My husband and I visited the Upper Peninsula in our home State of Michigan this month with our cousins. The Mackinac Bridge never ceases to amaze me. It's mighty and it's gorgeous. It was built by the U.S. state of Michigan and connects that state's Upper Peninsula and Lower Peninsula together. The Mackinac Bridge passes over a strait of water that connects two Great Lakes, Lake Michigan (to the west of the bridge) and Lake Huron (to the east).
If you are a fan like I am, then you'll enjoy these small mementos of this beautiful bridge!

I got this nautical cookie jar from an aunt for Christmas 2015. It has a similar yet unique design on all 4 sides. She got it at Hobby Lobby for me, because I had mentioned I liked it on a previous trip there with her. Here are the 4 sides...
You can use this to hold cookies, candy, pet treats, and any other small trinkets. I don't have anything in mine, and am enjoying simply looking at it every day.
