Show & Tell Friday # 2

Thanks to Kelli for hosting Show & Tell Friday. It's a wonderful way to share our treasures with one another.

This week, my treasures are two little recipe holders that my mom picked up at a thrift store for me about a month ago. They are old-fashioned and cute and I just love them. The first one is shaped like a rolling pin and on the inside, all of the recipe cards are blank. I can't believe that someone discarded these without writing one recipe inside. My plan for one is to write down Caroline's favorite recipes in it and when she is married, she will have this to take along. She gets the rolling pin recipe holder because she loves to use my rolling pin when she plays with Play-Doh. The second recipe holder, shaped like measuring spoons, will be filled with Logan's favorite recipes for her to take along when she is married.

Both recipe holders:

Inside looks like this:

The recipe cards inside are a little on the small side but we can make it work. They are too cute not to use so I'll just have to be VERY NEAT when I write in them. Thanks Mom! The girls and I really appreciate this and they will enjoy them for years to come! It's nice to know that if they take care of these, they could be in the family for generations.

Don't forget to hop over to Kelli's to see more Show & Tell Fridays!

That will be a beautiful as well as practical and very special gift for your daughter! It must be a blessing to have daughters! Thank you for sharing.

By the way, I read someplace recently that a movie is in the works for Angela Trigianni's Big Stone Gap stories....I loved those stories and really hope a good job is done making the movies...it could be fabulous.

I love writting my recipes in books where they are all together like that. How cool.

So cute. My mom did one for me too when I got married and I still have it although it has burner burns in the top of it from my 'learning years' :o). I always look to that little book for the really good recipes like hot rolls and the good chocolate sheet cake!
