Hi and welcome to another fun Vintage Things Thursday, hosted by Suzanne of http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/search/label/Vintage%20Thingies%20Thursdays. Every Thursday we get to show off our vintage treasures, and visit other blogs to see their vintage goodies. So much fun! Thanks Suzanne! Today, I am sharing my vintage recipe collage made by Cynthia of http://cynthiascottagedesign.blogspot.com/. She had done a post about all of her mom's recipe cards, and mentioned she might want to make a collage. What a great idea. So, I thought it might be nice to make a collage of some of mine, my moms' and my grandmother's recipe's. These are written in everyone's own handwriting, which I thought would be a special keepsake. I wrote to Cynthia, and asked if she would be interested in making it for me, because she is a design consultant, and makes the prettiest designs with papers, and graphics. She is a sweetheart to work with, and this is what we came up with. Please click on the picture to enlarge. I just love how it turned out!
A few of the images, like the one on the bottom left, was in my mom's recipe box. We incorporated it into the design. Didn't she do a fantastic job? Also here are some of my moms'
original baking items from the 50's. Her rolling pin, aluminum measuring cups, egg beater, cookbook, and flour scoop. I have such fond memories of my mom and I baking, and these vintage items mean a lot to me. Thanks for looking, and don't forget to stop by Suzanne's for more vintage fun!
