as pet treat jars) with dogs, cats, and more.

This bear pottery cookie jar, made by Chris Hierlihy, comes from the Macdonald Stewart Art Centre in Ontario, Canada.

Over on Etsy, this stoneware cookie jar comes from Riverware Pottery. There's also one in blue.

Inclaynations Pottery also makes a lovely simple cookie jar in gold or black. Update on Dec. 13, 2011: The Inclaynations web site has disappeared.

Coming to us from Scotland is this biscuit barrel - a new term for me - from Wemyss Ware Studio.

And finally, for a total change in style (and price), there's the Waterford biscuit barrel, available from a number of on-line merchants.

I would have a hard time choosing one. They all look great!

Of course, since I like kitties...

I'm set for cookie jars, but I have been looking for cookie tins that nest. I can't find them anywhere. Around Christmas I need 10 cookie tins the rest of the time I need around 2. Has anybody seen some?

Anonymous, I'll see if I can find nesting cookie tins for you.

I need a cookie jar (biscuit barrel) in the shape of a big fat butt! or a buxom woman. Maybe then it would stay fuller, longer!
