I fell in love with this image on Pinterest about a year ago & have been thinking about it since then. I love this kind of art -- personal & old & full of a story.
I already had a few recipe cards that Glenn's grandmother (one of the sweetest women who ever lived) sent to me when she was alive. My mother still has all of the handwritten recipes that her mother passed down, so I had my dad color copy one of them for me.
I placed them in frames from The Christmas Tree Shop (just opened here in Virginia!) & put them up in the kitchen:
This is the one from my grandmother. "Stir & Drop" cookies -- sugar cookies that are a well loved favorite in our family. You can see from the stain on the recipe.
These are the cards that Glenn's grandmother sent to me when I asked her for the recipes for Glenn's favorites. We miss her so much. She was such a wonderful grandma.
Seeing these every time that I pass through the kitchen makes me so happy.
