I was browsing around the local Kiwanis Thrift Store last Thursday, just wasting a few minutes before I had to be at my dental appointment. I came upon this old black box decorated with strawberry decals. It looked like something that I could repaint and "prim up". At the same time I was wondering what this would have been used for. It had a $3.00 price sticker on the outside. Should I take a peek inside?
Are you ready?
I hit the mother load of vintage recipe clippings and handwritten recipe cards. As a collector of cookbooks - both old and new, I could not pass up this treasure. At the same time it reminded me of a blog posting I had seen a couple of weeks ago. Someone had taken an old handwritten recipe and framed it in an old reused picture frame. I told myself "I can do that too". So here is what I did with one of the typed recipes in the collection that was obviously a treasure to someone years ago.
What a perfect way to use up some of the old picture frames we always seem to pick up during our Goodwill shopping sprees.
