I love all kinds of old things. When one of my favorite sites Remodalaholic had this project to frame old recipe cards I just had to share it. What a cool idea!!! I will have to some this with some of mom’s recipes since we don’t need her recipe cards anymore thanks to a several thousands copies of Dining on a Dime!
Oh, I just found another one to use those ugly bread boxes! How cool! I’m on the look out for one or two now!
I was looking at my recipes the other day. Boy what fond memories I have in looking at those. I have recipes in my grandma’s writing, my mom’s, aunts and many other friends and family members.
I will some day pass my recipe box on to my granddaughters. I know many of my recipes are in Dining on a Dime but some how it isn’t the same as my recipes in their box with all the years of splatters and love smeared all over them.
I feel so sad because now everyone loves the convenience of putting things on their computers and I know it is easier but holding that recipe my grandma or mom wrote for me brings cooking for me to a whole ‘nother level.
