So last week or the week before Amy at All Things Home
did a post on how she displayed her Grandmother's handwritten receipts.
If you didn't see it, check it out
I loved it!!! What a great idea!!!
Amy and I chatted and told her how much I loved her idea!
If you haven't noticed my Gram and I were pretty close.
I miss her so much!
I have her old recipe book and card file.
My Grandparents were from Des Moines, Iowa.
I'm not really sure how the
Chicago Evening American Cook Book
came into her hands.
But she showed it a lot of love..........
She had a bunch of recipes she cut from the paper and
her own recipe cards stuffed in here and her recipe box.
And then in the back she wrote a bunch of recipes!
Sooooooo, remember this from Christmas?
I ended up adding a lot of green branches to it and by Christmas it was full
of Christmas cards along with my vintage cards.
I dug it out of The Shed of Junk.........
Turned it to the other side......
Added some of Grams recipes, her old spice cans,
and some of her old kitchen stuff.........
Oh and I added a piece of trim for another little shelf
for the spice cans.
Gram also dated the back of the cards and added a comment
if it was good or not.
The dates are, 1929, 1934, 72 etc.
Thanks Amy for such a great idea!!!!
