Note from the Wintons:
Thanks to all you collectors who took time to comment on Twin Winton jars. We had a wonderful time reading them and appreciate the nice things you had to say! Norma says didn't know she has been married to an icon all these years!! It was very interesting to see the results of the Twin Winton survey and it brought us some surprises too. Thanks to you Barb, for this fun survey.
