Maybe it's silly, but I loved the old label and the memories of Mama's mincemeat bar cookies it evoked,
so I bought the old mincemeat jar for a couple of dollars at Monticello Antique Marketplace.
I filled it with small, shiny ornaments and set it on my kitchen windowsill.
Mama bought me these little snowman ornaments some years ago.
She was not one to spend money on things that weren't necessities.
I love them, because for her to buy me something with no practical purpose was such a rarity.
This year, my kitchen windowsill is filled with things that remind me of Mama.
It makes me smile.
