There's just something about an old fashioned recipe box. Good recipes are shared, collected, passed down, and cherished. My collection of recipes has certainly grown over the years to include a variety of my own concoctions and experimental adjustments, contributions from my mum, in-laws, friends and acquaintances, and of course the internet has opened up a whole new world to explore. I decided it was high time to organize. I wanted to create something to cherish; something with intrinsic value and substance to pass along someday. A collection of only the tried and true--it must be tested, adjusted, and deemed a "keeper" to be worthy of the box.
I researched and shopped and googled but really couldn't find anything that spoke to me. This was to be a very special thing, an investment of sorts. What was a girl to do?
Well, I made my own.
With a little vision, a trip to Michaels for supplies, a video on the faux antiquing process, patience and elbow grease... Voila: A unique and vintagey recipe box that speaks to me. It says, "I am yours, I am a reflection of you". And I love it. xox
