Do You Ever...


Frame your Grandmothers recipes? I love how old it is...love her handwriting...love the little red check marks next to each ingredient. I think about her making this Cranberry Nut bread. She made it all the time around the holidays. I make it every year now too.  I keep a picture of her next to it...and that's my handmade flower Will made me for Mother's day. My Nana has been gone now for 21 years...I still miss her. But, I love looking at this every day.  I love letters and recipes in frames...don't put them away in a box!

  2. What a beautiful idea. I've kept the cards my late grandmothers sent. I'd still recognize their handwriting anywhere.

  4. What a great idea.
    But most of all, I love that picture of your grandma. Who could help loving a lady with a smile like that?
    Our grandmas make such impressions on who we are as adults. Weird, isn't it?

  10. This is a great idea! I don't know if I have any handwritten recipes from my mom or grandma, but maybe I can do it with one of my own!

  18. I have an old sugar cookie recipe of my Grandma's (she died when I was 9) and I keep it in the front of my recipe box. Thanks so much for the idea...I am going to frame it and hang it in my new organized pantry!
