Lighthouse Collection #35

I started collecting lighthouses after Guiding Light went off the air. It has become a way to own a part of the show. I’ve been sharing new additions to my collection. Every year for our birthdays I give my cousin Jewelsam a present from her favorite couple Quola and she gives me one from my favorite couple Manny. I was a little late on getting the photos this year, but here are my presents from Danny and Michelle this year.

Pin 2 Present one is a  gold toned tie tack type pin. It looks just like the 1990s version of the Guiding Light lighthouse. It comes on a black card. It says Christian Witness on the top and Swanson at the bottom along with a Biblical quote “Be my witness to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8.” I think it’s supposed to be a sign that you’re Christian, but I’m going to wear it as a Guiding Light symbol. On the back it directs you to http://www.swansoninc.com . It says they are non-profit missionary organization. Purchase your own pin here:

Present two is a lighthouse cookie cutter. It’s about 5 inches long and is the outline shape in metal type cookie cutter. It’s about 1 inch of metal outline

of a lighthouse with one side sharpened and one rolled so you can press it down. It comes with a recipe card with a drawing of lighthouse it covers the entire front of the card. They only have used blue and black (with the white that’s the card background), but it’s done a great job with gradation to add details and shading. It’s made by Ann Clark Ltd. “The Cookie Cutter People from Vermont.” It apparently was made in Vermont. The design is Lighthouse 01-047. It includes the direction: “To Clean: Hand wash and dry immediately.” Inside the card is the recipe for “Lighthouse Cookies” – they appear to be a form of butter cookie. Also included on the back is a recipe for frosting. Turns out Ann Clark Ltd. is now a wholesale only company, but with the photo of their product she suggests two other websites that sell them individually. They are linked on the individual item page.
