Heritage Bee & Hive Copper Cookie Cutters

I’m pleased to introduce this special edition set of heritage copper cookie cutters designed by me for Good Things by David.  Having worked closely with American coppersmith, Michael Bonne, to create these wonderful iconic images, nothing gives me greater pleasure than making them available to you for your very own home.  Everyone here knows how much I cherish my collectible copper cookie cutters which have been featured  extensively over the years, and it is because of this passion for them that a brilliant collaboration was formed to create a limited-edition set.  Soon to be available exclusively through a store I’m creating, the charming Bee & Hive duo will allow you to bake & decorate unique cookies which are bound to become family favorites.

Who doesn’t love baking delicious cookies in adorable shapes for family and friends?  It’s a time-honored tradition in my house that I have enjoyed doing every single year for various special occasions & celebrations.  This type of gift giving is one of my favorite things to do.  A number of you have shown me your creative talents and artistry with cookie design, and I applaud every single one of your exceptional cookies.  Now it’s time to create more cookies!

What started as a conversation with my friend, Janet, has turned into a new venture.  The collaboration for my set of cutters, along with her very own set of cutters, has sparked an interest with some of you who have known about this special project for some time now.  For those of you who are new to this, now is your chance to own a set of tailor-made copper cookie cutters.

Heritage Bee & Hive Cookie Cutters 

 Coming Soon!

The closed-back copper cookie cutters have clean edges which make cutting out cookie dough a breeze.  Made in the tradition of some of my collectible cookie cutters, the Bee & Hive are large enough to give ample room for creativity.

The hand-stamped Good Things by David handles are comfortable to hold, so using them to make whimsical cookies will be a joy.  I'm beyond thrilled with the quality of my cookie cutters and I know you will be too.

One of my original sketches for the Bee created at home.  This was a prototype drawing that I was mulling over during the process of designing the Bee.  There were many other sketches, but I settled for the one above.

I wanted to keep the Beehive as simple as possible with soft edges and rounded curves.  One problem that I did encounter midway was the opening of the hive.  It was much too wide, so it got downsized.

This is but one design.  I love the color combination and the sparkly effect that sanding sugar gives this cookie.

I don't know of any Bee in nature that is this color.  Pure whimsy!  That's one of the joys of decorating cookies.  One's imagination can create just about anything when icing cookies.

These tasty and colorful cookies were made using my very own Heirloom Sugar Cookie Recipe.  The icing is none other than the Perfect Royal Icing, tinted in various shades of pinks, oranges and yellows.

In a very short time you will have the opportunity to shop for this unique set of cookie cutters presented to you.  With the purchase of a Bee & Hive cutter set I will include a decorating guide showing you how to create the cookies you see here.  Keep in mind, however, that several other decorations will be included in that recipe & decorating card (for customers only).  This set of contemporary Americana will become an instant heirloom meant to be passed down through the generations.  

I hope that you become a part of this experience and create cookies with me!

Antique Salt Cellars

There was a time when salt cellars played an important role on the dining table for the host or hostess.  As a result of it being such an expensive commodity several hundred years ago, salt was seen as a luxury and it was the well to do that made salt cellars quite fashionable & a status symbol for the home.  A single salt cellar usually sat at the head of the table and was passed around throughout the meal.  The closer one sat to the salt cellar, the more important one was deemed by the head of the household.  Smaller cellars that were more accessible and with an open top became a part of Victorian table settings.  Fast forward to the 20th century when salt was no longer a luxury and when anti caking agents were added to make salt free-flowing, and one begins to see salt cellars fall out of fashion.  Luckily for the collector and for those of us who like to set a table with Good Things , this can prove to be a boon. Salt cellars for the table come in silver, porcelain, cut glass

Collecting Jadeite

With its origins dating back to the 1930s, jadeite glassware began its mass production through the McKee Glass Co. in Pennsylvania. Their introduction of the Skokie green & Jade kitchenware lines ushered in our fascination with this jade color.  Glassmakers catered jadeite to the American public as an inexpensive alternative to earthenware soon after the Depression, both for the home and for its use in restaurants.  The Jeanette Glass Company and Anchor Hocking introduced their own patterns and styles, which for many collectors, produced some of the most sought after pieces.  Companies marketed this beautiful glass under the monikers of jadite , jadeite , jade glass , jad-ite , jade-ite , so however you want to spell it, let it draw you in for a closer look.  If you want a thorough history of the origins of jadeite, collectors’ pricing, patterns & shapes (don’t forget the reproductions in 2000), I highly suggest picking up the book by Joe Keller & David Ross called, Jadei

A Tour of Turkey Hill with Martha Stewart and Friends

Martha Stewart led an intimate tour of her former Westport, Connecticut home and gardens for a few of my friends this past weekend.  From the photographs I've seen of that special day, it was an experience that will be remembered for a lifetime by those who were in attendance.  As much as I regret not going to this momentous occasion, my friends were kind enough to allow me to share their amazing photographs here on the blog. Let's take a tour of Turkey Hill with Martha Stewart and a few of my friends. Without the kindness of Jeffrey Reed, Dennis Landon, Darrin David, Anthony Picozzi and Colin Eastland, this post would not be possible.  It must also be stated that the fundraising event was graciously hosted by the current owners of Turkey Hill, the Bergs. Many thanks to the Berg family for opening up the property. Turkey Hill is the Federal style home that was purchased, renovated and landscaped by Martha Stewart and her then husband, Andy, back in 1970.  It was he
