Another Collection...



Probably one of my favorite collections are Vintage Recipe Boxes!! I love the tin boxes with the bright colors and cute pictures, even better if they are full of yellowed, handwritten recipe cards.




I started my collection with the red box above. Then it was like I began to notice them at every Antique store I walked into and I would pick them up. I had quite the collection but I decided to give them as gifts with handmade recipe cards for Christmas a couple of years ago... so now I am down to just a few favorites.


I am sure my collection of Recipe boxes will increase again though. There are so may uses for these fun containers! At the moment I use the majority of mine to store little craft bits in my studio.

  2. My mom has the recipe box that's cream with the red heart and blue and red flowers. I have so many memories of rummaging through that box as a child trying to find a cookie recipe. I love this collection

    1. I like to imagine the people who owned the boxes before, something that was used so often.

    1. The red box is the one that I keep all of my old hand-written recipes that I come across. They are so interesting to read and see what ingredients people used back then. :)
