A little nostalgia

Look what came in the mail today! Happy sigh! I'm not feeling well, so I am looking forward to a hot shower, a good cup of tea and some reading time.
Guess what I found today while I was picking recipes for the next few weeks?
This was my Great Grandmother's recipe box. I remember a long time ago my Grandmother was cleaning out the basement and was going to throw this out, but I asked if I could have it. I put it up and haven't looked through it since. What is wrong with me? I flipped through it today and had fun looking at the old recipes. Some typed...some clipped from magazines and newspapers and some even hand written. What a treasure! I don't recall alot of special family recipes on my dad side, but I am excited to look through them to see what I can find. I have a book of recipes that my mom/Grandma gave me as well. I think it is about time that I made recipe books for the family.

What a great find! I use several old recipe books from the Woman's club in the little town that I grew up in.

That is a really neat find. I love family memorobelia...especially cool to have the hand written recipies!

I cannot BELIEVE your grandmother was going to throw it away!!! I'm so glad you were there to swoop it up!
